YELLOW EYES NEW ALBUM & TOUR ANNOUNCEMENT

YELLOW EYES NEW ALBUM & TOUR ANNOUNCEMENT

 

With Immersion Trench Reverie, the seventh release from Yellow Eyes, the band pushes their delirious sound into new territory.

Recorded to tape in the same Connecticut cabin that was used for Sick With Bloom (and other Yellow Eyes releases), Immersion Trench Reverie brims with a familiar shimmering resonance, but infused throughout is an aura of something else— shortly before the early springtime recording of the album, brothers Will and Sam Skarstad returned home from a month in Siberia, bringing with them field recordings and a new sense of exigency in their songwriting. The result is the most complex, pummeling Yellow Eyes album thus far, framed with the sounds of Siberia in the winter: flat bells, wild dogs, and the close-harmony singing of a town’s women’s choir. And so the hallucinatory melancholy of Yellow Eyes is cast in strange new light.

The album was recorded, mixed and mastered by the band and features M. Rekevics on drums (Fell Voices, Vanum, Vilkacis, Vorde), Alex DeMaria on bass (Anicon, Obaku), Sam Skarstad on guitar, and Will Skarstad on guitar and vocals (Ustalost, Sanguine Eagle, Vilkacis).

Immersion Trench Reverie will be available in September on LP (Gilead Media) and Tape (Sibir Records.)

Streaming audio and pre-order details will be announced in the coming months. Stay tuned.

 

 

Yellow Eyes are proud to announce they are lining up a European tour for later this year with ULTHA, get in touch with their booking agent if you’re interested in helping out with a show. Luc@doomstarbookings.com.

NEW LESS ART SONG, DIANA THE HUNTRESS, STREAMING NOW AT NPR

NEW LESS ART SONG, DIANA THE HUNTRESS, STREAMING NOW AT NPR

“Vigilante rage courses through the veins of Less Art… A hulking piece of post-hardcore sculpted from Drive Like Jehu’s nasty grooves and Unwound’s squirrelly tension.”
–NPR Music

NPR Music has premiered “Diana the Huntress,” the latest track to be revealed off Less Art’s upcoming debut LP, Strangled Light.

Less Art is the new band featuring brothers Riley and Ed Breckenridge of Thrice, Ian Miller and Jon Howell of Kowloon Walled City, and Mike Minnick of Curl Up and Die.  On Strangled Light, these five veterans put forth a muscular new version of post-hardcore that crackles with feeling.

New single “Diana the Huntress” is inspired by the true story of a woman in Juarez, Mexico, who sought vengeance for women being sexually assaulted. “Where the police do nothing / In a city that doesn’t care / She strikes the ego of man / Their blood runs through the street / And then she speaks / She says: I am an instrument / This is a warning to those that think we are weak,” sings frontman Mike Minnick.

NPR calls the song, “a hulking piece of post-hardcore sculpted from Drive Like Jehu’s nasty grooves and Unwound’s squirrelly tension.”

NEW COUCH SLUT TRACK AT NPR

NEW COUCH SLUT TRACK AT NPR

Hear “Company Picnic With Dust Off” Now

Our friends at NPR are currently featuring a new track from the forthcoming Couch Slut LP.

“One minute into the spine-crunching “Company Picnic With Dust Off,” the guitars detangle from the throttling rhythm section like water skating across oil. Megan Osztrosits is a merciless presence, a vocalist who can pierce Couch Slut’s thick, rancid riffs with startling terror, howling about the depravity of humanity.”
