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.”

Strangled Light comes out July 28th on Gilead Media. The album was recorded and mixed by Kowloon Walled City frontman Scott Evans at Sharkbite Studios and Antisleep Audio, and mastered by Brad Boatright (Full of Hell, Mutoid Man) at Audiosiege.
