Fitness new EP "Astare" out 11/5 - new single "Astare" out now

we're very excited to announce that the new Fitness EP Astare will be coming out Friday, November 5th! The first single "Astare" is streaming now via Fitness' bandcamp, and you can listen below.

On their newest EP, Fitness push further into the propulsive sound that they refined on 2020's Full Well. Building off of the momentum from Full Well, they refine their distinctive post-whatever cadences and here reveal an entirely cohesive four tracks, a release that shows the band growing into themselves and sounding truly confident in their songwriting. The titular lead single "Astare" is a taut three minutes and has an effortless and almost maybe avant-Is This It energy. It is a remarkable piece of songwriting that carries Devin Murphy-Hopp's yearning lyricism and coheres it into an astonishing package. Stay tuned for more soon!

You can pre-order Astare here and receive a limited edition zine with the release: https://fitnessband.bandcamp.com

Eieieio / Gorgeous Split EP out Friday 7/16 + singles out now

we are so excited to finally announce this project that has long been in the works - a truly outstanding split record from label mates Gorgeous (NYC) and new band old friends Eieieio (Hadley, MA). months in the making, this collaboration brings two absolute shred factory powerhouses together for 17 minutes of exhilarating rock. the full split is out Friday, July 16th, 2021.

the first two singles "okokOK" (Eieieio) and "Raindrop" (Gorgeous) premiered via the one and only Post-Trash. Read a bit of what Dan G has to say below and check out the songs.

"okokOK” is their single from the split, a song that finds Kochanski on lead vocals as the band rip like a tidal wave crashing into an avalanche. It’s combustible upon impact with transfixed vocals, jaw dropping rhythms, and bleeding skronk, all jammed into one and a half brilliantly chaotic minutes."

"“Raindrop” which knowingly stumbles around with collapsed time signatures and shape shifting rhythms. The whole song stream rolls forward, jittering between sludge and their own strange sort of twee melodic sensibility. It’s heavy but sweet, deranged but catchy, and it marks a great new offering from the the acerbic Gorgeous."

You can pre-order the limited edition, super special tape right below. It comes with a 4-panel fold out j-card and gold glitter tapes. it is extremely special! It is also not shipping out till September 1, which makes the wait even more exciting. http://www.sadcact.us/products/705918-eieieio-gorg...
