Sorry for the radio silence lately… I’ve been busy! There’s a number of things to be revealed over the coming months. Some you may expect, others you may not. Patience, my friends.
Today’s news is about my band How To Destroy Angels. I’m happy to announce we’ve formally partnered with Columbia Records for our next series of releases. The first of these will be available in November and it’s called An Omen EP. As you may have guessed, it’s an EP. It contains six songs, some of which are from our full-length LP which is coming early next year.
We are making some videos, we are going to be performing live, and that’s all the details I have for now on those matters.
Regarding our decision to sign with Columbia, we’ve really spent a long time thinking about things and it makes sense for a lot of reasons, including a chance to work with our old friend Mark Williams. There’s a much more granular and rambling answer I could give (and likely will in an interview someplace) but it really comes down to us experimenting and trying new things to see what best serves our needs. Complete independent releasing has its great points but also comes with shortcomings.
We are all very excited about you checking out the new stuff. Wish I could tell you more, but you know how this works… it would take all the fun out of it!
So there you have it. EP called An Omen in November, full length early next year. The band will release videos, and perform live. Other things to be revealed in the coming months, including some surprises.
Update: Antiquiet has just received some more specific details. An Omen will be available November 13th, digitally and on 12″ vinyl. The full-length album is set for a Spring 2013 release.
Likely tracklist for An Omen:
1. Keep It Together
2. Ice Age
3. On The Wing
4. The Sleep Of Reason Produces Monsters
5. The Loop Closes
6. Speaking In Tongues
