DC post-hardcore act Brief Lives will be self-releasing its new 7 inch Whistleblower on March 19th....
BRIEF LIVES (Richmond, VA) is excited to announce that its newest EP, Whistleblower, will be out on March 19, 2013. The two-song 7-inch will be self-released by the band and pre-orders will launch at the end of February.
It's also worth noting that Brief Lives will have advance copies of the vinyl for its upcoming East Coast tour with Springtime. Details below ...
Recorded by guitarist Chris Compton (Memorial, Hold Tight!, Family Cat), Whistleblower will be available on 7-inch and digital formats, with the former limited to a pressing of 500 on white (100) and black (400) vinyl. The EP's two tracks are an angular-yet-melodic blast of DC-inspired punk rock, weaving themselves deftly amidst sinewy rhythms and jagged riffs. Brief Lives never looses sight of a solid hook though, and its foundation is built upon infinitely captivating song structures and a propulsive backbone that's always moving things forward at a snappy pace. Whistleblower is unquestionably a must listen for fans of Jawbox, Quicksand and Bluetip.
You can check out Brief Lives' discography at Bandcamp, and its Self-Titled debut EP and 2011's Never Last are currently available for free download.
As previously mentioned, beginning on February 22nd the Virginia quartet will embark on a two-week tour of the East Coast. Joining them for the majority of shows will be fellow Richmonders and recent Tiny Engines' signees, Springtime.
