It's New Year's Eve, so we might as well close out the year with one last awesome exclusive for 2012. Today, I'm very excited to premiere a brand new The Appleseed Cast song titled "North Star Ordination," which you can stream in the replies. It's a part of an upcoming 7" that's a part of the Graveface Charity Series, which you can read about here. We also have the exclusive scoop on the band's upcoming 8th LP - it's titled Illumination Ritual and will hit stores on April 9th via Graveface Records, which is something to definitely get excited for in 2013. So check out the new track and let us know what you think in the replies.
The Appleseed Cast are currently working on their next album, which they're aiming to release in May 2012. Until then, check out their stunning EP Middle States that came out earlier this year on Graveface Records.
Most of you have probably heard The Appleseed Cast's newest EP The Middle States when Graveface Records sent out advance downloads earlier this year. If you haven't yet, however, I highly recommend checking it out on their AP.net profile where it's currently streaming in its entirety. This is by far some of their finest work, which is the biggest compliment a consistent band such as this could possibly receive, so I urge you to give it a listen. The opener, "End Frigate Constellation," is one of the best songs I've heard all year, and the rest of the record is just as wonderful. Enjoy.
The feedback to The Appleseed Cast track we posted a few weeks ago was so positive we were asked to stream the entire Sagarmatha record, ABSOLUTExclusively. Head to the band's AP.net Profile to hear one of 2009's first great releases. If you like post-rock and instrumental indie, do not miss it.
