With the musical prowess and aggression of bands like Fugazi and Shotmaker, We Were Skeletons’ unique brand of technical, groovy, and emotional hardcore should appeal to long-time fans of the genre while still pushing its boundaries. Imagine Hot Snakes, Slint, Sleepytime Trio, mewithoutYou and Off Minor all rolled into one breathtaking statement — and I'm not just saying that. I never just say that. But still, to reiterate: I'm not just saying that.
Blame & Aging is a record that one-ups anything and everything this band has ever done and is the band's best collection of songs to date (trust us, we've known them for a while). Featuring 13 awesome new tracks, Blame & Aging will be released on October 22nd everywhere. Order it in the Topshelf store now!
Absolutepunk has premiered "Disease Artist", the sixth track from the record over on their site. Go give it a spin!
Additionally, the band will be hitting the road with Joint Chiefs of Math on an east coast stint that'll take them to and from Fest 11. Dates and info are below. Facebook event page is here.
