Strangelight Streaming "Split And Divide"

With the release of the "9 Days" EP due out October 8th, Alternative Press is now delivering a new tune from Strangelight. Check out "Split and Divide" at this location. The following press release was also issued about the band:

"Named in homage to a track off Fugazi's 'The Argument,' Strangleight is an eclectic collective of souls forged in a small Brooklyn basement studio. Featuring the creative forces of Brendan Tobin (Made Out Of Babies, Red Sparowes), Cooper (Made Out Of Babies), Kenneth Appel (Goes Cube, Cleanteeth, White Widows Pact), John Niccoli (Mussels) and Geoff Rickly (Thursday, United Nations), Strangelight draws upon DC visionaries, Amphetamine Reptile destroyers and Touch & Go noisemakers, offering up all the signature stylings of an early '90s Dischord band.

"Written and recorded at Tobin's own Ice Cream Audio in Brooklyn, New York in just nine days, the EP serves as an honest, simple name for a simple, honest record. Commended for dishing up six 'massive, post-hardcore jewels, with nice clean and melodic vocals, dissonant guitar work, a fantastic rhythm section and quality song writing,' in an early review by Echoesanddust.com, 9 Days is angular, discordant, rhythmic and driving, an emotional outpouring of noisy discontent. Anyone with a deep record collection will understand that Strangelight aren't trying to reinvent the wheel, just taking the dust jackets off the old classics and melting the vinyl down for fun."

Strangelight Announces Debut EP

Strangelight was forged in a small basement studio, and features members of various other collectives including Made Out Of Babies, Thursday, Red Sparowes, Pigs, United Nations, Goes Cube, Mussels and Kiss It Goodbye

While their past and current bands share little in common, Strangelight - Brendan Tobin, Cooper, Kenneth Appel, John Niccoli and Geoff Rickly - share an adoration for all things angular, discordant, rhythmic and driving. The following press release was issued about the new project:

"Drawing heavily upon DC visionaries, Amphetamine Reptile destroyers and Touch & Go noisemakers and named in honor of a track off Fugazi's last record, The Argument, Strangelight offers up all the signature makings of an early '90s Dischord band: Drums and bass rumble along like a tornado. The guitars stab their way out of the mix like broken glass. The fact that they're not distorted only makes them heavier. The vocals, mumble, shout, indict and accuse. Anyone with a deep record collection will understand that Strangelight aren't trying to reinvent the wheel, just taking the dust jackets off the old classics and melting the vinyl down for fun."

Strangelight will release debut EP, "9 Days," on October 1st, 2013 via Brooklyn-based Sacrament Music. The track listing is as follows:

1. Split And Divide
2. Mosh Party
3. High Five Hailstorm
