Aeges To Release New EP "Roaches"

California's Aeges, which features members of Pelican, Tusk, The Rise, Cutthroats 9, 16, and Shift, will release its first EP titled "Roaches" on September 13th via Hawthorne Street Records. The band's publicist commented on the Aeges history and sound:

"ÆGES grew out of a temporary hiatus of the members' other bands, and the desire to forge ahead into heavier terraine and new material. There's a definite element of desert rock in ÆGES sound --the low-tuned guitars, the sludgy sun-baked riffs, the deceptive pop hook buried in the molasses-thick instrumentation. Yet the diverse backgrounds of the band members create a unique blend of perspectives and a resultantly fresh sound.

"The common sonic thread between the four individuals in ÆGES --their tenure in bands that explored the darker side of hardcore - manifests itself in the aggressive tonalities of their sound. But their divergent paths, both geographical and musical, broadened the emotional palette beyond the angst of their earlier bands."

The band has just returned from a West Coast tour with Pelican and the Power of the Riff Festival. Stay tuned for select dates from the band later on this fall.
