Burst Apart might not be out for almost two more months but the band debuted almost the entire album yesterday and NPR’s SXSW showcase. You can listen to each track from the show in order below, you’ll notice track 7, “Tiptoe” is missing. Apparently the band wants to leave something for release day and decided to skip that song during their set.
The audio isn’t great on these so it won’t be a replacement for the actual studio release but it should give everyone an idea of the direction the new album will be taking. Overall my opinion is favorable for Burst Apart except for the track “Hounds”. My reasoning behind this is that Darby Cicci’s singing of the line “slow down” is truly terrible and I hope it’s not that bad on the album.
Burst Apart is out May 10th via Frenchkiss.
