Xerxes has announced more details about their forthcoming 7″ on No Sleep Records. It’ll be called “Would You Understand”, and is now up for preorder. The 7″ will have two songs – Grinstead and Tramadol (below in video).
Fusing elements of atmospheric post-rock/punk and melodic hardcore, Kentucky’s emotive post-punk band Xerxes has spent the last four years of their existence carving their own path with a true DIY work ethic fueled by ever evolving creativity. And the result has been nothing short of incredible, resulting in one of rock’s most promising new bands.
XERXES signed with No Sleep Records in 2012 and subsequently released their debut full-length Our Home Is a Deathbed later that year to mass critical and fan appeal. After several tours of the U.S. the band returned home to record their follow-up EP, Would you understand?, which is due out on June 18, 2013.
