“Pianos Become The Teeth create a landscape of melody and brutality” – http://bit.ly/9ZtAg7
Topshelf Records (Defeater, My Heart To Joy, Pianos Become The Teeth) is stoked to announce the signing of We Were Skeletons from Lancaster, PA. The label will release the band’s newest Self-Titled album on June 29th on LP and CD format. Look for pre-orders to begin around the first of May.
We Were Skeleton’s brand of screamy, chaotic hardcore should appeal to long-time fans of the genre. The album was recorded with Will Killingsworth (Orchid, Ampere) at Dead Air Studios and is the band’s greatest accomplishment to date. Imagine City of Caterpillar, Kidcrash, Off Minor and Hot Cross, all rolled into one breathtaking statement. This is an record that must be heard!

Rooftops takes its brand of intricate math pop and layers it generously with acoustic guitars, horns, strings and percussion. The resulting arrangements create an impressive sound uniting math rock and post rock into something bold, new and exciting. The band adds vocals to the mix only sparingly but at brilliantly timed intervals for maximum effect. It is the bold, unbridled enthusiasm of math rock harnessed only by the restraints and subtle nuances of post rock. A Forest Of Polarity is the sound of two becoming one. Can you hear it?

CYLS has also begun to reissue some of its favorite albums on vinyl. First was Benton Falls‘ seminal debut, Fighting Starlight, on beautiful red and white 2xLP vinyl.

Both albums were originally released on Deep Elm Records.

Last but certainly not least, Empire! Empire! (I Was A Lonely Estate) is going on its first European tour in April! Stay tuned for all the confirmed dates.
The follow-up to the critically acclaimed It’s Okay, Bow And Quiver will be pressed on CD format … although there are plans of an 12″ LP version between Bermuda Mohawk and Solidarity Recordings later this year as well.
imadethismistake is currently streaming two brand new songs, “Billboards” and “Stateside,” on its Myspace page. You can also download a free mp3 of the former track here. Additionally, the band just filmed a video for “Billboards” here. If you’re a fan of B Horror flicks, you’ll appreciate the concept.

Dates are still being finalized … stay tuned for more information, including details about a European tour in June / July, as well as a trek to the West Coast in the fall.
