Two great bands to be coming out of the Bay Area…Bosse-De-Nage and Deafheaven…have announced that they will be working on a split EP to be released via Flenser Records. No solid release date but aiming for Fall, both bands will enter their respective studios to record. Deafheaven will bring us “Punk Rock / Cody” by Mogwai, while Bosse-De-Nage will provide a new original track.
Bay Area bands Bosse-de-Nage and Deafheaven will be recording a split E.P. for Flenser Records this weekend. Saturday, Deafheaven will be holed up at Atomic Garden Studios with Jack Shirley recording “Punk Rock / Cody” by Mogwai, while Bosse-de-Nage will be recording a new original track with Justin Weis at Trakworx. Deafheaven vocalist George Clarke commented, “We’ve been looking forward to this project for a while. It’s very exciting to be working with two of the most innovative and forward-thinking staples in the Bay Area, Bosse-de-Nage and Flenser Records.”
Deafheaven hails from San Francisco and their last album, Roads to Judah, landed on countless “best of” lists for 2011, including #6 on NPR’s Best Metal Albums and #22 on Pitchfork’s Top 40 Metal Albums. Esquire Magazine called the band “Brutal and bracing, with a shoegazing indie-rock band’s ear for graceful melodicism.”
Bosse-De-Nage is one of the most recent and intriguing enigmas to arise within the Bay Area underground music scene. The elusive four-piece can be best described as a band who combine influences that range from minimalist-outsider black metal, punk, and early ’90s indie art rock.
More information, including street date, artwork, and pre-order details will surface soon.
