Walking Bombs – the solo/collaborative project of New York musician Morgan Ywain Evans – is poised to release its sophomore album, Brave Hours, on April 14.
Following the outfit’s 2016 Peace Quest EP, Brave Hours was put together in 2016 with major involvement from engineer and multi-instrumentalist Jay Anderson (Surmiser), and was mastered by grunge legend Tad Doyle. The record, which features a wealth of collaborators including Spirit Adrift‘s Nate Garrett and VOWWS, delivers an eclectic blend of grunge, alternative, industrial, post-punk and more.
Today, we at Svbterranean bring you the first taste of the upcoming effort in the form of its opening track, “Dry Heaves”. The track is full of electronic, post-punk splendor, ethereal atmospheres and extremely catchy pop sensibilities. The track also features guest saxophone from Shining frontman Jørgen Munkeby. Evans says of the track:
Combining hazy-eyed stoner groove with grunge grit and industrial splendor, Walking Bombs is an interesting project that is both unique and familiar. Walking Bombs is the side project of New York musician and music journalist Morgan Evans (ex-Divest, Antidote 8) who, along with a revolving door of collaborators, creates multifaceted rock tunes that alternative and weird music fans both can get into. Svbterranean are stoked to premiere the new single from the project. “Peace Quest: Ephedra Fragilis”. The track, which will appear on the forthcoming Peace Quest EP, was mixed by Jay Andersen of noise band Surmiser in Saugerties, NY and mastered by grunge legend Tad Doyle at Witch Ape Studios. The song also sees Evans teaming up with multi-instrumentalist Martyr Art. Evans says of the track:
Gridfailure – the noise/experimental project of one Dave Brenner(Earsplit PR, ex-Theologian) – has premiered a new track from its upcoming EP, Further Layers of Societal Collapse, at Loudwire. Titled “Woodlands of Self-Impalement”, the new track issues over seven-minutes of hollow, haunting soundscapes. Check it out after the break.
Further Layers of Societal Collapse will be released on October 30.
