New Noise Magazine is now hosting the premiere of “Consequences,” the new single from Upstate New York-based LACES OUT. The band will release their latest EP, Roger Podacter, through Nefarious Industries next week.
LACES OUT sounds like licking dirt with tiny granules of sugar scattered throughout. Hailing from Orange County, New York, the band features members of Warwick-based post-punk quintet Pigeon, as well as acts Mandark, Veneer, and others. Drummer Steve Delucia and guitarist Ed Ciarfella have been playing together in various projects for nearly twenty years. Longtime friend and local scene veteran Ray Wasnieski joined the duo in Pigeon and continued onward with them in LACES OUT.
Dynamics and angular progression drive their sound, which is heavily influenced by noise from the ’90s. Listeners can expect to hear elements of Fugazi, Unwound, At The Drive In, Jesus Lizard, Pissed Jeans, BVS, Young Widows, Drive Like Jehu, and Nirvana from their songs.
The band’s first material since 2017, Roger Podacter was recorded by LACES OUT and Jeff Rendano at Boomstick Recording, Monroe, New York, engineered and mixed by Rendano. The tracks were mastered by Eric Castillo and the EP was completed with artwork by Joe Kelley.
With “Consequences,” Ciarfella writes, “It’s a super fun song to play live and always gets people to rock out! The title sums up what the song is about, but I like to think of it as more of a question on how we choose to act in the face of consequences. So, it’s more like a song about the choices and paths we choose, I suppose.”
Stream LACES OUT’s “Consequences” first through New Noise Magazine now at THIS LOCATION.
Nefarious Industries will release Roger Podacter July 15th, digitally and in a run of 100 cassettes. Preorders are available at the label webshop where “Steady” is playing HERE.
The LACES OUT crew has been writing steadily throughout the pandemic and the new EP is just the tip of the iceberg. The band will release a full-length LP through Nefarious Industries late this year among other sporadic singles and releases to see release over the months ahead.
