Nine Circles is hosting an exclusive premiere of “Shooter,” the newest song from Orange County, New York-based post-hardcore/punk trio LACES OUT, advancing their Here At The Ashram LP, out next week on Nefarious Industries.
Prior to forming LACES OUT, drummer Steve Delucia and guitarist Ed Ciarfella had played together in various projects for nearly twenty years, including Warwick-based post-punk quintet Pigeon of which bassist Ray Wasnieski was also a member. The band has been writing steadily throughout the pandemic, cranking out a plethora of songs that embody their angular ‘90s-influenced post-hardcore. After making their comeback in July with the noisy and turbulent Roger Podacter EP, the group is ready to unleash their full-length debut, Here At The Ashram, a collection of nine juicy tunes picking up where the short and sweet EP left off.
As with all the band’s previous output, LACES OUT’s Here At The Ashram was engineered and mixed by Jeff Rendano at Boomstick Recording, then mastered by Eric Castillo and completed with artwork by Joe Kelley.
Ed Ciarfella reveals with the new song, “‘Shooter’ – here’s an interesting one… Have you ever been so angry with someone or some situation that you’ve contemplated or even fantasized – for a split second – taking a life? It’s kind of a powerless feeling, quite shameful too. I’m willing to bet I’m not the only one.”
With its debut, Nine Circles writes of the song, “…this track hits all the hallmarks of the band’s sound; post-hardcore, hooks for miles, and furious noise rock all wrapped up in one tight package. So yeah, licking dirt with granules of sugar is pretty damn apt of a statement. And expect the rest of the album to be as energetic, angry, and catchy as this, just from different angles.”
