Next week, Nefarious Industries will release Drastic Shadows, the debut full-length from Chicago alt-rock band LAVISHER. As the album’s public unveiling approaches, Captured Howls is now hosting the advance stream of the new single “Garment.”
LAVISHER‘s debut full-length, Drastic Shadows was recorded and mixed by Pete Grossman at Bricktop Studios in Chicago, Illinois (Jesus Piece, Nequient, Without Waves), while the tracks “Escape” and “Drastic Shadows” were recorded and mixed by J. Hall in Franklin, Tennessee. The album was mastered by Brad Blackwood at Euphonic Masters in Memphis, Tennessee and finished with artwork photographed by Cesar Contreras and edited by Emily Germann.
On “Garment,” LAVISHER‘s Gavin Cushman III states, “It’s a response to what I see in the news. There’s no common ground or nuance anymore. I wanted to write something that was mostly smooth throughout and then exploded at the end when I attacked the biggest villain of them all, that being blind, slavish devotion without thought.”
Captured Howls writes, “The Chicago band Lavisher sound memorably confident on their upcoming debut album Drastic Shadows, which packs the group diving into intense waves of sound with the readily apparent guiding hand of musicians who know their craft. Their intense but simultaneously accessible rock music captures an experience of turning tension into a near irresistible drive forward. Right away on standout track ‘Garment,’ the band’s earnest, emotionally honest music and lyricism gets stuck in your head and stays there.”
LAVISHER’s “Garment” can be streamed early through Captured Howls RIGHT HERE.
Drastic Shadows will see release through Nefarious Industries on eco-wallet CD and digital platforms next Friday, October 18th. Preorders are live at the label webshop HERE and via all digital providers HERE.
LAVISHER is a rock band whose sleek riffs and time-bending grooves draw comparisons to Failure, A Perfect Circle, and Queens Of The Stone Age. Their darkly uplifting songwriting is composed of minimalist poetry, textured guitar work, throbbing low end, and focused drumming. Following their 2017-released self-titled EP, the band now presents their first full-length recording, Drastic Shadows.
Watch for LAVISHER to announce tour dates in support of the album in the weeks ahead.
