Worlds End Press @ Ed Castle – July 27th
With the release of To Send Our Love - the first single from their forthcoming debut LP - World's End Press have announced their own headline tour.
Since the end of last year, the band have co headlined a tour with Collarbones, supported international stars Hot Chip and Bloc Party on their Australian tours, performed a New Year's gig at Falls Festival, a buzzed about show for the L'Oreal Melbourne Fashion Festival's Independent Runway event, and a set in front of tens of thousands of people on the steps of Flinders St Station for White Night. In June, the band head to the US for a couple of shows with Cut Copy and their own headline shows in NYC and LA.
These local headline shows will provide fans with the opportunity to hear the band showcasing tracks from their debut album - due for release later this year. One such song is lead single To Send Our Love, a darkly melodic beast of a track. Think surging synths built upon a rock solid pulsing bassline and propulsive drums, all coalescing around John Parkinson's urgent vocals.
Along with the rest of the band's new material, To Send Our Love was recorded in the UK with the revered Tim Goldsworthy (DFA, Mo Wax, The Rapture, Hercules and Love Affair). An incredibly fruitful creative collaboration ensued. The first song revealed from the recordings was album teaser, Deadbeat Sweetheart, premiered on Spin.com with the video revealed on Brooklyn Vegan. Clocking in at 7 minutes, the seductive track was loved by radio announcers and lauded by bloggers.
A moodily swirling seven-minute song that reclaims the dance floor for the romantics. - Spin
A seven-minute romantic carpet ride to the dance floor. This track will surely catapult their career into a frenzy, if it hasn't already. - Indie Shuffle
It's neu-romantic, meets dance-punk, meets David Byrne, meets distortion-rock, meets some-other-stupid-made-up-collaborative-genre. But at the end of the day, it surpasses their previous works with ease and it makes us excited for some more details on the LP. - Purple Sneakers
Together with To Send Our Love, the two tracks suggest exciting things to come from the upcoming debut. These shows are your opportunity to hear some of World's End Press's new material for yourself. Tickets on-sale now.
