War Brides follow in a long line of Midwest post-hardcore, calling to mind the sounds of Slint and Shiner with echoes of 1000 Hurts era Shellac. Their music, however, is by no means dated, as they slot just as comfortably alongside contemporaries like noise rock’s Pissed Jeans and post-metal’s (and fellow Chicagoans) Pelican.
Tracked at Howl Street Recordings in Milwaukee during the latter half of 2012, the band enlisted Chicago engineer, Carl Saff (Guided By Voices, Chelsea Light Moving, Dinosaur Jr., Unsane), to master the EP.
