| 20 September 2012 | Reply

East Coast buzz band EMPTY FLOWERS will release its debut album SIX on September 25 via Translation Loss Records. The quartet features current and former members of Cable, Zodiak and Balboa and is being praised for its multifaceted sound that combines both melodic and noise rock elements with the haunting vocals of amply bearded frontman Christian McKenna. The record was recorded by Keith Souza and Seth Manchester at Rhode Island’s Machines with Magnets multimedia arts facility (Battles, Six Finger Satellite, Lightning Bolt) and boasts cover art from visual designer Jason Hellmann (Jesu, Pelican). Today, Pitchforkpremieres the new EMPTY FLOWERS song “Ice on Wings“, saying the band “stitches together Polvo guitars, a push/pull that brings to mind Guy Picciotto throwing himself around a stage, and a mid-song dynamic lift that goes well with the collection’s icy cover art.”  Check out “Ice on Wings” alongside a remixed version of the track by onetime Cable and Isis member Jeff Caxide today at this location.

In advance of the late September release of SIXEMPTY FLOWERS has dropped a special single via Atomic Action! Records teasing the song “Call a Priest” and backed by the Caxide remix of “Ice on Wings“.

“Empty Flowers, a post-rock band featuring members of Doghouse/Hydra Head-related Conn. metalcore group Cable, are reminiscent of Girls Against Boys, Honor Roll, Lungfish, and other older acts, in the way they meld speak-sing vocals to slinky minimalist repetition.” – PITCHFORK
“The giant, melting blue-white glacier on the front of Empty Flowers’ debut is a decent indication of what’s in store for your ear’s enough to chill the air.” – DECIBEL
