Beak Recording Debut Full-Length; Feb. 23 Show at Beat Kitchen

| 1 February 2013 | Reply


Feb. 1, 2013, Chicago – Beak, the Chicago-based post-metal quartet who made a splash with their 2012 EP release Eyrie,  are currently in the studio working on their debut full-length.

“The forthcoming record is a contemplation on beginnings and the struggle for life,” explained vocalist Jon Slusher. “As a follow-up to Eyrie, if in record time was the end of all things, then the new album deals with creation after the destruction, the cycle of life.” The band has reunited with engineer Neil Strauch (Iron and Wine, Bonnie Prince Billy) and are recording at Steve Albini’s Electrical Audio.  The album is due this fall.

Eyrie was an unexpected surprise from a relatively unknown band with review after review noting what a surprising and worthwhile find the five-track release was.  Spin said “Chicago post-metal party crashers have songwriting acumen and hardcore bent that… Neur-Isis copycats sorely lack,” Heavy Metal added “I have no doubt that Beak will become a force to be reckoned with” and Stereokiller offered “Eyrie is more than a pleasant surprise.  It’s one of the better EPs I’ve heard in sometime.  It being an EP is really the only somewhat negative thing I can say.  I want more, 5 tracks isn’t enough.”

The band play a hometown show on Feb. 23 at Beat Kitchen where they will perform songs from Eyrie as well as a preview of what’s to come on the new album.
