Freshkills are welcoming another set of slithering gothic post-punk with Raise Up The Sheets, their new LP due on March 13th via Bat Rabies/The End Records. The band looked to Jim Sclavunos (member of Grinderman/Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds, ex-Sonic Youth, The Cramps, etc) to try and contain their live energy and drunken-late-night-sexy and you can hear some of the results in two tracks (""The Bigger Man" and "Positive Vibes") from it above and below. Check out the video for "The Bigger Man" available for the first time below.

The band will celebrate the LP release with a stop at Pianos on March 9th with Kid Savant and Such Hounds (tickets), the first date in a string of shows on the their way to SXSW.

Full set of tour dates are below, along with the video and all streams...

My step-Dad's drunk wife ran over and killed my puppy Timmy when I was 7; Timmy remains the only thing I've ever loved.

At the request of the Make-A-Wish Foundation, I once dedicated a basketball game to my biggest fan, Charlie, a terminally ill 6-year-old boy. I went 0-for-11 with zero points, 7 turnovers and we lost the game by a large margin. Charlie died as the horn sounded ending the game.

The morning after finally making love to the love of my life, we sat on the curb waiting for a cab and she told me my legs reminded her of her grandfather's. I never made love to her again.

Caught that band Such Hounds the other night at Glasslands and they were pretty killer. Looking forward to this bill!

WTF? This song sucked. Did I listen to the wrong song? Must be a band member posting over and over again how good the song is.

Shitty derivative song. Bass tone was great though.
