Cymbals Eat Guitars streaming new LP, add 2 more NYC shows to tour (6 total)

by Andrew Sacher


New York indie rockers Cymbals Eat Guitars will put out their third album, LOSE, next week (8/26) via Barsuk and it’s currently available to stream on NPR. It’s an excellent album, and singer Joseph D’Agostino has spoken in interviews saying most of it is about the death of a high school friend (who passed away in 2007), but also about loss in general. “I wanna wake up wanting to listening to records, but those old feelings elude me,” he sings on “XR,” recalling how important a great record can be to you in your youth. It echoes similar sentiments made two years ago in a Pitchfork interview by Titus Andronicus singer Patrick Stickles, whose album The Monitor D’Agostino calls the best album of the last five years. If you’re looking for the kind of big, cathartic rock of The Monitor, you’ll find it on a few tracks here (“Warning,” “XR”), as well as a diverse palette of other sounds, like the 8-minute psychedelic pop opus, “Laramie.”

As discussed, Cymbals Eat Guitars play a Brooklyn show at Baby’s All Right (8/26) on album release day (tickets), and they’ve since added two more NYC shows happening surrounding that. First, they play an in-store Tuesday (8/19) at Apple Store SoHo which is free with RSVP, and then on August 27 they play a $5 show in their hometown of Staten Island at 5050 Skatepark with Bueno, Grooms and Aches.

After that, they go on a previously discussed tour supporting Bob Mould, which includes his NYC shows happening September 10 & 11 at Bowery Ballroom and 9/13 at MHOW (tickets). So that’s six total chances to see Cymbals Eat Guitars in NYC over the course of the next month.
