Quicksand announce first album in 22 years, ‘Interiors’
Highly beloved and influential post-hardcore heroes Quicksand recently announced a lengthy tour for September and October, and now they have announced that their first album in 22 years will come out this year! Whoa! It’s called Interiors and it’ll be released by Epitaph. Exact release date is still TBA, but maybe we’ll get it (or at least a single) by the time tour starts? It’ll be the band’s first album since their 1995 sophomore LP Manic Compression. Watch an announcement video for the new album below.
UPDATE (8/22): The album will be released on November 10 and lead single “Illuminant” is out now! Listen and check out album details here.
As mentioned, Quicksand’s tour includes NYC shows on September 30 at Irving Plaza (tickets) and October 1 at Warsaw (tickets). Shoegazers No Joy are opening both (and the rest of the tour). All dates are listed below.
Quicksand frontman Walter Schreifels has also recently played reunion shows with his classic bands Gorilla Biscuits and Youth of Today. Earlier this year, his psych band Dead Heavens released their debut album. Last year, his newer punk band Vanishing Life released their debut album.
