Yesterday, Quicksand announced that they would release their first album in 22 years, Interiors, this year via Epitaph. Now the first single is here! It’s called “Illuminant” and it has Quicksand sticking to the metallic post-hardcore formula that they helped invent. Listen below.

Will Yip, who previously worked with Quicksand frontman Walter Schreifels on Title Fight’s 2011 album Shed, appears to be hinting that he worked on this new Quicksand album as well.

UPDATE: Album details (including artwork, release date, and tracklist) have been revealed, and yup Will Yip produced it. More HERE.
