Wicca Phase Springs Eternal (ex-Tigers Jaw) releasing acoustic EP (hear a track)
After Tigers Jaw‘s major 2013 lineup change, former co-frontman Adam McIlwee began focusing on his “emotional trap” project Wicca Phase Springs Eternal. Wicca Phase co-founded the GothBoiClique, which now has more visibility than ever thanks to Lil Peep.
Wicca Phase is releasing a new EP, Raw and Declawed, on July 14 via Disposition Collective (pre-order). It’s an acoustic EP that ditches his trap beats entirely. It sounds more similar to what Adam was doing in Tigers Jaw and, actually, he wrote opening song “Icebreaker” while he was still in that band. Like some of his best songs on his last album with Tigers Jaw, 2014’s great Charmer, “Icebreaker” is dark, moody, and introverted, with Adam’s mopey baritone sounding as gripping as ever. The song premieres below. Live shows are TBA soon too.
Meanwhile, the current Tigers Jaw lineup just wrapped up a tour, including a show at NYC’s Webster Hall (pics).
