Creepoid

Philly shoegazers Creepoid recently released another single from their upcoming Cemetery Highrise Scum (due 6/23 via Collect Records), "Shaking." There's a bit of shoegaze in the guitars here, but this one sounds more like a retro ballad with clear, crooned vocals. Check it out below.

Creepoid already have plenty of shows coming up, and since we last spoke they added even more. They're opening two Refused shows including Brooklyn's Music Hall of Williamsburg tonight (6/4) (sold out), and they have their previously-announced record release show at NYC's Mercury Lounge on 6/23 with Relapse-signed psych rockers Ecstatic Vision (tickets).

A few days after the Merc show, they team up with their hardcore-leaning Collect labelmates Sick Feeling for a Ridgewood, Queens show on June 27 at Trans-Pecos with more TBA (tickets), which is after they play an acoustic in-store at NJ's Vintage Vinyl that afternoon. Later this summer they co-headline with Marriages at Music Hall of Williamsburg on July 24. Tickets for that show are on sale now. All dates are listed below.

Marriages

Marriages released their debut album, Salome, earlier this spring via Sargent House. It follows 2012's Kitsune EP and singer Emma Ruth Rundle's excellent 2014 solo album. If you liked Emma's album, Salome should be right up your alley as well. Her very distinctive, powerhouse vocals are the star here once again, and they sound great over the band's kinda gothy, kinda post-rock sounds. It's a little bit like their Sargent House labelmate Chelsea Wolfe, but certainly its own beast. Stream the album in full below.

UPDATE: Full Marriages/Creepoid tour announced. All dates are listed below...
