Bootblacks

Brooklyn's gothy-leaning Bootblacks are set to release their debut album, titled Veins, which will be out March 11. Mixing synths, drum machines, echoey guitars and impassioned singing, the band are direct sonic descendants of Xymox and Front Line Assembly. The album's first single, "Sub-Rosa," premieres in this post and you can stream it, and check out Veins artwork and tracklist, below.

Bootblacks were to have played Acheron this past Saturday (1/23) but it, like pretty much every show that night, was canceled due to the snowstorm. No makeup date has been announced, but they play regularly in NYC, so keep an eye out for shows. They have announced a European tour for the spring, and those dates are listed below.
