East of The Wall

New Jersey quintet East of The Wall walk the line between stunning instrumental prowess and keeping it heavy on the live stage, which is one reason why they'll be a formidable match for like-minded Brooklyn heavyweights Dysrhythmia at Union Pool on 10/22. The 1000 Knives CMJ showcase will also feature appearances from City of Ships and Meek is Murder, and $10 gets you in.

Before Saturday arrives (if you aren't heading to the BV-Rocks Off boat show the same night), make sure and prep for the show by digging into The Apologist, East of The Wall's new declaration of dizzying riffs interjected with moments of first-pumping brutality. NPR recently made one track available for stream, but you can stream the entire LP now in full below, and for the first time. Order your copy via Translation Loss.

Stream The Apologist in full, and check them out on tour at the dates below.
