Trophy Scars

Post-hardcore turned prog rock wizards Trophy Scars returned earlier this year with their new album Holy Vacants, and they'll continue playing shows in support of that through 2015. They're currently on the road in Europe with '68, but upon returning home the NJ band will play a NYC show on January 11 at Coco 66. Also on that bill is I, Revere, Disparager, Husbandry and Graves. $10 at the door gets you in.

If you haven't heard Holy Vacants yet, it's worth checking out (especially if you're a Mars Volta fan). Here's what we said about it:

The album is filled with tons of non-traditional (for rock) instrumentation, gospel choirs, '70s prog leanings, and singer Jerry Jones' Tom Waitsian growl. The individual parts aren't anything you haven't heard before, but they've never come together quite like this.
