Wildhoney releasing debut LP on Deranged, touring, playing NYC shows w/ Weed Hounds, Beliefs, Leave the Planet, more
by Andrew Sacher
Baltimore shoegazers Wildhoney have signed to Deranged Records (once home to Fucked Up, White Lung, and others) to release their debut album, which follows a few EPs. The album's called Sleep Through It and is due out on the label this February. You can get a taste of the LP from its title track, which is definitely full of those shoegazey guitars but it's first and foremost a pop song, not obscured by layers of distortion and reverb. Listen below.
Wildhoney are on tour now with their jangly Baltimore neighbors Expert Alterations, and will hit NYC soon for a show on January 25 at Silent Barn with two local shoegaze bands, Weed Hounds and Gingerlys. They play NYC again on February 4 at Cake Shop with an all-shoegaze lineup of London's Kanine-signed Leave the Planet, Toronto's Beliefs and NYC's Dead Leaf Echo. All dates are listed below.
