Anchoress announce “Crime”, premiere first single “The Rumrunner Blues”


Dying Scene is pleased to bring you an exclusive peek at the details to “Crime,” the upcoming 6 song EP from Vancouver, BC’s Anchoress. The EP compiles the first 6 songs from the band’s upcoming second full-length due out later this year.

“Crime” will be out digitally on February 4th via Defiled Under: Music. Vocalist Rob Hoover describes the songs as:

“A stylized sojourn through some of the darkness that covers our lives. It’s about the inevitability of destruction and the equally inevitable reconstruction. It’s about drug addiction and our damaged environment. It’s about dealing with situations that we can’t understand while trying to stay sane. It’s about the places we go when we can’t and of course, it’s about crime.”

In addition, the band has unveiled the lead single “The Rumrunner Blues” which we have made available below for your listening pleasure. “The song was written about my great grandfather,”Hoover explains. “In my parents’ house, my mom has the front-page clipping from the Seattle Post-Intelligencer, back in, I think April of 1930. It’s basically this account of how the Coast Guard had a run-in with a rum runner, and how they fired shots at him, but he got away.”

Anchoress released their first full-length “Set Sail” via Defiled Under: Music last year.

“Crime” Tracklisting:

1. Disaster Porn
2. Fangs
3. Break The Dam, Release The River
4. The Last Sailing Of The Miskatonic Mariner
5. Curtain Call
6. The Rumrunner Blues
