Las Vegas post-hardcore band Caravels and Baltimore hardcore band Octaves are releasing a 4-song split on January 27 through Topshelf Records and Bridge Nine Records but you don’t have to wait until then to hear it. Stream the entire thing here.
Octaves formed in a warehouse in West Baltimore in the Fall of 2008, and released their B9 debut Which Way The Wind Blows in April 2013. The band has since toured the USA with the likes of HORSE the Band, Shai Hulud, and countless others in support of this release. These two new EP tracks mark the first new music since their debut, with more to come soon.
Las Vegas, NV’s Caravels follow up their pensive 2013 full-length, Lacuna, with two more tracks of earthy, enveloping post-hardcore, all effects pedals and clouded brooding. Their two songs roll along tense faultlines with shouted lyrics that exert impossibly firm control over its metaphorical imagery and personality deconstructions. The band will be premiering these shortly before the release in January. The band has toured and played shows with the likes of Touche Amore, Seahaven, The Jazz June, and Drug Church.
