We're Doomed - 'How to Destroy Something Beautiful' (EP Stream)
By Gregory AdamsHalifax three-piece We're Doomed mixed post-hardcore with prog and melodic rock on their 2011 EP Like a Machine, and the group are getting set to do it again with their impending follow-up, the similarly bite-sized How to Destroy Something Beautiful. The six-song set arrives October 2, but you can preview the mini-release in full now courtesy of Exclaim!

The band enlisted Matt Bayles to mix the EP at his Red Room Studio in Seattle, with Jon Epworth producing, and according to a press release, it features "heavy riffs, syncopated rhythms, dynamic vocals, and a general disregard for the genre barriers between rock, pop and metal."

You can check out the juxtaposition between twinkling rock anthems like "White and Blue" and the mathy, fretboard-annihilating runs and sung-screamed lyrics that fuel the title track for further proof.

Along with the new EP, We're Doomed will also be playing several East Coast dates. You can see the complete schedule below.

it's not very often I get thru all the tracks from a local act but this one I did. Unfortunately I'm not a fan of EP's. Wish this was a full length.

The actual EP itself was recorded @ Home, and was mixed by Bayles @ his Seattle studio.
