Published Jan 12, 2009L.A.'s tropical freak punks Abe Vigoda will soon kick-start their 2009 by way of a new five-track EP. On February 17, the tropical-loving quartet will drop Reviver, a release that finds the band "claiming new, darker musical territory" with a "more experimental direction," according to an online statement.
Like the group's hotly tipped Skeleton LP, this release will come courtesy of Post Present Medium (the imprint run by No Age's Dean Spunt), which will press this release on both ten-inch and CD. Among Reviver's five tracks, you'll find "Don't Lie," a song that's made frequent live appearances, a cover of Wild Heart" by Stevie Nicks and a demo of the Skeleton track "Endless Sleeper."
Abe Vigoda are reportedly getting ready to kick off another North American tour and are expected to announce their confirmed tour stops shortly. In the meantime, here's the tracklisting for Reviver:
1. "Don't Lie"
3. "Endless Sleeper"
4. "Wild Heart"
5. "The Reaper"
