Published Feb 06, 2012West Coast unit Bend Sinister have yet to release a full-length follow-up to 2008's Stories of Brothers, Tales of Lovers, but at least the band have some new tunes to deliver to their devoted next month, via their upcoming five-song EP On My Mind.
The mini-platter arrives March 6 through File Under: Music. Described as coming "from a band that clearly knows that their capabilities as players and songwriters are limitless," the record apparently touts a sound that seamlessly bounces from prog rock to pop anthems, according to the press release. The collection was captured by Shawn Cole (You Say Party, Yukon Blonde) at Vancouver studios Fader Master and Mushroom, and you can check out the opening number "Give It a Rest" down below.
Though a new LP has yet to be properly announced, the press sheet hints that the EP "acts as a teaser for more great things to come."
While the studio news is no doubt welcomed, Bend Sinister also just unveiled an upcoming Canadian tour schedule, which has them heading out from BC to Quebec and back again. You can see the details of the March trip down below.
