Published May 23, 2008Following their much-loved, Exclaim!-approved full-length Hammer of the Gods, Bottomless Pit have prepared a new EP for your listening pleasure. The four-track release, titled Congress, by the trio of post-Silkworm players will hit the internet digitally on June 1 via Comedy Minus One (the same label that recently re-released all those long-out-of-print Silkworm albums). A 12-inch (CD included) will follow in mid-July and is also available for pre-order through Comedy Minus One.
In other Bottomless Pit news, the band will be taking their show on the road with several live dates set for this summer, including Montreal on July 13 and Toronto July 14. Keeping them company on several of the dates will be the Kadane Brothers, those guys behind Bedhead/New Year.
