Published May 12, 2015Next week, Bay Area act Ceremony will return with The L-Shaped Man, an album that sees them further evolve from their hardcore beginnings with a full LP icy post-punk. Rather than make you wait, however, you can stream the full thing now.
The 11-track LP is essentially a pure Joy Division homage, complete with wiry guitar leads and pounding post-punk rhythms. The album can be streamed in full (save for two bonus tracks) below courtesy of KEXP.
In addition to sharing the album, the band have unveiled a hefty chunk of tour dates. These include Canadian stops at Montreal's La Sala Rossa and Toronto's The Garrison.
