Published Nov 06, 2012Toronto garage rock rabble-rousers Invasions recently unleashed their video for "666" and promised that their debut album, Cult of the Half Moon, would be close behind. Sure enough, the album is out today (November 6) and is now available to stream in full.
Recorded with Alex Bonenfant and mastered by Jon Drew, the rowdy nine-song collection is named after the Washington Irving story "Rip Van Winkle." While most of the album isn't quite as energetic as "666," you'll find no shortage of jagged guitars and pummelling garage grit.
The band said in a statement, "Thematically, the album focus is around the concept of a half fulfilled existence where death and life amalgamate together in everything."
Invasions will launch the disc with a pair of shows, first at Sneaky Dee's in Toronto on November 16, and then at Divan Orange in Montreal on November 30. Until then, listen to the album below.
