Published Oct 21, 2013Toronto-based garage rock quintet Invasions released their debut LP, Cult of the Half Moon, back in 2012. But a little over a year later, the band are back with a re-invigorated "surf western"-inspired sound. See if their stylistic transformation paid off by listening to their self-titled sophomore set in full ahead of its October 25 release.
Picking up where their Libertines-esque debut left off, Invasions finds the band delivering Dire Straits riffing ("Cursed Comfort"), spastic surf rock ("Born on a Wave"), and Bob Dylan-meets-Johnny Marr songwriting ("Alive [Loving Life]").
Hear for yourself by listening to the eight-track LP in the player below. And if you feel so inclined, check out the band this fall as they tour in support of the album through Ontario and Quebec.
