Published Oct 07, 2013Toronto-based garage rockers Invasions may have released their debut LP, Cult of the Half Moon, only a year ago, but the hard-rocking five-piece have already done a stylistic 180, developing a more "surf western"-inspired sound for their upcoming LP. Thankfully, fans won't have to wait long to find out exactly what that sounds like, as their self-titled sophomore effort will arrive October 25.
The album was recorded by the quintet in their multi-purpose rehearsal space/studio and mastered by Jon Drew (Tokyo Police Club, Fucked Up). According to a press release, working in their own private area "allowed for meticulous attention to detail; capturing unique tones…while focusing on maintaining a live energetic vibe" that the band have come to be known for.
