Published Dec 06, 2013King Cobb Steelie haven't released an album in close to a decade, instead focusing on revisiting their back catalogue. Now, the Ontario ensemble have made a rather sudden return in the form of a new four-track EP, due out on December 12 through Static Clang Records.
The digital-only EP is called Goodbye Arcadia. It contains just three songs, plus a remix by the Straggler, although the whole thing clocks in at a fairly substantial 20 minutes, with the title track lasting more than eight minutes. The cover art is above.
It was laid down at Revolution Recording with Joe Dunphy and Stephen Koszler, with mixing handled by Sean Pearson. The six-piece band were joined in the studio by a couple of noteworthy collaborators, as Mike Haliechuk of Fucked Up played guitar on the title track and Nathan Lawr of Minotaurs added piano and vocals to "Le Monde Rien."
To hear what it all sounds like, King Cobb Steelie are streaming the entire thing here on Exclaim.ca. You can listen to the EP below.
King Cobb Steelie will celebrate the release with a Toronto gig at the Piston on December 12. The bill that night also feature Laura Barrett and Bile Sister.
