Published Nov 29, 2016As Plants and Animals get all road warrior with Half Moon Run, the band have followed up their Waltzed in from the Rumbling with a surprise mini-release.
The new EP is called Passed Out from the Waltzing (B-Sides), and as you could likely guess from that title, it packages together a series of B-sides from Plants and Animals' Waltzed album, which arrived earlier this year.
In a statement to Exclaim!, the band's Matthew Woodley had this to say about the new EP:
These are diamonds as much as roughs. "Green Eyes" was on the LP until the last minute. It spilled out fast when we first played it, this big catharsis, and was much harder to put away. "The Moon Lay Down" changed shape a dozen times over three years until we lost track of it. Now all of these nuances pop out that weren't there before. They sprouted on the song while it sat in the storage closet. Good one for headphones.
"At Least Until the End of Time" is a cosmic whisper with a Québécois accent. "Newfoundland" was born during a soundcheck in a big, empty arena while a snowstorm outside kept flickering the lights off and on. "Cowboy" is what happens when you read your old diary thinking you'll be embarrassed and finding yourself with a smile. Take the key.
The EP is officially out digitally tomorrow (November 30) via Secret City Records, but you can get it on the action early via an exclusive stream of the release at the bottom of the page.
