Anchoress Announce New LP, Premiere "Your Career Is Over" Video
Published Aug 16, 2016Vancouver post-hardcore unit Anchoress have announced plans for a new album, and Exclaim! has got your first taste of the upcoming album. Titled Anchoress Is Ruining My Life, the new record is due out on October 4.
It marks the band's third full-length offering and was recorded at Rain City Recorders in their hometown with Jesse Gander (White Lung, Japandroids).
Across the 10 new songs, the band look to shed the expectations associated with the post-harcore and punk tags they've worn proudly until now. Branching out in dynamic directions, Anchoress explore everything from "the vapid hole of social media, police brutality, chronic illness, and life as an independent band in the modern age" on the upcoming LP. The tracks range from introspective and epic ("Live on the Air") to shoegaze and drone-influenced ("All Colours").
They're still loud as hell, though, as proven with the ferocious and somewhat familiar punk-driven lead single "Your Career Is Over." You can hear the first sample of things to come by giving that very song a spin down below in its brand new accompanying video clip. Just scroll past the Achoress Is Ruining My Life tracklisting and hit play to give it a watch.
