The day is finally here… Defeater’s double LP opus/masterpiece, Empty Days & Sleepless Nights, is officially available in stores and online today. The press is calling it “absolutely amazing” (Rock Sound) and “brilliantly conceived” (Decoy Music). We think so, too.
The band got back last night from their UK/Euro tour with Carpathian, and show reviews sang Defeater’s praise – “there isn’t a soul in the room leaving without their neck hairs raised to the rafters” (Platform UK). This Thursday, Defeater makes their return to the stage in Cambridge, MA at the Middle East for their record release show with support from The Carrier, Disappearer, Dreamtigers and The First Annual. Tickets for the show are still available
. Additionally, Defeater will play three showcases in Austin, TX at SXSW before they pack up again and head to Australia in March and April. More North American tour dates will be coming soon, too, so nearly everyone in the world will get to see one of the “top 5 best acts I’ve ever seen (Left Lion UK) and hear new songs off of Empty Days & Sleepless Nights. You can pick up a copy of ED&SN at your favorite local record store or online in the B9Store
and other various retailers NOW! We're still shipping pre-orders so if you haven't gotten yours yet, there's a good chance it's in the hands of our mailorder dude RIGHT NOW.
Also available today is Agnostic Front’s new 7inch titled That’s Life, which is a precursor to their upcoming album, My Life My Way.
