Russian Blood out today.

Tuesday, May 29th, 2012

If you are a member of the press, go here.

From the RIBS alerts email list:

There are a lot of things bands say in moments like this: We’re ‘super excited’ for our new record. This really represents a new direction for us. We’d love it if you share it with your friends.

We could say all of those things now–they’re all true. But there’s a bigger story behind Russian Blood than four guys trying to make a bedroom sound like a stadium. And the truth is, that story hasn’t been fully written yet.

For now, just know that this EP was self-produced (as with all of our records), and we have no PR team, no label, no manager. What we do have is you guys. But while the sharing and record sales allow us to continue to make music and tour, right now all we really ask is that you listen to this EP and decide for yourself what you want to do about it.

Listen and get it from:

The band
iTunes
Amazon MP3
(And if you’re in New England, head to your local Newbury Comics to pick up a copy.)

Praise for Russian Blood:

“Thoroughly DIY … but it carries itself like a really big deal. There are cement-grinding atmospherics out of Trent Reznor’s playbook and canyon banshee wails echoed from long-lost U2 anthems.” – The Boston Globe

“Alarms might be the best song to come out of Boston in 2012.” – Michael Marotta, WFNX

“Primed for explosion … the entire record is a potent post-modern mix of layered riffs, space-shot hooks, and dizzying atmospheric sounds.” – The Boston Phoenix

“OMFG THE NEW @RIBStheband ALBUM COMES OUT IN A FEW DAYS :DD” – some person on the internet
We’ll see you on the road soon.

Keith, Chris, Blake, and Justin

Printed on super soft, ultra comfortable Poly-Cotton blend heather black American Apparel 50/50 shirts. Get them here.

About the design:

This shirt is a visual rendering of “Brains Out.” With the help of IBUILDWORLDS (of British Brains artwork fame), we built a program that turns music into a visual using the frequency and amplitude of a sound file. We ran the audio for the song through a wireframe skull and this design is the result.
