Capping off a triumphant year of live shows worldwide and the highly anticipated in • ter a • li • a (Rise Records), AT THE DRIVE-IN In has yet another surprise in store for fans: available exclusively for Record Store Day’s Black Friday, the band will be releasing ‘Diamanté’ – a 3-song EP on 10-inch vinyl via Rise Records, out November 24th. Produced by Omar Rodriguez-Lopez and mixed by Johann Scheerer, the EP was recorded at Clouds Hill Studio in Hamburg, Germany in the summer of 2017.
Ahead of the EP’s release, the band offers a cryptic message behind ‘Diamanté’:
“How do you weaponize the insatiable thirst for life among vultures? How do you deprogram the coroner dissecting hiatus ? What light beckons you from the sewers of suggestion? Is your instinct extinct ? Or does it hide in the flash burn of counterfeit automatons? 5 boys with guilty slingshots swaying to the Midwitch Sound. Blinded by the DIAMANTÉ”.
The track list for Diamanté is:
Despondent at High Noon
