Celebrating the 8th year of their existence, San Francisco post rock act COMMISSURE are back with a new, masterful, emotionally rich record. The band has recently joined the ranks of California label Conditions Records (HIDES, NO LIMBS, SUPER UNISON) and will be releasing their new EP titled ‘Sketchbooks + Road Maps’ both digitally and on cassette on June 3rd. Clocking in at 12 minutes, these two new songs are a beautiful example of the evolution of the band over the years and a proof that they are fully capable of conjuring great amazement. Pre-order a physical copy here and taste a sneak peek below.

Commissure started as a solo project in 2006 in San Francisco, and turned into a full band by the end of 2008. The two track “Sketchbooks + Road Maps” will be the first EP released following two full-lengths. These songs are named after an amphibian with feelings and a personal friend who showed us some valuable recipes during hard times. Also, it’s our first time having trumpets & keys. We’ll be touring the West Coast in support of this release as well as playing various shows throughout California through the end of the year.
