Escapist Records is pleased to announce the forthcoming split 7”/Digital EP release from PLACEHOLDER and SLEEPING WEATHER. In addition to the new tracks, each artist will contribute a digital-only cover song.

Pennsylvania’s Placeholder continue to build on an impressive catalog which already includes various split and EP recordings and their widely praised full-length release I Don’t Need Forgiveness, which was released last year via Black Numbers Records.  Placeholder’s side of the split was self-recorded, mixed by Vince Ratti (Circa Survive, Title Fight) and mastered by Azimuth Studios (Make Do And Mend, Balance & Composure).

Sleeping Weather, hailing from Colorado, burst onto the scene with a self-released EP in 2012 and saw their debut full-length, I Was Just On My Way Out, released on Suburban Home Records earlier this year.  Sleeping Weather completed the recording, mixing and mastering of their contributions at Black in Bluhm Studios (Frank Turner, Teenage Bottlerocket, Lemuria) with Christopher Fogal.

The split 7” will be available on three different color-ways as well as through all major digital retailers and streaming services. A late fall release is tentatively planned for the release.

Brooklyn Vegan is currently streaming  Placeholder’s song “Weird Place” from the upcoming release.
