Louisville’s XERXES are streaming “Exit 123″, coming from their new album “Collision Blonde”, to be released on October 21st through No Sleep Records.
Premiered over at BrooklynVegan.
Vocalist Calvin Philley commented:
I cooked at a restaurant in southern Indiana about 50 hours a week for about a year leading up to the recording of collision blonde. I got fired during the recording process but that’s a different story. Exit 123 is the first exit after you cross the bridge over the ohio river from Louisville to New Albany on I-64 west and the route I took to work. I have severe anxiety about driving and it only gets worse as things pile up in my life with girls, money, work and anything else. Once I just panic attacked all the way to work, thought I was dying and all that. I fantisized about running through the guardrail in my shitty Chevy SUV. That’s it. I got myself fired in April and haven’t been back to Indiana since.
