Miss The Stars blog has premiered the last 3 unreleased tracks from the new highly anticipated split between 5 amazing screamo bands YOTSUYA KAIDAN (Ukraine), UK’s THISISMENOTTHINKINGOFYOU and HEALING POWERS, Edmonton, Canada’s I HATE SEX and Japanese band GHOSTLATE! The record comes out via Rubaiyat Records and Samegrey Records, and is a killer! There’s an admirable level of refinement to many modern screamo bands, and the scene feels brilliantly alive at the moment. This new contribution is both ominous and puzzling, leading the listeners to shared euphoric experience that made some good memories come back, but suddenly dissolves into a dazed silence. 10 minutes is too little.
