Brackish will be releasing a picture disc record titled Coming Down over at Black Numbers this Friday, July 7th, 2017. The 7-inch is available for pre-order through Black Numbers. See below to listen to the new material and to read a statement written by Connor Byrne (Guitarist and lead vocals) about the release.
"Coming Down is very special to us. Working with Andy Clarke and Tom May on these songs at Retro City Studios in Philadelphia was an incredibly positive experience and the album that come to be in result matches that. With the passing of our friend Chris Baranowski, the album commemorates the good times we had together and unique style he had on guitar. I'll always treasure the instrumental ending of the title track 'Coming Down.' Growing up together, we shared a love for the post-hardcore stylings of the Japanese band Envy and the screamo bands of that era. The wall of noise that occurs at the end of 'Coming Down' was something we were elated to finally do for ourselves after years of dreaming ourselves into that scenario as teenagers. With Andy Clarke at the board, Chris and I felt like kids in a candy shop creating huge delay noises, buzzing synths, and furious guitar strums. I'm genuinely so appreciative that memory is recorded."
