LACES OUT: Nefarious Industries To Release Eponymous Debut EP By Upstate New York Trio In July

Nefarious Industries announces the July release of the eponymous debut EP from upstate New York-based trio LACES OUT, featuring alumni of former Nefarious act, Pigeon.

LACES OUT​ sounds like licking dirt with tiny granules of sugar scattered throughout. Hailing from Orange County, New York, the band features members of Warwick-based post-punk quintet Pigeon, as well as acts Mandark, Veneer, and others. Drummer Steve Delucia and guitarist Ed Ciarfella have been playing together in various projects for nearly fourteen years. Longtime friend and local scene veteran Ray Wasnieski joined the duo in Pigeon, and continued onward with them in LACES OUT.

Dynamics and angular progression drive their sound, which is heavily influenced by noise from the ‘90s. Listeners can expect trace elements of Fugazi, Unwound, At The Drive In, Jesus Lizard, Pissed Jeans, BVS, Young Widows, Drive Like Jehu, and Nirvana from their songs.

LACES OUT offers of their debut EP, “We decided to write five songs in order without scratching one track. In fact, it was as if we finished song one and went right on to write songs two through five; the order in which you hear the music is the order we wrote it in. This was our challenge to ourselves as writers: could we manifest an EP song by song and be happy with the outcome? The answer was ‘yes,’ and more so than other projects, in which we spent countless practices scratching and rewriting. It was super fun writing these songs together this way, and we hope this is heard when listening to it.”

Laces Out was recorded live at Boom Stick Recording in Monroe, New York, engineered by Jeff Rendano, produced by Rendano and the band, mastered at Nada Studios by Eric Costello, and finished with artwork by Joe Hallmark. Nefarious Industries will issue the EP on July 28th, on all digital platforms as well as a special edition 7” limited to 50 copies. Stand by for audio samples and preorders to be issued in the coming days.

Laces Out Track Listing:
1. Will To Become
2. Bugs
3. Fortunes
4. Kritzinger’s Warning
5. Under The Cover

LACES OUT has been playing out regionally on a regular basis, including shows with labelmates Risk Relay. They’ll be continuing this activity throughout the rest of the year, and will be working on some short runs later in 2017, including some shows with labelmates Dying Whale. The band has already commenced work on new recordings for release in 2018.

LACES OUT:
Steve DeLucia – Drums
Ray Wasnieski – Bass
Ed Ciarfella – Guitar/Vox

PIGEON: Everything is local – Interview by Idioteq

“The first day of a new week is a perfect time to play a tune from PIGEON, very nice post punk / post hardcore band from Warwick, New York. All the fans of FUGAZI should definitely check it out. While they have likely drawn the most acclaim from the 90s post hardcore scene, their music brings angry, yet melodic overtone. Taste it below.”
