"The Philistines' sound is both familiar and elusive, vintage but eclectic." -- The Kansas City Star
Kansas City sextet The Philistines premiere a new track from their forthcoming full length debut today via Northern Transmissions. The site's featured Song of The Day, "Stygia" is available to hear and share HERE. (Direct Soundcloud.)
The Philistines previously shared the song "A Twitch of the Death Nerve", which is available to hear and share on Soundcloud HERE.
With a barrage of spaced-out, razor-sharp guitars, a grooving rhythmic onslaught, and melodic keyboard tapestries, The Philistines take vintage ideas and form them into modern psychedelic sonic movements.
The six-piece group has made a name for itself with forceful, engaging live shows that match its provocative, bombastic rock sound. Since The Philistines' inception in late 2013, they have become one of Kansas City's most recognized bands, supporting prominent touring acts, playing prestigious music festivals (including Middle of the Map Fest, Crossroads Music Fest, and Alejandro Escovedo's SXSW Day Party), and receiving a healthy amount of accolades in the local media, all before releasing their first album.
In 2015, the band began touring throughout the Midwest and working on its debut LP with engineer/producer Paul Malinowski (of Shiner) at Massive Sound Studios. The highly anticipated album, The Backbone of Night, will be released on The Record Machine on May 27th, 2016.
