Storming The Beaches With Logos In Hand
*'BAILIWICK, RUFUSED' ALBUM RELEASE TOUR
Celebrating the release of their second full-length album, 'Bailiwick, Refused', STBWLIH launch out on a full US tour starting in August 2017 which brings them to 7th Circle in Denver on September 13th. Luke Carr, Caitlin Brothers and Nathan Smerage will be performing as a guitar, harp and bass trio, unfolding dark, melodic motifs through thick vocal harmonies and bountiful rhythmic textures.
Southwick Howls (2015), the groups first album, introduced a narrative about an alternate reality that challenges the past 500+ years of historical events that have shaped the Western world, including the colonization of North America. Diving deeper into this world, 'Bailiwick, Refused' tells the story of Dessa, a young girl who grows up in a heavily politicized family in the crumbling city of Southwick. The new album follows her through her continual callings to leave; her childhood, her family, her time as a resistance fighter in the desolate Mudfields, her partner, and her child, all in the pursuit of a destiny to set free something, or someone, sacred.
*Simulators are a post-punk band from Denver, Colorado, composed of Bryon Parker (baritone guitar and vocals), and Brian Polk (drums and vocals) and formed in 2016. Their music genre has been classified as post-punk but they describe themselves as a «dynamic duo.»
*Expressive melodies, compelling chord progressions, odd time signatures, and an absence of the human voice.
