Orange County, New York-based trio Laces Out has been writing steadily throughout the pandemic, cranking out angular ‘90s-influenced post-hardcore. After making their comeback in July with the noisy and turbulent “Roger Podacter” EP, the group is ready to unleash their full-length debut album, “Here at the Ashram”, a collection of nine juicy tunes picking up where the short and sweet EP left off.
Prior to forming Laces Out, drummer Steve Delucia and guitarist Ed Ciarfella had played together in various projects for nearly twenty years, including Warwick-based post-punk quintet Pigeon of which bassist Ray Wasnieski was also a member. As with all the band’s previous output, “Here at the Ashram” was engineered and mixed by Jeff Rendano at Boomstick Recording, Monroe, mastered by Eric Castillo, and completed with artwork by Joe Kelley.
Nefarious Industries will release “Here at the Ashram” on limited edition Opaque Red vinyl and all digital platforms on November 18th, 2022.
With “Kick and Scream”, the first single and opening track from “Here at the Ashram”, Ed Ciarfella writes: “‘Kick and Scream’ was a blast to write with these dudes; definitely one of my favorites to play. Some songs you take months to put together, but every once in a while, we crank one out in an hour or so. This is one of those songs. Love the riffs and from start to finish it’s got everything seems to hit just right! Enjoy”!
