We are incredibly stoked to premiere a brand new song “Crevice / Crevasse” from Southeastern Pennsylvania’s progressive three-piece, Carved Up as the band prepares to drop new album, Matador, via Crowquill Records this Fall.
We’ve had the pleasure of catching Carved Up live on several occasions witnessing the many amalgamations the band has transcended through including instrumental sets and others featuring a stand-alone vocalist. We can fully verify the group’s ability to reign down with countless layers of distorted riffs, falling somewhere on the musical spectrum between Botch and Russian Circles. Currently, Carved Up is back to its three-piece roots with TJ Schilling and Nick Norvilas swapping bass and guitar duties effortlessly and both executing vocals on top of Josh Cooper‘s hard-driving drum work.
The record was recorded and mixed at Skylight Studio by Vince Ratti (Circa Survive, Title Fight, Turmoil) with additional recording by Will Yip, Brad Wallace, Sam Pinola, and John Fachet, Matador also sees guest contributions of cello, violin, and other noise by Greg Bortnichak and Erin Murphy of Teach Me Equals.
Pre-order Matador now at Crowquill Records:
