LA’s Tombstones In Their Eyes present ‘Maybe Someday’ album
"Sounds like slow codeine-laden bliss or drug-numbing love translated into sonic form. It’s astoundingly fresh, slow core perfectly-balanced with alternative rock" – Big Takeover Magazine
"A wall-trembling, skin-crawling, psychedelic-drenched, shoegaze number... Together, they bottle up a raging, Midwestern storm and unleash its fury" – The Revue "Wistful and otherworldly vocals.. a druggy and melancholic trip but counterbalanced with a soaring and hopeful chorus. A worthy endeavour" – Overblown Magazine “Music so fresh, so expertly produced and melodically sound that it literally takes your breath away after one listen… utterly addictive” – Primal Music
"Sky scrapping yet graceful, muscular yet intelligent... Masters of such brilliantly conflicted music and over a series of releases have carved their names above the cavernous musical maw that few are brave enough to follow them into" – Dancing About Architecture
This album was recorded at L.A.’s Kitten Robot Studio with Paul Roessler (Nina Hagen, The Deadbeats, The Screamers, 45 Grave), The cover artwork was created by Trevor Tipton, well know for his work with The Black Angels, Primal Scream and Levitation Festival, among others.
Tombstones create walls of sound that are simultaneously sonorous and hazy. These are cavernous, stoner lullabies that are wrapped in dark shoegazing dreamscapes and descend into post-rock soundscapes.
'Maybe Someday' is the first long-play from Tombstones In Their Eyes since their debut release 'Sleep Forever' (2015). This album comes on the heels of several critically acclaimed releases: their 'Nothing New' EP, 'Shutting Down' single and ‘Fear’ EP. Earlier they also released their huge sounding ‘Bad Clouds’ EP (2016).
"Maybe Someday is a magic song! It came together quickly and I fell in love with the demo. Was scared to re-record it in the studio, so we were very careful not to mess with the magic. Maybe Someday says it all, as far as the theme of the song goes. It's about yearning to break out of the self-imposed chains but knowing that it will probably never happen. So sad, really," says John Treanor.
"This set of songs still carries a bit of the sadness and depression that permeated some of our earlier stuff, but I was definitely in a better place this time around (although you may not be able to tell by the lyrics). Less depression and catharsis, more joy. These songs do not all fit into one neat box. We don’t use the same sounds on each song and the songs reflect the scope of what we do."
The 'Maybe Someday' album is available on limited edition CD through Somewherecold Records. Digitally, it will be available across platforms such as iTunes and Spotify, but can also be ordered via Bandcamp.
