Loma Prieta return from hiatus with new EP

Loma Prieta have enjoyed a long slumber since the 2015 release of their acclaimed LP "Self Portrait", but the band is now rousing, ready to unleash a whole new fury upon the world. The West Coast four-piece has announced a forthcoming two-song EP, titled "Continuum b/w Fate", and have shared its side A track. More level-headed yet also eclectic than ever before, Loma Prieta have all but lost their gift for melding genres across time and space within a single song.

"Continuum b/w Fate,” due out in January 2020, is a new two-song single recorded by engineer Jack Shirley (Deafheaven, Oathbreaker). The a-side "Continuum" is a powerful dirge that pokes holes in the perpetual motion and unachievable expectations of society. The track ruminates as much as it rages.  The b-side, “Fate,” basks in a Pixies-esque lightness to veil the ten-ton weight of its subject matter, only to buckle beneath a cloak of chaos. Built around the lyrics "Drugs and God the same distractions / Lay on the dirty floor and stare at the ceiling, like it was a planetarium dome,” the track is primo Prieta, bringing screamo into emotionally potent and musically complex territories.

Deathwish Inc. will release the "Continuum b/w Fate" EP on January 10, 2020. Pre-order a copy of your own here.
