Zebulon Pike and the fastidious art of kicking ass
Hardcore Crayons' "Sarcasmic" video comes out of hiding
The veteran Minneapolis rock trio Self-Evident celebrate the release of their adventurous sixth album, We Built A Fortress On Short Notice, with a show tonight at the Triple Rock along with fellow raucous Twin City bands Zebulon Pike (with Self-Evident bassist Tom Berg doing double-duty) and Hardcore Crayons.
Self-Evident just returned from Japan where they headlined the Summer Meeting Festival in Tokyo, and will no doubt be revved up and ready to share their spirited new songs with their hometown fans. They recorded Fortress in February with engineer Carl Amburn, who has worked with the band for years, honing their on point rhythms and riffs that have hints of the raw intensity of Fugazi or Quicksand. But there is certainly a more restrained, melodic nature to these new songs as well, which adds an impassioned tension to their combustible sound.
We Built A Fortress On Short Notice is being put out by Doubleplusgood Records, and in addition to being sold at tonight's Triple Rock show, it will also be available on CD and LP at area record stores on Tuesday, August 7, as well as digitally on iTunes (which will include three bonus tracks) and other online digital outlets.
Self-Evident also landed a coveted opening slot for the hotly anticipated Archers Of Loaf show at the 400 Bar on Sunday, August 26. The band will then head off on a three week U.S. tour beginning in September, with a forthcoming European tour planned for early 2013.
