Post-Punk Supergroup Able Baker Fox (Small Brown Bike, The Casket Lottery) Release Visions, The Long-Awaited Followup To 2008’s Debut LP
- Visions is out now on No Sleep Records
- Listen to Voices on Spotify
- Recorded by Jawbox’s J. Robbins (Dismemberment Plan, Mewithout You)
Nearly 10 years after the release of their debut album, post-hardcore/punk super group Able Baker Fox have finally gotten back on the horse. Visions, the outfit’s long-awaited follow up to their 2008 debut Voices, is out today via No Sleep Records.
Since 2008, Able Baker Fox have been almost completely mum, barring a reunion performance at 2014’s Fest. That same year, Small Brown Bike and The Casket Lottery released a collaborative 12″ foreshadowing the future of their project. Visions picks up right where Able Baker Fox left off, following a long tradition of Midwestern/East Coast-tinged post-hardcore that wouldn’t have been out of place alongside Jade Tree’s early ’00-era roster. Just like many of their predecessors, the four-piece outfit tapped the legendary J. Robbins (Hey Mercedes, Dismemberment Plan, MewithoutYou, Jets to Brazil) to record their much-anticipated release in a four-day, marathon session at The Mapgpie Cage Recording Studio in Baltimore, Maryland.
Speaking to AlternativePress about the album’s second single “Painted Shell,” Nathan Ellis said, “This song was born in a haunted attic of home built during the early 1800’s on a farm at the outskirts of Marshall, MI. It’s not about that at all, but I think it’s interesting.”
To support the release of their new album, which is available via No Sleep Records in the USA and Arctic Rodeo in Europe, the band have planned a number of upcoming tour dates including 2017’s Fest in Gainseville, FL and Crucialfest in Salt Lake City, UT.
