WE BARBARIANS TO RELEASE ‘HEADSPACE’ EP ON DINE ALONE RECORDS

we_barbarians_menuTORONTO, ON (August 29, 2011): Dine Alone Records is set to release the new EP from Brooklyn-via-Long Beach trio WE BARBARIANS. The epic and propulsive five-song collection titled Headspace will initially be released digitally starting August 30 before a physical street date, which will be announced shortly. In support of the digital release WE BARBARIANS will be hitting the road for a late summer tour with ANR including two Canadian dates.

webarbarians2011-photo1d‘Headspace’, recorded after the band relocated from Long Beach, CA to Brooklyn, NY, is a bold step forward in WE BARBARIANS songwriting with its rich vocals, soaring guitar lines and pounding rhythms.  Said vocalist/guitarist Dave Quon, "We all grew up in California and have always been drawn to the idea of living on the opposite coast. For a few reasons, it just felt like the appropriate time to leave California and go east for a change of pace. As a band, we draw a lot of inspiration from where we are based. Every time we have toured through New York, we felt momentum and a strong sense of culture that we really admired. So, we decided to move to Brooklyn to see how it would affect our lives and mindset as a band. A few months into our move, it’s interesting to experience first hand how choosing to put yourself in a different environment really does effect the art you produce and how you think about it.” Headspace is the first fruits of all that labor.

Headspace includes a cover of the David Byrne/Brian Eno song “Strange Overtones,” On the decision to tackle the Byrne/Eno song, Quon stated, "While religiously listening to Everything That Happens Will Happen Today, we were drawn to the rhythms and melodies on the album. “Strange Overtones” was a stand out track and struck a certain chord with us. During our writing process, the song continued to inspire us so it seemed fitting to try and tackle it. The idea of life experience, change, and how getting old add this interesting overtone to how you look at things.”
