HUMOURS Release Track From The Onanist EP At Selective Memory Mag; Northwest Tour Dates Underway

As The Eolian Empire prepares for HUMOURS‘ debut, The Onanist, to see release next week, and the band takes their tunes to the Northwestern US, Selective Memory Mag has premiered the impending EP, with “Happy Birthday, Alex Tucker.”

The angle on The Onanist is Drive Like King Crimson; HUMOURS deploying post-hardcore prog, yet less mathy math rock, wherein the songs are still songs not wackoff seshes. The second of the four jacked tracks on the EP becomes part of the public domain, with Selective Memory issuing on the song itself, “‘Happy Birthday, Alex Tucker’ is a mandala of weird sounds swirling around with spontaneous order at the threshold that do not really fit comfortably in any genre. Taking jazz-like construction to their rock and burning the candle on both the punk side and the krautrock side, this group successfully refines a style that feels innovate, fresh and uniquely their own, even if you get thoughts of King Crimson, Big Black and June of 44 simultaneously pouring out of your mind.”

Set aside a bit of alone time to HUMOURS’ “Happy Birthday, Alex Tucker” RIGHT HEREThe Onanist is available for preorder digitally and in a limited run cassette with download card via the Eolian Empire HERE.

HUMOURS‘ joyride through the Northwestern parts of the country is now underway, having raged Spokane last night, with Coeur D’Alene, Seattle and Olympia on the list for tonight and the weekend. Additional upcoming tour dates are pending.
