Abandon the Raft are going to play their first show of the year on Tuesday April 12 @ Soda Bar in San Diego, CA. Also lined up to play are Silent Lune and Divided By Design. More details here.
I'm sure they'll be showcasing their new set as well as their new sounds, which you can check out on their facebook. They also released an updated version of their track, House of Gold, which can be downloaded from there as well. This is the title track from the EP they released last year. It still carries with it the same new-wave intro and steady clusters of electornica, but the new version extends for almost an additional two minutes. A new phrase appears where it would have originally ended with the inclusion of some dance beat breakdowns and a tight guitar lead. The instrumentals also sound a bit crispier with some new echoed vibes. Should sound amazing at the show.
