Toronto-based alternative rock band Selfish Things have announced their EP Vertical Love, out 16th March. After a string of successful single releases, earning notable positions on playlists such as New Noise on Spotify, this will be the band’s first full body of music for fans since they started in 2015. Fans can pre-order the EP here.
Co-produced by James Paul Wisner (Paramore, Dashboard Confessional) and lead singer-songwriter, Alex Biro, Vertical Love serves as Biro’s full transition from singer-songwriter to an all-out alternative rock band with Selfish Things.
“‘Vertical Love’ came into being after what was one of the most tumultuous periods of my life. It’s a body of work that’s representative of a time when I was struggling to eliminate my nihilistic outlook and replace it with something that was innately more sustainable and emotionally fruitful. I’ve always had a tendency to contemplate whether or not we choose the path we walk, or whether god / the universe / deity has placed us on a path that we have no control over. Looking back on it now, I think all of these songs are indicative of my struggle for control over the things I can’t understand or make sense of. The pain and suffering that come with sentience are necessary as a means of quantifying the depth of our experiences as living beings.” explains Biro.
Vertical Love features 6 tracks that will be released independently in the US and via A Wolf At Your Door Records (Deaf Havana, Lower Than Atlantis, Mallory Knox) in the UK & Europe. Within the 6 tracks, singles “8147 Mulholland Terrace” and “1435” will be packaged within the EP. In addition to the EP announcement, Alternative Press recently debuted the video for “1435”, and the video can be watched by clicking below or you can stream the sing HERE.
In addition to the video and new EP, the band is excited to embark on their first North American tour, as official support for Los Angeles-based act, Layne. The 29 date tour is the much anticipated follow up to their successful run opening for Simple Plan in Canada late 2017.
“We’re really looking forward to spending some time in parts of America we’ve never seen individually, or as a band,” notes Biro. “I’m looking forward to hanging with my best friends on the road, eating some good southern food and making memories."
Vertical Love is out 16th March via A Wolf At Your Door Records.
The world of electronic industrial music has been saddened to learn of the sudden recent death of
Canadian keyboard player and programmer Jeremy Inkel due to complications arising from an asthma condition. He was only 34 years old. Best known for his involvement in the most recent albums by
the veteran act Front Line Assembly, he was also the co-founder of Left Spine Down (LSD) and
produced tracks for various other well known musicians.
Based in Vancouver, he was welcomed into Front Line Assembly in 2005, co-writing and producing
the album ‘Artificial Soldier’ that was released the following year. He also toured with the band,
including festival appearances at the likes of Mera Luna, Summer Darkness and Amphi Festival
and the band’s first ever appearances in Russia. He continued working with FLA on their ensuing
albums ‘Improvised Electronic Device’, ‘Airmech’ (a video game soundtrack) and ‘Echogenetic’.
Jeremy’s involvement with FLA (plus their frontman Bill Leeb's side-project Noise Unit) provided him
with the opportunity to present his ‘other’ band to a wider public, with the result that Left Spine Down
toured with the likes of Revolting Cocks, The Birthday Massacre, Genitorturers and oHGr, plus
a large scale North American trek with 16volt and Chemlab in 2010. Blending elements of industrial,
punk and alternative rock into a sound that was catchy yet abrasive, melodic yet fist-pumping, with
detailed electronica-style programming and a ‘fuck you’ punk attitude, Jeremy had formed LSD with
frontman Kaine Delay. The duo’s final album, ‘Caution’, was released soon after the group had
signed with Metropolis Records.
Bill Leeb of Front Line Assembly has this to say of Jeremy :
“I am truly shocked, heartbroken and saddened beyond belief. Jeremy’s animated larger than life
personality will be truly missed. Everyone who met him walked away saying that he was one of the
nicest people they had ever met. His creativity will also be sorely missed. He had a huge passion for
for music, film and a love of performing. We had recently started creating ideas for a new FLA album,
while he also participated on our upcoming ‘Airmech 2’ release, which we are dedicating to his
memory. Rest easy…. there will always be a place for you with us.”
Metropolis Records have stated that :
“We are stunned and saddened to learn of Jeremy's sudden death. We wish to extend our deepest
condolences to his family, bandmates and friends. His family requests that anyone wishing to make
a gesture in his memory to please make a cash donation at your local food bank. They also request
that we all please remember Jeremy for the kind, funny, soulful and talented person that he was."
