The brand new single, “Carol’s Dead,” is the first track off of Engine Summer’s upcoming EP, Back-Street Boys, which will be released this December.
The three-piece band started playing together back in 2016 and have garnered a quick success since. With two tours of the East Coast, a Daytrotter session, and have supported larger acts such as Ra Ra Riot, Bodega, Acquaintances (members of Don Caballero) and Baked (members of Titus Andronicus).
“Carol’s Dead” was recorded live to analog tape at Treehouse Records by Barrett Guzaldo, mixed by Jeremy Marsan & Engine Summer, and mastered by Alex DeYoung.
The band wrote: “The route of the record is a detour from anything we’ve done before, aiming to create a collection of tracks we’d throw on at a house party or in a graveyard kegger. The song riffs off of anxieties of daily life, like haunted houses and Wayne Gretzky.”
