We are here, we are somewhere.

I won’t lie: there was so much adversity that it was hard not to be superstitious.

But other things have just worked out perfectly.

No plateaus.

The thing is: to bring these songs closer to you all, sing at you and near you. Since The Age of…

Because this is what it means to do things this way.

We have another space where we can write about things that don’t relate directly to Tough Love, but somehow unconsciously inform it. Follow us here - http://toughloverecordsblog.tumblr.com/

"Technically NYC"

From Cymbals Eat Guitars upcoming full-length LOSE, out August 25, 2014.

Pre-Order the album and exclusive packages here.

iTunes pre-order

“It’s been like this dark undercurrent in everything that I’ve written in my life so far […] and now it’s not an undercurrent, it’s totally explicit. And it’s all out there. And I do feel like I can begin to write about other things in an equally honest and forthright way. Which is really liberating. I’ve kind of said my truth at this point. So we’ll see what that becomes.”

Stereogum have run the first interview with Cymbals Eat Guitars about new record, LOSE (out 25th August). Read it here.

That same site have also premiered new track, ‘Chambers’, a song about 'dealing with the loneliness and alienation that comes from living in that part of New York, and the anxiety of watching your family grow older.' That’s the song in the Soundcloud player the top.

Sorry for not writing on here for a short while. Things have been intense - I think I went through one of the least predictable weeks of my life after getting back from South by Southwest.
We’ve experienced things changing and other things staying the same in the middle of a whirlwind.
Matthew Reed made a film for our song The End - there should be a link below.
This film moved us - it caught something about what it means to live where we live and do what we do - to create music even though it’s like climbing a vertical wall sometimes, and where the city just whispers to you in the spaces between working and sleeping, encouraging you to embrace it and let it take hold of you, to make choices that allow you to participate in it.
This film was a retranslation - it said back to us what we had spoken into the great western airwave of independent music.
We were just discovering, drawing on what we know, what we’re trying to understand about our lives and the world, reacting and dancing about it because we can’t help it. This film comes back to us, colouring what we tried to make, like an answer in a different language.
So thank you Matthew Reed - just keep talking back to us.
