cymbalsmusic:

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.

Tough Love


Tough Love is excited to announce that it will be releasing the new album by Cymbals Eat Guitars on 25th August. LOSE is the New York band’s third album, and was recorded with John Agnello (Kurt Vile, Sonic Youth, Dinosaur Jr.). 
As the title infers, the album is a meditation on loss, and stands as a cathartic tribute to the death of friend and collaborator, Benjamin High. Frontman Joseph D’Agostino explains:
“LOSE is a very apropos title because it refers not only to losing Ben, but also it’s about a sort of nostalgia, a longing for a time when music meant everything to you and your friends, and it seemed like one great rock record could change everyone’s life the way it changed yours. It’s about being in mourning for your long-held belief that music could literally change the world. That’s the contradiction at the heart of LOSE… You’re disillusioned, but somehow you can do nothing else but rail against that feeling mightily and try, once again, to make a record that makes you and everyone else wake up wanting to listen to records.”
'Jackson', the opening track on the album, is streaming below. LOSE will be available on CD, LP and download.

NPR have premiered the new CYMBALS video for ‘The End’, the seven minute-plus centre piece of their new album The Age Of Fracture. Once again, it’s directed by Matthew Reed, who also created their acclaimed high-concept video for 'Erosion', as well as the album trailer. It is the aesthetic that was first introduced in the latter that is explored more fully in this new video:

"The video is a portrait of London over 24 hours, stripped back to its essential rhythms of work, leisure and the movement between the two. The song seemed, to me, to inhabit that grey area between four in the morning and dawn, when you have people going home from the night before and people getting up for work, sharing the same night bus.

So the video keeps ending up at that point. The idea being that however much you may try to escape it, city life keeps you hostage to very pronounced cycles of rhythm and routine. The video is an attempt to distill that into a psychedelia of: ticket halls, private gyms, gigs and Wetherspoons.”

CYMBALS are set to play a special one-off show at Corsica Studios next Wednesday (4th June), which sees support from Oscar and Shy Nature, as well as a very unique performance from poets Joe Dunthorne and Jack underwood. In July, the group cross the Atlantic for their first ever North American tour.
