Sticky and hot with anticipation, Look Mexico plans to warm the hearts of every indie-rocker again when they return this spring with the band’s sophomore release, To Bed To Battle. Though this shouldn’t be news to any of you by now, the Florida boys have kept mum about any details… until now.
With 10 tracks to tap to (say that ten times fast), the new LP promises a lot — at least according to the band’s press release. As it states, “To Bed To Battle ranges musically from anthemic pop/rock and explosive ballads, to alternately edgy and dreamy math-rock, to blistering, barreling modern rock, and even acoustic, chamber pop-laced Americana.” What’s it all about? The record “deals with struggle and pressing on in the face of adversity.”
Considering the band’s been holed up in the studio (a converted pizza shop’s basement, no less), this release should let out some tension. Look for it to hit streets March 23rd on Suburban Home Records. In the meantime, head on over to the label’s website to pre-order the single for “You Stay. I Go. No Following.”, which contains the B-side “They Only Take The Backroads”. It’s available in a variety of formats, everything from digital to rare 7″ vinyls — in assorted colors, no less!
