lushes stream forthcoming ‘Service Industry’

Lushes have streamed their forthcoming release 'Service Industry', the LP comes out on October 16th on Felte.

Lushes new album, aptly titled Service Industry, will come out October 16, it is a rollercoaster through the maze of modern living. It was recorded and mixed by Sonic Youth’s long time engineer Aaron Mullan at Echo Canyon, during a period of intense money, work and life stress.

The sound also came out of the tension between the duo – with singer/guitarist James Ardery having grown up listening to punk and rap, and drummer Joel Myers raised on classical music. But the tension comes into balance with every song, ejecting the band’s music from the cultural hype machine out onto our daily lives.
Service Industry extends the tensions begun with Lushes’ debut album, What Am I Doing. In their first album, the themes of anxiety were often held back in pursuit of serene moments, brief escapes from our mundane lives. With Service Industry, Lushes give you something more raw, more guitar-and-drum driven, more primal.

The album throws a wrench in things. It stands as a map of a crisis, a bleak snapshot of our world, and a question: why continue living like we do?
