In May 2012, Sightlines released their debut, Summer EP. Since then there has been a steady stream of one-off releases from the band on gloriously antiquated formats – including a floppy-disc single and a split 7” with Crystal Swells – but no talk of anything with a runtime over 3 minutes from the Vancouver pop-punkers… until now.
Lead singer and songwriter Eric Axen has surpassed himself on Sightlines’ newest release, which clocks in at a career-defying 26 minutes and 52 seconds and offers fans 9 brand new tracks to delight over, plus revised versions of “Commiseration” and “Foreknowledge” from the acclaimed Crystal Swells split.
North was released on April 15th on 150g random green 12″ vinyl, in a co-release between Axen’s own Alarum Records and up-and-coming label Big Smoke. The record will be supported by a busy summer show schedule, including a recently completed loop of western Canada and the bands first tour in over a year.
Sightlines play May 20th at Anti-Social in Vancouver.
