I wrote the above when I caught Big Ups in Brooklyn at Shea Stadium during Northside, the only local band on a four-band bill that also included Nu Sensae, Destruction Unit, and Psychic Blood. That full length they mentioned on stage has since been announced, and the album, titled Eighteen Hours of Static, comes out October 8 via Dead Labour. The album’s lead single, “Goes Black,” is a great example of the snarled post-hardcore they’ve become known for at shows and on earlier singles, and you can stream that below. The tracklist is below too, and that’s the album artwork above."
