Mass Gothic – “March Of The Cigs”

Indie rock outfit Mass Gothic will release their self-titled debut on Sub Pop tomorrow, but they’re already moving on to new music. Following LP tracks “Nice Night” and “Every Night You’ve Got To Save Me,” and their newest drop “March Of The Cigs” continues an awesome run. A long intro with warning sirens and a vicious, menacing bass line signify the controlled chaos that comes later. Rhythmic guitars and drums give way to an all out shred session with dense layers of electric guitars and atmospheric sweeps that cut through the thickness. All of this lifts the haunting anguish of the hook “All of the nights we kill to live/ All of the nights” to soaring heights, making it easy to sink into the elongated latter half and get lost. The track is from a split 7″ with Mazed that Mass Gothic is selling on tour. Listen below.

Mass Gothic is out 2/5 on Sub Pop. Pre-order is available here and here. Get the Mass Gothic/Mazed split at Bandcamp.
