The Illinois-via-Colorado band Planes Mistaken For Stars were one of the heaviest, most righteously wooly groups on the post-hardcore underground of the ’00s. They haven’t released anything since their monstrous 2006 album Mercy, and they’ve spent most of the decade since then broken up. But they’re back together now, and they return later this week with the ferocious and triumphant new album Prey. The band recorded the album with the great Chicago metal producer Sanford Parker, and it has all the dynamic range and blistering intensity that always made this band great. We’ve posted the early songs “Fucking Tenderness,” “Riot Season,” and “Clean Up Mean.” And right now, you can stream the whole album below, via Noisey.
Prey is out 10/21 on Deathwish.
