Exclusive: LAE Track Premiere + Interview

LAE-BAND

After nearly a decade-and-a-half of silence, Montreal-based experimental rock act Lae will release their long-awaiting debut full length, Break the Clasp, on November 25th.

The band were initially active in the mid 1990s under the name Lae-Tseu and impacted the Quebec art and post-hardcore/emo/indie scenes and earned a solid regional fanbase. As they were preparing to recorded their debut full length, the band dissolved and was put on hold in 2001. Now, nearly 13 years later, the newly reformed Lae are ready to unleash these songs upon the world.

We here at American Aftermath are excited to bring you your first taste of Break the Clasp in the form of the album’s seventh track, “Sister”. The song echoes psychedelic progressive rock and post-rock but the overall picture is far more expansive. The song, as well as the album in general, is wholly unique and escapes categorization. Stream “Sister” for yourself and read a quick interview with Lae mastermind Marc Lucas Ablasou after the break.

The Will Putney (The Acacia Strain, etc) and Randy Leboeuf produced offering has an official release date of December 9 through Good Fight Music. The album’s official artwork and track listing can be seen after the break. On the forthcoming release, frontman JSS had the following comments:

“The writing for Greying began shortly after the recording of Frailty and continued right up until we entered the studio. My motivation was to get a seamless fusion of the sounds and ideas of Each Breath Haunted and Frailty, as much as possible, then expand on that focused vein as best as I was able. Fortunately we linked up with Randy in the studio and he made this all possible in a way I believe other engineers wouldn’t have been able to. I’m very grateful to have had Randy and Will working with me on this album. I think that Greying is without question the most ‘The Banner’ album I’ve done.”

In case you missed it, you can stream the new track “Crippling Despair” below as well.
