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.

AT THE GATES, CONVERGE, & VALLENFYRE Announced For 2015 Decibel Magazine Tour

Decibel, America’s only monthly heavy metal magazine, has arguably packaged the sickest tour of next year. I mean, what could possibly top this? Recently reunited At The Gates with Converge, Vallenfyre, and an unannounced guest will be touring the country in 2015.

The Summer Slaughter Tour is supposed to be the “festival” that keeps all the metal extremists at bay, but the Decibel Magazine Tour has been 4 for 4 on sick lineups since its inception in 2102.  When Cannibal Corpse, Napalm Death, and Immolation is your weakest tour lineup, you must be doing something right.

Unfortunately the tour misses key parts the country, like Texas for one, but considering At The Gates have not toured North America since 2008, this tour is well worth the drive. Having support from fucking Converge and Vallenfyre (their first U.S. tour) definitely helps with the decision making.

Check the dates:

March 27 @The Wiltern, Los Angeles, CA
March 28 @The Regency Ballroom, San Francisco, CA
March 29 @Roseland Theater, Portland, OR
March 30 @Commodore Ballroom, Vancouver, BC
