Los Angeles rockers have premiered a new track from their forthcoming sophomore album, Above & Down Below, over at LA Weekly. The new track is entitled “Echoes” and with its melodic low end and soaring hooks, it will be stuck in your head all day. Head over to LA Weekly to stream the sludgy pop tune.
Above & Down Below will be released on September 23rd.
Aeges have released a new music video for a song that I’m sure we all hold close to our hearts: Gnarls Barkley‘s “Crazy.” Well, while this isn’t the cover I pictured Aeges doing, I have to admit that it is phenomenal. I’m not sure if the band will release this cover or if it was just for fun, but regardless, it’s great. The video was filmed in the bands practice space and you can check it out after the jump.

Aeges will be releasing their new album Above & Down Below in September and the band has released the track “Fault” for your streaming pleasure. I never really listened to Aeges before, but decided it was time and I am currently kicking myself for not getting into this sooner. The bands music is dreamy and… Fantastical.

Guitar World have premiered a new track from Aeges from their upcoming Bad Blood split with Dust Moth, which is due out on October 29th via The Mylene Sheath. The new track is entitled “Parasite” is an extremely catchy hard rock track whose chorus is destined to stay in your mind for the remainder of the day. You can check out the track after the break and pre-order the 7″ at this location.
In addition to the Pelican 7″, The Mylene Sheath will be putting out the Bad Blood 7″ split between Aeges (Pelican, etc) and Dust Moth (ex These Arms Are Snakes, Minus the Bear, etc). No word on release date or purchasing information yet but I can only assume that it will be very limited. To prepare yourself, check out a track from each band below.
According to a recent photo uploaded by drummer Larry Herweg (Pelican, etc), hard rock outfit Aeges are in the process of writing their follow up to their solid debut record, The Bridge. That album was heavy and catchy in all the right places and showed off the band’s potential. I can even begin to fathom how good the next record will be. No other details have been released so far but I will keep you in the loop. Until then, check out the video for “My Medicine” below.

Æges is a fairly new band featuring members of Pelican, Shift, Undertow and 16. With a line up like that it is hard not for curiosity to strike. They released their debut full length, The Bridge, via The Mylene Sheath earlier this month and I was pleasantly surprised by what I heard.
ÆGES (Pelican, etc) will release their debut album The Bridge on the 17th through The Mylene Sheath. For those who cannot wait you are in luck. Rdio.com has the entire album available for streaming as we speak. The only catch is that you have to sign up on the site. It’s free though so don’t freak out. Go listen now!
Pelican are an instrumental post-metal powerhouse that deserves to be heard! Their last album, What We All Come To Need, was one of the best albums of 2009. I recently got a hold of drummer Larry Herweg to answer a few questions regarding the album as well as Pelican’s future plans and their past work.
