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.

TODAY IS THE DAY Release Music Video For “Masada”

animal motherToday Is The Day always pleases my earholes and I like seeing really intriguing, off-the-wall music videos, so today is a nice day because I get both. I get new Today Is The Day and I get an insane David Hall-directed music video for the bands song “Masada.” I’m not sure if it’s ignorance or my upbringing void people of the Jewish faith, but I wasn’t aware of what the name of the song was derived from until I looked it up. Apparently it’s the name of a plateau in which a bunch of Israelis committed mass suicide. METAL! Check out the video for “Masada” after the jump.      Continue reading
