Post hardcore/sludge band Dyatlove will re-issue its debut EP next month.
The band is scheduled to re-issue to self-titled recording on a limited edition cassette release Aug. 31 through Coup Sur Coup Records. It will feature the bonus track ‘Die! Kill! Pig!’ Initially released in May, the EP will appeal to fans of bands, such as Converge, Thrice, and Deafhaven.
Guitarist Rikki Jennings-Buford discussed the forthcoming re-issue in a recent interview.
“We are all super excited to have the cassette release with Coup Sur Coup,” said Jennings-Buford. “Max has supported us from day one and it’s a great working relationship. Even more so we are pumped for everyone to get to hear the bonus track ‘DIE! KILL! PIG!’ It’s a song we are proud of and we are ready for it to be out in the world. Be ready for some more treats after the official release date!”
Coup Sur Coup Records official Max Cayer added his own thoughts about the EP’s re-issue.
“Vancouver’s Dyatlove brings the perfect balance between sludge and shoegaze. Somewhere between Cult of Luna/Khoma & Hum,” he said. “It’s a proven fact that the Pacific Northwest always was a hotbed for heavy music, lots of rainy days enable groups to lock up in rehearsal spaces and hack out heavy, intense music. Dyatlove is a testament to that. They’ve put their own twist on the genre, hints of post-hardcore, Emo, and atmospheric heaviness. I’m super proud to be involved in making this release happen, they are right at home with Coup Sur Coup…” I think it’s a testament to the quality of the music to say that after dubbing the tapes, I still want to listen to the album.”
