New York City post-hardcore band Quicksand are pleased to announce the upcoming release of Interiors, their first album in 22 years. Interiors features the band’s original (and only) lineup of drummer Alan Cage, frontman/guitarist Walter Schreifels, bassist Sergio Vega, and guitarist Tom Capone. With its heavy but melodic guitar lines, intense rhythms, and emotionally charged lyrics, lluminant shows the scope of Quicksand’s influence on post-hardcore and indie-rock bands over the last two decades.
Recorded at Studio 4 Recording in Conshohocken, Pennsylvania, Interiors was produced and engineered by Will Yip (The Menzingers, Title Fight, Pianos Become the Teeth). While the album finds Quicksand embracing the cathartic, guitar-driven dynamic of their earlier work, Interiors also takes on a wider spectrum of sound.
“It was all just about being ourselves and who we were as well as who we are,” says Schreifels of the making of Interiors. “We did it for us completely.”
QUICKSAND emerged from the New York City hardcore scene in the late 80’s and featured members of Gorilla Biscuits, Youth of Today and Bold and Beyond. They released their now legendary debut album Slip in 1992, and toured the world. This album would bring the band critical acclaim and would go on to influence the music of such artists as At The Drive-In and Thursday. The band split in 1995 after a second album and members went on to form other bands such as Handsome and Rival Schools. They reunited in 2012 for a special one-night performance which has lead to a string of sold out tour dates across the globe. Interiors is the band’s first studio album in 22 years and the anticipation is building. The fans of Quicksand are loyal and patient and this one was worth the wait.
