DC post-hardcore crew Design Flaw premiere new single, announce debut EP, ‘Beasts of A Future Decay’

Post-hardcore quartet Design Flaw have announced their upcoming, debut EP. ‘Beasts of a Future Decay’ is set for release on April 1st, 2022.

The DC natives have dropped a new song, entitled “Andromeda”. Listen here:

“Andromeda is a sort-of post-apocalyptic love song. We wrote it in 2020 at the height of the pandemic; like most people, we were stuck at home with our partners or family, desperately trying to make sense of things. Desperately trying to find a balance between hope, fear, and disillusionment.”

“Sometimes, you need to see things through someone else’s eyes when things are bleak. Their love for the world — or their love for you — can be the remedy that makes you whole again. If you are lucky enough to have that connection with someone, hold on to it at all costs.” – Navid Marvi

‘Beasts of a Future Decay’ is the debut EP from Washington, DC‘s Design Flaw. The record is a heavy, but uniquely accessible collection; a dark and atmospheric arrangement of soaring guitars, layered vocals, driving drums and bass, and otherworldly screams.

“A spacious, hypnotic sound, that I have absolutely fallen in love with” – Alex Baker, Kerrang

The post-hardcore quartet garner inspiration from the genre-bending alternative icons of the 00’s and 10’s, with Deafheaven, Glassjaw and Deftones particularly prevalent in the East Coast outfit’s dexterous lexicon.

With their hypnotic grooves and imperious, cascading crescendos, Design Flaw’s debut EP nods to the likes of Thrice, Russian Circles, offering an innate and intimate amalgam of post-rock, post-hardcore and blackgaze.

‘Beasts of a Future Decay’ is a deeply personal reaction from four humans in flux — an artifact of their search for balance between calm and chaos, fantasy and reality, hope and fear.
