NEW ALBUM DEATH IS A WARM BLANKET
OUT 13TH SEPTEMBER VIA PURE NOISE RECORDS
BAND TOUR THE UK WITH TINY MOVING PARTS THIS SEPTEMBER
Atlanta, GA’s Microwave recently announced their new full-length, Death Is A Warm Blanket, out 13th September via Pure Noise Records. The album finds Microwave taking a daring sonic leap, plunging into darker and more aggressive territory than ever before while also providing their catchiest melodies to date. Today the band are sharing another taste of Death Is A Warm Blanket with one of its most ferocious tracks, “Float To The Top.” The song shifts dynamics on a dime going from downcast guitars and subdued drums into a chorus that’s as pummeling as it is anthemic. Vocalist/guitarist Nathan Hardy’s voice swings from whispering, to soaring, to throat-shredding, underlining the frustration and desperation at the heart of Death Is A Warm Blanket.

Microwave‘s sound isn’t the only thing that’s evolved on Death Is A Warm Blanket. The album finds Hardy documenting the drastic changes in worldview that often come with the harsh realities of adulthood, compounded by unending health problems, financial instability, and the ever-present shadow of today’s tumultuous socio-political climate. The result is an album that finds catharsis in chaos and a strange kind of nihilistic freedom. The anthemic elements of ’90s alternative collide with unbridled post-hardcore aggression and heaviness to create something uniquely exhilarating, honest, angry, apocalyptic, and even fun. Death Is A Warm Blanket might be an album about how the end is near, but it signals an exciting new chapter for Microwave.
