WL//WH Video Of The Day: TOMBSTONES IN THEIR EYES “I Can’t See The Light”

Video Of The Day Tombstone In Their Eyes

Shoegazers of the world unite as we are happy to present you the brand new official video ‘I Can’t See The Light’ from Los Angels’ iconic outfit Tombstone In Their Eyes, plus a few more news on their upcoming double-album ‘Collection’ via Somewherecold Records on November 27.

Aptly named ‘Collection’ due to its anthology-like nature, this timely collection of 19 sonorous and hazy tracks will be offered in various formats. Ahead of this, they present the lead track ‘I Can’t See The Light’. Having recently transformed itself from a quartet to a trio when bassist Mike Mason moved to Washington state, Tombstones In Their Eyes now consists of John Treanor (vocals, guitar, keyboards), Stephen Striegel (drums, percussion) and Josh Drew (bass), but will be adding a new member, Paul Boutin (guitar) for live shows and future recordings. Within their melodic wall of sound are cavernous, stoner lullabies, wrapped in dark shoegazing dreamscapes and descending into post-rock soundscapes.

This compilation brings together select tracks from past releases, including their debut album ‘Sleep Forever’, their subsequent ‘Bad Clouds’‘Fear’ and ‘Nothing Here’ EPs, as well as the standalone single ‘Shutting Down’. The songs on this album were mainly recorded at L.A.’s Kitten Robot Studio with Paul Roessler (Nina Hagen, The Deadbeats, The Screamers, 45 Grave), all tracks have been remastered for this release and some have also been remixed.

“Collection” is just that, a collection of our songs that we wanted to gather together and put out into the world, remastered (and in some cases remixed) in one nice package.  We took the songs from our first record that most fit our sound, and gathered the other songs from our various EPs and singles. Sometimes EP’s and singles don’t get the attention that albums do, and we wanted to give these songs that chance.  Also, none of this material has ever been released on vinyl, so we wanted to rectify that.  It’s basically the best of our back catalog in either a double LP or double CD format” says John Treanor.

‘I Can’t See The Light’ will be released digitally on November 18. As of November 27, ‘Collection’ will be made available on limited edition double vinyl and double CD through Somewherecold Records and digitally everywhere, including via iTunes and Spotify. It can also be ordered directly from the band via Bandcamp
