Baltimore based trio Whenskiesaregray are back with the follow up to their well received 2013 EP What Can Not Be Reversed.  Produced by Pianos Become the Teeth guitarist Mike York, the band’s new self titled LP seamlessly moves from the screamo/melodic hardcore blend fans have come to expect, to working in elements of metal, grunge, and indie rock. In no track is this growth more apparent then the first single off of this LP, “We Passed Each Other Quietly.” From start to finish, this emotion filled rager draws you in.

Whenskiesaregray- Whenskiesaregray will be available on vinyl/digital release everywhere March 31st via Mayfly Records.Check out “We Passed Each Other Quietly” now at Brooklyn Vegan.

Mayfly Records welcomes Crush to the family!!

January 23rd, 2015

 

crush2

Mayfly Records is extremely excited to welcome Oakland, California’s Crush to the family. Consisting of members of multiple Bay Area bands, Crush started as simply something to do between their other bands’ shows. As some of their projects faded away, the guys decided to give this project a boost, round out the lineup and play some shows(including a west coast tour in the spring). Crush plays a perfect blend of indie, grunge, and shoegaze that will be certain to appeal to fans of Dinosaur Jr, Weed, Wild Moth, and Duster.

Mayfly will be releasing the band’s self titled 7″ later this spring, followed by another release in the fall. More details coming soon!
