Apse to Release new LP "Climb Up" October 20

Newtown, CT experimental rockers Apse are set to release their sophomore LP Climb Up on October 20 through ATP Records. It's hard to believe the group has been around for around a decade. Through line-up changes, switches in location and relentless exploration in the limits of genre constraints, the group is finally follow-up their triumphant 2006 LP debut Spirit. That album prompted Pitchfork to call Apse a "latter-day Radiohead or Sigur Ros," so you can be sure to expect great things from Climb Up.

The new album has been in production since 2008, recorded entirely by the band in their homes in Cape Cod. The group promises a "greater use of electronics, a range of instruments both modern and classical and – notably – a much stronger emphasis on voices and melodies" in the album. It's going to be a long wait 'til October.
