My other band is touring the west coast this December

Currently working on a string of shows for this December with my other band with Nicholas Wilbur and Allyson Foster. Hungry Cloud Darkening is the name and our record Glossy Recall just came out this past Tues. Get it here. Above is a photo I composed for promotional purposes.

Posthumous Motorbikes Cassette


"Limited edition of 50 imprinted 5-screw yellow cassettes housed in 2-sided printed and pinked 'pop-tart' cardstock J-card, fresh Norelco box, 2-sided printed and pinked yellow cardstock Obi accent/closure strip, hilarious hand-cut Yamaha YZ-490 shaped color download voucher, and metallic gold serrated certificate wafer seal."

"4 explosive songs recorded as a band using only 1 microphone at the Dept. of Safety (Anacortes, Wa) in July of 2009. All singing and 2 guitar parts were overdubbed. Heavily influenced by the discovery of Rocksteady."

-

You may or may not be aware that before Ever Ending Kicks, there was Motorbikes. There are quite a few releases under that name, but none since early 2011. Just now, a self-titled ep of unheard material from 2009 was released. Buy it HERE and support upcoming eek releases.

2 YAMAHA demos



This passed December, 2 e.e.k. songs were featured on a cassingle box-set featuring Julie Byrne and Tom Filardo called "Trilogy I" from Holy Page Records. Performed on Paul's favorite childhood keyboard, these 2 recordings are humorously restrained melodic demonstrations of things to come. They are now available in digital and/or physical format at the e.e.k. bandcamp page.
