BOOTBLACKS SHARE “HOLD & DISSOLVE” TRACK VIA BLACKBOOK ‘FRAGMENTS’ OUT 9/14 VIA MANIC DEPRESSION RECORDS
LISTEN & SHARE: Bootblacks – “Hold & Dissolve”
“could sit proudly amongst the trenchant, doomy psychedelia of Echo & The Bunnymen’s potent classic ‘Heaven Up Here'” – BlackBook
“Direct sonic descendants of Xymox and Front Line Assembly” – BrooklynVegan
“Sounds like a skittering love letter to Bauhaus, Joy Divison, Depeche Mode and all the other bands that ultimately bridged the gaps between punk, post-punk, and new wave” – Nerdist
“Bootblacks, in other words, is this generation’s answer to Joy Divison, and likely the closest we’ll ever get to hearing another band play with the same intensity, emotion, and fearlessness as the iconic Manchester band.” – The Revue
Today, Brooklyn-based Bootblacks have shared the debut single from their forthcoming album via BlackBook. You can listen to “Hold & Dissolve” here. The band’s Panther MacDonald explains that the track is about “knowing you have to leave people behind, and how hard that is. And even though letting go is difficult, you can both find the time to remember someone while remembering that it’s not over yet.” ‘Fragments’ is out 9/14 via Manic Depression Records.
