Xerxes – Exit 123

XerxesAvant-garde rock band Xerxes has released a new song.  The track is titled “Exit 123” and is set to appear on their upcoming new record, Collision Blonde, which is due out on October 21, 2014 via No Sleep Records. Pre-orders are now available.  Vocalist Calvin Philley comments on what fans can expect:

“I cooked at a restaurant in Southern Indiana about 50 hours a week for about a year leading up to the recording of Collision Blonde… I got fired during the recording process but that’s a different story. “Exit 123” is the first exit after you cross the bridge over the Ohio River from Louisville to New Albany on I-64 west and the route I took to work. I have severe anxiety about driving and it only gets worse as things pile up in my life with girls, money, work and anything else. Once I just panic attacked all the way to work, thought I was dying and all that. I fantasized about running through the guardrail in my shitty Chevy SUV. That’s it. I got myself fired in April and haven’t been back to Indiana since.”
