Buildings And Volunteer Announce Triple Eye Split EP

Buildings Volunteer SplitMinnesota’s Buildings and Milwaukee’s Volunteer have been hard at work in their respective cities, each crafting their distinct brand of dissonance over the course of the last few years. Triple Eye Industries is happy to announce that on August 26 they will release a split EP featuring brand new material from both acts. Since the release of the Goner EP in 2014, Volunteer has evolved, they’ve added Kevin DeMars on drums, and former drummer Mark Sheppard has moved to guitar, Volunteer is at its strongest in 2016. Their side of the split finds them at their angriest and most aggressive, with bigger guitars, tighter rhythms and furious vocals. Buildings make their Triple Eye Industries debut with their three offerings on the split. Much like Volunteer, Buildings have also experienced a slight line up change with the recent addition of bassist Mike Baillie. Their side of the split contains the band’s best material to date, while showcasing what the band does best: Pushing the sonic boundaries of what a trio can create. The songs contained here are as hectic as they are sparse and don’t let up from start to finish.

You can pre-order the split now on clear with blue splatter, opaque yellow or black vinyl here
