Salt Lake City post rock band, Westing, premieres new song + announces new album, I Haven’t Been Feeling Myself, to be released on April 14, 2017

Listen to the first single from Westing now. “With You” previously premiered on Substream Magazine.

Westing is about to release their loudest album to date, I Haven’t Been Feeling Myself. With this album, Westing departs from their previous quiet acoustic sound and introduces a whole new intensity, expanding into a full band post-hardcore sound.

“I was so caught up in everything going wrong. I realized I had to become present in the moment and shift my focus to what truly makes me happy. I needed to get out of my head.

After several solo shows, I quickly realized playing quiet acoustic songs by myself is not what I want to do. I need to be loud.” – Matt Mascarenas ​

Matt Mascarenas started Westing as a solo project in 2015. In what began as a way to keep his musical creativity alive when he wasn’t touring, Westing quickly became an ongoing pursuit, releasing a series of impromptu acoustic singles and splits. ​​

Westing set out to record in a new environment and teamed up with Brett Romnes (I am the Avalanche) and Gary Cioni (former band member from past band Daytrader) during the fall of 2016 to create I Haven’t Been Feeling Myself at Barber Shop Studios in Hopatcong, New Jersey. ​

What originally started out as an acoustic solo project, Westing has transformed into a high intensity sound somewhere between the punk-rock he grew up with and indie songwriting he grew into. I Haven’t Been Feeling Myself will be released on April 14, 2017.
