VACANT LOTS ANNOUNCE NEW ALBUM ENDLESS NIGHT TO BE RELEASED APRIL 21 VIA METROPOLIS

The Vacant Lots are happy to announce the upcoming release of a new album, Endless Night.  The LP will be released on April 21 via Metropolis and today the band shares the first single “Night Nurse” which showcases The Vacant Lots’ dark electro psych approach as it captures recurring notions of duality through a dizzying and hypnotic blast of guitar riffs and revved-up electronics.

LISTEN to “Night Nurse

Vacant Lots is the duo of Jared Artaud and Brian MacFadyen and Endless Night is the band’s follow up to their 2014 debut Departure. On the new LP the NYC/Burlington, VT-based band continues to channel the pair’s dual power through their minimal means maximum effect aesthetic. Endless Night is a bridge of two worlds with one foot firmly placed in hard-hitting rock and roll, and the other in the realm of electronic dance. Poetic, but with a streetwise swagger.

Endless Night was born through travels around the world with intensive writing sessions in Brooklyn, California and New Jersey.  These came in-between supporting Suicide in New York City at Webster Hall, and extensive European tours throughout 2015 and 2016. Initial recording sessions commenced with Ted Young in Brooklyn, but the final mixing and production was done when Artaud and MacFadyen were given a set of keys to the studio and left to their own devices.

Through a detached yet accessibly channeled dark-pop vision, and electrifying primitive punk spirit, The Vacant Lots cut through the dark.  This ethos is one they especially understand after working with their hero, friend and punk ally, Suicide’s Alan Vega. A few weeks before his sudden death in 2016, Jared visited Alan’s Manhattan apartment to play the finished album, since Alan was going to write lyrics and record vocals for the album’s “Suicide Note.”  After he passed away, the band received permission to go through Vega’s vault to find a vocal track for the song. After selecting an unreleased Vega track, they played it with the instrumental version of “Suicide Note” and realized it was a perfect fit.

The Vacant Lots will be touring in support of Endless Night.
