Stream the new EP a day early, ahead of its official release tomorrow on Equal Vision Records.
Seven years in the making, the first body of songs from Envy on the Coast since 2010 is finally here.
"This EP is a bit of a time capsule that we decided to offer as a first impression for this iteration of our band,” the Long Island-bred duo tells Billboard, summing up a transitive period of reinvention for the one-time quintet. The group called it quits back in 2010 -- months after releasing their sophomore LP -- and reformed last year, eager to return to the stage and revisit songs left unfinished since the split.
“These songs represent a time of turmoil and uncertainty in our musical and personal lives that took place seven years ago,” the band continues. “With Ritual, we challenged ourselves to make rock music that felt authentic to who we are in 2017, while still maintaining the core of what these songs meant to us when they were conceived.”
