From Seattle, WA, City of Industry mix earnest melody, crusty annihilation, and Seattle gloom –– for fans of Ceremony, Dystopia, His Hero Is Gone, Converge, and Pixies. The trio expands its sound into new realms of musicality on False Flowers –– anthemic hardcore is peppered with piano, viola, radio transmissions, and at least one majestic David Gilmour-esque guitar solo. Vocalist Ossa Humiliata pens remarkably poetic lyrics; he names Rainer Maria Rilke and W.H. Auden as inspirations. The album was recorded by Nich Wilbur at The Unknown in Anacortes, WA (Mt. Eerie, Sumac, Angel Olsen); mixed and mastered by Jack Shirley (Deafheaven, Gouge Away).
