Ex-Breathers Debut “Pocket” on Stereogum // Announce New EP and East Coast Tour Dates

Tallahassee, Florida’s Ex-Breathers are getting ready to release their new EP, EXBX, a brash, chaotic, and explosive 12 tracks that roar by in just under 12 minutes. It’s safe to say the hardcore/punk trio is wasting no time. Every last twist and turn of their punk meets math rock meets hardcore sound is well crafted and delivered with an enormous fury and destructive perfection. This is not your typical hardcore band. Ex-Breathers are far more than that and EXBX is a dynamic record with skull crushing riffs that demand repeat listening. The EP will be released on October 7th via Texas Is Funny Records(Hawks (of Holy Rosary), Glish, Vetter Kids). EXBX is the follow up to the band’s triumphantly harsh self released full length debut Collision.

Today, Stereogum are sharing Ex-Breather’s first new single “Pocket” together with the bands tour dates (see below for complete dates). Stereogum called the song, “44 seconds of charging guitars, David Yow-influenced yelps, and still plenty of unpredictable twists and turns,” while comparing the brevity of the EP to recent punk favorites White Lung and Perfect Pussy.

Ex-Breathers are kicking off a two week tour starting tomorrow, July 31st with Birmingham, AL’s Deism that will take their explosive live show from Alabama up to Brooklyn and back down to Florida. Ex-Breathers are a band that truly needs to be seen live. Having formed in early 2011, and sharing influences of hardworking punk luminaries Minutemen, Fugazi, and Husker Du, the trio have played well over 200 shows in the past few years throughout the country including packed audiences at The Fest and Macrock Festival. There is a great DIY scene of punk bands emerging from Tallahassee, and Ex-Breathers are leading the way, one blistering riff at a time.
