Health&Beauty Share Video For “Wartime” – watch it premiering as DIY’s Neu Pick HERE
Wichita Recordings Debut NO SCARE out August 5th 2016
US Tour Dates Announced
On August 5th 2016, the Chicago-based trio Health&Beauty will release theirWichita Recordings debut NO SCARE. Today, the band shared the video for the album’s debut single “Wartime”, premiering now as DIY Magazine’s Neu Pick – watch it HERE
Previously, the band premiered “Riverside Cemetery” with Chicago-based siteRedEye, who said “In the song, which boasts breathless intensity due to its recording, harmonies and buzzing guitars bubble up to the surface for some sublimely executed and noisy indie rock.”
Consequence of Sound said the band “deals in quirky time signatures and changes, though they make it perplexingly straightforward, shades of everything from Tortoise to Maps and Atlases working into the instrumental, though some poetic lyrics and buzzing guitars lead the way.”
Health&Beauty is the name under which Brian J Sulpizio has released music since 2003. The current lineup of the group has been playing together since 2012, featuring pianist Ben Boye (a constant collaborator since 2009, who also plays with Will Oldham, Angel Olsen and many others) and drummer Frank Rosaly (a regular collaborator with Peter Brotzmann and many other jazz and experimental music greats). This version of the group along with bassist Anton Hatwich, made up the band on Ryley Walker’sPrimrose Green.
NO SCAREis the most euphoric listening experience presented yet in the band’s catalogue, where darkness and light can’t help but complement each other in the short comedy of the human experience.
Health&Beauty recently completed a run of very well received mainland Europe shows with Kevin Morby, and will announce UK shows soon.
NO SCARE will be available on LP, CD & Digital. Pre-order the album physically HEREand digitally HERE, with an instant grat of “Wartime” and “Riverside Cemetery.”
