Kindling To Release No Generation EP
Premieres New Song “Claims Nonexistence”
Western Massachusetts-based indie rockers Kindling have announced the upcoming release of their new EP, No Generation, out on February 24th. Today they have also shared the track “Claims Nonexistence” from the EP, which is currently streaming via Post-Trash. The EP is drawn from the same sessions that produced their recent full-length album Everywhere Else, and was recorded by Justin Pizzoferrato (Dinosaur Jr, Sonic Youth, Pixies, Speedy Ortiz). A short and punchy Ramones-on-codeine number, the track is representative of the more direct, pop-oriented songs that make up No Generation.
No Generation will be released in the USA on Old Flame Records, and in Europe on Adagio830 & Echo Canyon Records. The EP is available to pre-order HERE.
“Claims Nonexistence” is a song about directionless anxiety, indecision, and not feeling at home in our houses or our selves,” writes founding member Stephen Pierce. “It traces the alienation that you may feel towards yourself and your life if you spend uneven amounts of time looking in the rear view… we hope that the subtext is one of some sort of hope and that we’re not alone in how we feel… maybe we can create the world we want to live in among ourselves, if we can pull ourselves out of bed.”
Kindling was formed in 2014 by singer/guitarist Gretchen Williams, and singer/guitarist Stephen Pierce. After initially releasing the Spike & Wave 7″ EP, the duo evolved into a full band consisting of drummer Andrew Skelly, bassist Aaron Snow, and guitarist Jeff Stevens. A mix of melodic noise pop, guitar-heavy indie rock, and DIY punk with a reverb-soaked dream-pop/shoegaze texture, they released their full-band debut EP, Galaxies, in 2015 on No Idea Records. Their first full-length album, Everywhere Else, followed a year later. Recorded in the same sessions that yielded Everywhere Else, the No Generation EP is arriving just months later, as the band continues to hit their stride, sharing bills with bands such as Dinosaur Jr., Parquet Courts, Screaming Females, and PS Eliot.
