We aren’t dead yet! Washington Irving prepares EP of unreleased tracks

by

Washington Irving, Outland Ballroom, July 26, 2008

No, they will not go quietly into that good night, sir. Indeed, Washington Irving will rage against the dying of the light as long as it can. Not only has it booked more shows in less time than ever before in order to take advantage of the last while before guitarist Brett O’Neal moves to Illinois, the ’90s-influenced indie band is dusting off a collection of songs it never recorded before. With time running out–the group’s final show is August 1–it is making one last EP and releasing the last bit of up-to-par material it can. Four songs were recently recorded with Blake Walker Audio to include on the EP, including one track just added to the band’s MySpace titled “A Housing Project Named Desire.” You can hear it by clicking here. The band hopes to have the EP ready in time for its show at The Outland Saturday night with Loose Lips Sink Ships and The Short Histories of Powerful Nations, but if not it will be available at the farewell show in August. We would say more, but, frankly, we’re out of literary death cliches.
