Post-punk trio WAY OUT delivered the world a swift sucker punch with their debut EP three years ago, and the tour de force blazes forth with their forthcoming debut album, titled Arc Of Descent. With a staunch line up including Nick Sadler of Daughters, WAY OUT balances resolute musicality with buoyant, sun slicked melodies.
Consisting of singer and guitarist Derek Knox, drummer Anna Wingfield, and bassist Nick Sadler [Daughters, Fang Island], WAY OUT’s sound leans heavy on a driving rhythm section interlaced with melodic guitar hooks reminiscent of post-punk greats Wire, Wipers, and early-era Cure.
Arc Of Descent is WAY OUT’s first new offering since the release of their eponymous four-song EP, which was released in 2015. In the years since, the band has shared the stage with Soft Kill and Chameleons Vox and toured across the country in various projects.
Atomic Action! Records will release Arc Of Descent on August 10—in the midst of WAY OUT’s upcoming East Coast tour. Pre-orders are available here.
