THE ANTLERS release Burst Apart LP

Brand new LP released on Transgressive Records June 13

2009 saw the release of The Antlers’ astonishing album ‘Hospice’, an elaborate song cycle dealing with life, death and all the in-between, a record which earned the trio of Peter Silberman, Michael Lerner and Darby Cicci rapturous praise, striking a deep and resonant chord in both critics and audiences alike.

Now comes their follow-up, the rather aptly named ‘Burst Apart’, released in June on their new label home Transgressive Records – an epic, breathtaking collection of songs which are lush, nuanced, and uncommonly moving, seamlessly integrating accessible and breathtaking melodies with dynamic, imaginative orchestrations. Indeed, with its swelling pulsebeats, intricately crafted arrangements, and dreamy pop hooks, the remarkably sensual ‘Burst Apart’ sees The Antlers’ ambition and artistry ascending to an extraordinary new plane – listen to the opening track ‘I Don’t Want Love’, which Pitchfork named Best New Track this week, for evidence of this.

In addition, following on from a smattering of shows at this year’s SXSW Festival, The Antlers will be making their long anticipated return to the UK this summer, with headline shows at Heaven in London and Club Academy in Manchester, finishing up with a show at The Great Escape festival in Brighton on May – providing an unmissable, exhilarating glimpse into The Antlers’ incandescent heart.
