The Phantom Broadcast is releasing their latest EP, Sublimation Love, on Friday. You can stream the release here via Ghost Track:
The Urbana band has been around for a few years but seems to be picking up more steam as the lineup solidifies – a goal of this latest EP, according to frontman Evan Opitz.
“We wanted to solidify our six-piece lineup, which has been the most consistent and cohesive group of musicians we’ve had thus far,” Opitz said.
The EP was written over the past year and recorded with James Treichler at Earth Analog studio in Tolono, Ill.
Opitz also said the band made it a point to use no effect pedals on the EP, including distortion pedals.
“No distortion or effects pedals were used, just a clean guitar in a warm tube amp,” Opitz said. “Obviously there were a couple musical manipulations when Joe Meland was in the producer’s and mixer’s chair, but we wanted to keep it as raw as possible and let the music tell the story.”
The Phantom Broadcast will be playing a release show on Friday night at the Canopy Club in Urbana. Here’s all of the band’s upcoming dates:
11/20 @ Canopy Club (Urbana, Ill.)
12/4 @ Mike N Molly’s (Champaign, Ill.)
12/11 @ Cowboy Monkey (Champaign, Ill.)
