White Fence announce details of their upcoming new LP titled ‘Cyclops Reap,’ which is out on April 9, 2013 via Castleface.
Listen to a new track, Pink Gorilla, which has a very 60s psychedelic vibe via Soundcloud below.
Here’s what Tim Presley from the band said about the album, “I have cyclops vision now. But I’m not a giant. I changed my name and body only, and stabbed my social nous in the right ear. I still read fear but there are no police this year. I can repeat the same dream. I can let birds talk to me. I’m in jail. I have love and a whistle. I lay where the lotus lay and then spring the frozen flowers on any giving day. I apologize to those put in the trees, but I was gathering the ‘Cyclops Reap’.
In the span of 4 1/2 years. I’ve lived in two different apartments and have used three different rooms during this time. All in Echo Park, Los Angeles, CA, only a couple miles from one another. After the death of my father in 2008 I started writing and recording non-stop in these rooms. I can’t say it was directly because of that trauma, but I think deep down it might have much to do about it. This record was initially going to be a collection of the many songs trapped between the 4 White Fence LP’s. As i was putting that together, there were more coming. a better crop. i couldn’t stop. So, instead of a retrospective i said ‘Fuck It’. might as well use the most current songs of the bunch. For the exception of ‘Make Them Dinner At Our Shoes,’ which is from 2009.”
