The Month in Math...November 2016

The leaves are falling and the jumpers are out. November is here and we preview a cracking month for math and post rock...


Electronica/post-something favourites Vessels have a brand new song streaming over on the Red Bull website.

London experimental, noisy, electronic post-rockers In Violet have finally released 'Amber', the long-awaited follow-up to 2013's 'Opal'. It's a beautifully dark, brooding record and is available now.

Worldwide math aficionados Fecking Bahamas have announced the full lineup for Bahamas Fest in Tokyo. It'll be well worth making the journey! Tickets are available through their website.

Glaswegian math/post-rock outfit Vasa have been confirmed as the headliners for the next Portals Festival at the Sebright Arms in London. Tickets are available here. Vasa have also released a new double-A side 'Burst Open' which you can buy now from their bandcamp.

Vasa have also been announced as headliners for Sheffield festival MADE. The superb bill also features Falls, Dialects, Winter Isle, Ganglions & Ba'al and takes place on the 3rd December at the Audacious Art Experiment.

Dan Cook of math-rock legends You Slut! is releasing a book about math rock entitled How To Be In A Band Your Parents Will Hate: A Guide to Math Rock via Fecking Bahamas. Make sure you keep all your senses peeled for this one!

Lite have released new single 'D' ahead of their upcoming album which comes out on the 16th November.

Electronic jazz-math outfit Luo have released their debut album 'Sleep Spindles' and it's truly stunning. Make sure you grab a copy from their site.

Fort Fest has been confirmed to return for 2017. We thoroughly endorse any festival that supports the weirder side of underground rock.

Hertfordshire atmospheric/math/post-rock 5-piece Redwood have just released a new EP 'Blood Moon'. Lovingly crafted and intricate, it will no doubt draw comparisons with Delta Sleep, Totorro and Waking Aida. Check it out here.

Barcelona-based noisy prog/post/doom-rockers Captains of Sea and War have released their debut album 'Remote' and it's a captivating listen. Fans of Russian Circles and Fall of Messiah will be drawn to it straight away.

Yikes! hail from Boston and have a wonderfully math-y EP out today.

Hoggs Bison have a new single coming out on the 18th November via Ingue Records. We've managed to have a cheeky listen and it sounds wicked. For fans of Delta Sleep, Cleft, Axes.


Check out this mesmerising performance of 'Cramm' by Three Trapped Tigers filmed by Small Pond Recordings live at ArcTanGent Festival.

Meanwhile, the Math Rock Blog have shared a fascinating interview with the departing Enemies about their writing process, their final album and final gig. Click here to read all about it. Enemies' new single 'Leaves' is streaming now on Stereogum.

Fecking Bahamas have released the latest in their series of Tales From The Road featuring stories of tour debauchery from some of your favourite artists. This edition includes Axes, And So I Watch You From Afar and Caspian and is available here.
