The Dying Arts

Back in April, NCM's Noah Siegel praised "Scratch", a new single from Toronto rockers The Dying Arts, as "muscular, raw when it calls for it, and incisor sharp". Those tags also apply to their just-released self-titled new EP, a post-punk slanted album that brings to mind the likes of Husker Du. Melody and muscle coalesce neatly, as on our fave cut "Snake In The Grass". Nothing dead or dying about this band's adrenalized sound. The EP was produced and engineered by Jon Drew, whose impressive resume includes Alexisonfire, Tokyo Police Club, Fucked Up, and his own fine outfit Uncut.

The Dying Arts launched the record with a Toronto gig at The Horseshoe last week.
