We’re pleased to bring you the premiere of Engines’ new album Obsolete (listen below), which is scheduled to be officially co-released through Forge Again Records, Be Happy Records, Killer Tofu Records, Middleman Records, and 4UBRO Records.
The vinyl release of Engines is limited to roughly 300 copies. You can purchase through all five labels, as well as directly from the band through their Bandcamp.
Engines is a five piece noisy indie/punk rock band from Chicago. Originally conceived as a solo project for Philadelphia-based songwriter Craig Woods (Towers, Elder, Peter and Craig, Two Piece Fest) under the moniker Hot Bagels, Woods moved to Chicago in 2014 and soon recruited fellow east coast transplants Lee Zickwolf (Ribbonhead, Costanza) and Jeff Twietmeyer (Almost Argyle) and Chicago native Justin Wexler (Stillwell, Forge Again Records) as permanent fixtures of the band. After two years of performing and writing as a four piece, they decided to add a full-time vocalist to the mix. Emily Jancetic (Holy Roman Empire, Longdistancerunner), once lovingly described as the “the Kelly Clarkson of post-hardcore” by All Music Guide, joined in 2016. And thus Engines was born.
