THE ATLAS MOTH have been working non-stop since releasing 'An Ache For The Distance' last year on Profound Lore Records. There has been numerous tours, SXSW showcases and the band has even landed a spot on the 2012 edition of the Pitchfork Music Festival. Now, Scion A/V has partnered with the band to create a new video for the track "Your Calm Waters" which is available for viewing at MetalInsider.net.
The clip was produced by Ryan Oliver of Deathblow Productions.
THE ATLAS MOTH is also excited to announce their participation in this year's annual Record Store Day (April 21st). The band will be on-hand at Reckless Records in Chicago to perform live as well as to unveil their limited edition cassette release of their first two EPs ('Pray For Tides' and 'One Amongst The Weed Fields'). These packages, issued by 5nakefork Records, come with green cassettes and are limited to 100 copies.
Frontman Stavros Giannopoulos comments, "I grew up in record stores, whether it was spending weekends scouring bins of vinyl when I was a kid or working in them throughout my teens, I think they're a really special way to shop for music that isn't going to be understood in 10, 20 years without things like RSD. We were asked by my favorite store in Chicago and we jumped at the opportunity. To make it a little more special, we are releasing the our first and out of print EP 'Pray for Tides' on cassette. On the b side will be the first physical release of our cover EP 'One Amongst The Weed Fields'."
Reckless Records is located at 1532 N Milwaukee Ave in Chicago, IL.
