Topshelf Records (Defeater, My Heart To Joy, Pianos Become The Teeth) is stoked to announce the signing of We Were Skeletons from Lancaster, PA. The label will release the band’s newest Self-Titled album on June 29th on LP and CD format. Look for pre-orders to begin around the first of May.
We Were Skeleton’s brand of screamy, chaotic hardcore should appeal to long-time fans of the genre. The album was recorded with Will Killingsworth (Orchid, Ampere) at Dead Air Studios and is the band’s greatest accomplishment to date.
The band will be playing MACRoCk this upcoming weekend and also has several April shows lined up with label mates Pianos Become The Teeth.
