THIS PATCH OF SKY PREMIERES “PALE LIGHTS (THIS WILL DESTROY YOU REMIX)”
AUG 18 – Eugene, OR-based instrumental post-rock outfit This Patch of Sky has released a special remix of their recently released track “Pale Lights”. The original version and “Pale Lights (This will Destroy You Remix)” will both appear on the band’s fourth full-length album, These Small Spaces, which will be released on September 22 through Graphic Nature Records, an imprint label of Equal Vision Records founded by producer Will Putney. The remix can be heard now at soundcloud.com/equalvision.
“This Will Destroy You is one of the primary reasons why This Patch of Skywas created,” notes guitarist Kit Day. “The first instrumental song I ever listened to that hit my core was “Quiet” by TWDY, and it drastically changed my writing process as a musician. We chose “Pale Lights” to be remixed by TWDY because of the many textures and layers the song has, and thought it would be a perfect fit for them to remix. We as a band couldn’t be happier with the outcome, and it fits perfect as a bonus track for the album.”
The band recently partnered with BrooklynVegan and Adobe Create Magazine for the premieres of – “Bella Muerte” and “Pale Lights” – which can now be heard on Youtube.com/equalvision and on all digital retailers.
Physical pre-orders for the album are available now at thispatchofsky.merchnow.com, and include instant MP3 downloads of the recently released tracks “Bella Muerte”, “Pale Lights” and “Pale Lights (This Will Destroy You Remix)”. A double LP vinyl is also available for pre-order and is limited to 800 worldwide with four variants total. Science of Silence Records (US) is offering clear with black and purple splatter and clear with white and cyan blue splatter, both limited to 250. Dunk! Records (EU) is offering opaque white and transparent sea blue variants, both limited to 150 each.
The nine-track album takes listeners on a dynamic journey that navigates from eerie, somber soundscapes into gentle tapestries that build effortlessly into grandiose, soaring compositions – creating a sonic masterpiece, where instruments alone create a powerful and universal language.
That stunning instrumental language is composed by This Patch of Sky’s six members: Kit Day (guitar), Joshua Carlton (guitar), Joel Erickson (Rhodes), Alex Abrams (cello), Sean King (bass) and TJ Martin-Lokey (drums).
These Small Spaces was produced and mixed by the esteemed Matt Bayles (Caspian, Minus The Bear, Russian Circles) at Red Room Recording Studio in Seattle, WA in only one week’s time. The album was later mastered by the renowned Ed Brooks (Pearl Jam, Cursive, Pelican) of Resonant Mastering. These Small Spaces is the follow-up to This Patch of Sky’s self-titled release (LP, 2014), Heroes and Ghosts (LP, 2013), Newly Risen, How Brightly You Shine (EP, 2012) and The Immortal, The Invisible (EP, 2011).
