Seattle’s noise mavenesque / EMP band of the year Crypts has signed with LA-based Sargent House Records. A self-titled, Erik Blood-produced album will be released some time in the fall. Also on the Sargent House label are Russian Circles, Chelsea Wolfe, Mars Volta (vinyl), Deafheaven, Boris, and Zach Hill/Hella. For their upcoming release, Crypts have completely changed their sound. The album is going to be comprised completely of Sonny & Cher covers, in the form of “dubstep waltzes.” Crypts just want to make happy music now, and pay homage to their strong Christian faith. (And I am completely making that up.)
