This past Fall, Boxer
(Richmond, VA) teamed up with Eyes Wide
(Hollidaysburg, PA) to record a split EP. Boxer enlisted the help of Will Yip
(Title Fight, Balance & Composure) for recording while Eyes Wide
collaborated with Vince Ratti (Tigers Jaw, The Wonder Years) and the end result is a mind melting mix of melodic hardcore and 90s alternative rock.
This marks the second release from Boxer after debuting their EP Undertow on Reveille Records in 2012 and the first batch of new material from Eyes Wide since 2011. The album ranges from moody angst ridden jams like Boxer’s “Weight” to the gloomy passion of Eyes Wide’s “Gem.” Each band is showcasing three new songs which represents the current direction that both bands are embarking on.
On May 7th, 2013 the split will be released digitally (iTunes, Spotify, Amazon MP3) and on CD via Reveille Records. You can PRE-ORDER
