Twin Peaks – Down In Heaven (Released 13th May)

£22.99 – Indies only LP & 7″

Twin Peaks are ecstatic to announce their third record, Down In Heaven, which will be released on the 13th May through Communion Records via Caroline International.

Having careened across America and beyond, sharing their staggering energy, the band made their third album the best way they know how: by themselves.  The same group that produced the scuzzy squalor of their debut Sunken, had legions of fans screaming along to their anthemic second album, Wild Onion, now swings and serenades with Down In Heaven.

Born of Chicago’s league-leading DIY scene and with several of them remaining friends since elementary school, Cadien Lake James, Clay Frankel, Connor Brodner, Jack Dolan, and most recent addition Colin Croom share an enthusiasm, authenticity and passion their audiences have found contagious.  In the three years since dropping out of college to support their debut album Sunken, the band has covered a lot of ground.  They’ve played to ever-increasing crowds, bigger and rowdier each time they come barreling into a city; and they have performed for (and partied with) more than hospitable masses at festivals in the US and Europe, including Pitchfork, Lollapalooza, Reading & Leeds, and Roskilde.  In between all this action, the group set up camp in the summer of 2015 amidst the solitude of a murky lake in Western Massachusetts, where they could experiment and record on their own terms in the warm living room of a good friend’s house. Recording on reel-to-reel with the band learning studio tricks on the fly, Twin Peaks set out to a make an LP that reflects how far they’ve come and how much of life is left, trusting themselves to make a record they’d want to hear.

Co-produced by the band and longtime collaborator R. Andrew Humphrey, and mixed by new confidant John Agnello (Dinosaur Jr., Kurt Vile, Sonic Youth), the record is raw, polished and wise beyond its years. It is a marked and mature development for a band that doesn’t know how to play it safe.

Down in Heaven will bring old fans and new Twin Peaks most complex record to date, encompassing elements only teased on their previous efforts.  Frankel says, “I don’t know yet what kind of band we are, since we keep changing with every year.”
