Omaha, Nebraska-based indie group Cursive return with their first LP in six years, ‘Vitriola.’ This is the band’s follow-up from 2012’s ‘I Am Gemini’ via Saddle Creek. The new album will release October 5th via their own imprint 15 Passenger. ‘Vitriola’ was recorded by longtime producer Mike Mogis, and the newly released single ‘Life Savings’ is their first off the forthcoming LP. The starting dissonance of ‘Life Savings’ revels in hard-hitting riffs, ominous cello, and Kasher’s urgent lyrics.

According to Cursive’s frontman Tim Kasher, ‘Vitriola was written as a reaction to an ulcer I now live with as a result of all the ‘vitriol’ seeping into our daily lives. Rather than contributing to the anger, hopefully this record can be witnessed as a reflection of our collective anxieties, and perhaps offer a little catharsis.’

In addition, Cursive will kick off their new tour after the LP’s release. Check out the dates below:
