LACES OUT sounds like licking dirt with tiny granules of sugar scattered throughout. Hailing from Orange County, New York, the band features members of Warwick-based post-punk quintet Pigeon, as well as acts Mandark, Veneer, and others. Drummer Steve Delucia and guitarist Ed Ciarfella have been playing together in various projects for nearly twenty years. Longtime friend and local scene veteran Ray Wasnieski joined the duo in Pigeon and continued onward with them in LACES OUT.
Dynamics and angular progression drive their sound, which is heavily influenced by noise from the ’90s. Listeners can expect to hear elements of Fugazi, Unwound, At The Drive In, Jesus Lizard, Pissed Jeans, BVS, Young Widows, Drive Like Jehu, and Nirvana from their songs.
The band’s first material since 2017, Roger Podacter was recorded by LACES OUT and Jeff Rendano at Boomstick Recording, Monroe, New York, engineered and mixed by Rendano. The tracks were mastered by Eric Castillo and the EP was completed with artwork by Joe Kelley.
"Noisy, turbulent, and agitated, LACES OUT are making their presence felt with their brand new EP Roger Podacter. The four-song collection, set for release on July 15th via Nefarious Industries, is like a noise rock aficionado’s salvation, coming off like a stick of dynamite you’re grasping in your hand, about to explode." - V13
"Short but very sweet indeed, LACES OUT have set a statement and level of expectation for their first release since 2017. Roger Podacter‘s genuine emotions are its greatest strength by far and are only bolstered by rage, its pace is wonderfully thick and fast with a playful element thanks to the guitar work. The trio have successfully nailed their comeback." - Distorted Sound
