#41for2016 band Visceral Candy stopped by The Battlefield periodically throughout the year with Tim Stiles, of Passion Party, who we done told you about this year too. The fruits of their labor is available for pre-order in both digital and limited edition 12” vinyl.
The album, Visceral Candy’s “Feat. Tim Stiles,” vacillates between neurotic self-consciousness and oblivious swagger. Seth Swift and Ian Hernandez (of Visceral Candy) move on from their last concept album about losing pets with a push/pull of morose poetry and frivolous bragging. Stiles leads the sense of gravitas on this record, riffing on uncomfortable dinner parties, men who dress as clowns, and stuffing your big fat face.
Local recording artist and producer Jay Battle (QREEPZ, Dead Rich, Gran Rapids) takes a leap in producing live instrumentation, which is what gives the first track “Clown Shoes” a groovy Soul Coughing/Why? feel.
Pre-ordering the personally signed, limited edition vinyl provides an immediate download of their first single, ‘Clown Shoes.’ The album releases digitally on November 22, 2016.
