Dayton, Ohio’s Cricketbows are set to release an inspired EP of new material this fall. Produced by Buffalo Killers’ Zachary Gabbard, this six-track effort, entitled Communion, is the band’s first release since their 2015 debut album, Diamonds (produced by Grammy Award recipient Brian Olive). The EP will also coincide with the release of a full-length film entitled “Where The Ocean Meets The Sky” that will feature behind-the-scenes footage and videos for all of the songs from Communion.
During the lengthy recording process for the EP the band experienced a number of life changes, losses and new beginnings. The band replaced original drummer Jim Ingram with Kyle Sweney, two members of the band opened substantial new businesses and other members changed their careers and day-jobs and nearly everyone in the band experienced weird phenomena that ranged from sleep paralysis to possible contact with otherworldly life forms. “We all have had some bizarre dreams and weird lights coming in windows and shadowy figures looming in our dreams and things like that,” admitted Wells. “Sometimes we get freaked out by it but it’s kind of par for the course for this group. Everybody in the band had weird childhood experiences and experiences as adults that sort of ties us together. Sometimes we’re as much a support group for each other’s weird experiences as we are a band. That’s a little bit what the title of this EP is about. Communion is about coming together or being brought together and experiencing these life changing moments.”
Cricketbows’ Communion will be available September 8th on CD, digital and streaming formats via Mosquito Hawk Records.
