Hurricane Bells is the latest project from Steve Schiltz, of Longwave fame. After releasing their album “Secrets are Sinister” in 2008 Schiltz began working on some songs by himself at his home with nothing but a Macbook and an M-box. The result was Hurricane Bells‘ first full length album “Tonight is the Ghost”.
“Monsters“, with it’s crunchy guitar sound and classic rock feel was taken for use in the Twilight: New Moon soundtrack, which catapulted Steve and his Hurricane Bells moniker into the spotlight. He has the platinum record to prove it. Anyway, a tour of India followed, a tour of the U.S. followed that (with a show in Canada as well), and now he is back with a new EP, “Down Comes the Rain”. Not only is the new EP available for pre-order right now from the Hurricane Bells site, but it’s appearing on a new label that Steve started called Invisible Brigades.
Very exciting news indeed.
There are also a few shows coming up in NYC and DC and sure to be more on the way. For now though you can watch the latest video for “The Waiting Song”, directed by Bill Moldt. Also check out the video that Moldt did for “Tonight is the Ghost” opener “This Year“. It’s a truly amazing and emotional video that works perfect with the song.
“Down Comes the Rain” is set for official release on September 28 and will come with a bonus re-mix EP. Head over to the Hurricane Bells site to pre-order it now.
