Beak, the Chicago-based post-metal quartet who turned heads last year with their EP Eyrie, are currently in the studio working on their debut full-length.
“The forthcoming record is a contemplation on beginnings and the struggle for life,” explained vocalist Jon Slusher.
“As a follow-up to Eyrie, if in record time was the end of all things, then the new album deals with creation after the destruction, the cycle of life.”
The band has reunited with engineer Neil Strauch (Iron and Wine, Bonnie Prince Billy) and are recording at Steve Albini’s Electrical Audio.
The album is due in stores this fall.
Beak have a hometown show booked for February 23 at Beat Kitchen, where they will perform songs from Eyrie as well as a preview of what’s to come on the new album.
