New album Mass. Grave will be coming out October 15 2013 on Kiam records (North America) and Africantape (Europe, Japan)
The Martha’s Vineyard Ferries is a summer fun punk band, created by Elisha Wiesner (Kahoots), Bob Weston (Shellac, Volcano Suns, Mission of Burma), and Chris Brokaw (Come, Codeine, The New Year), when they got together for a few days in 2009. Their new EP, In The Pond, is a 4 song 12” with music on one side, and a sweet little etching by Rosemary Hoeft on the other. It is a very nice record.
Elisha describes their process thusly:
“The band started as a fake joke band name Bob and i were using with some vague intention of maybe playing some music. We asked Chris to be the drummer in the fake band. A while after that we decided to actually do it, sent demos back and forth and got together at Bobs house in Chicago for a couple days of recording and eating hot dogs. Basically it's just 3 friends playing punk rock. All of us have larger musical commitments outside of the ferries but, for me at least, it was fun to just kind of come up with a silly idea see it turn into something really cool. I am certainly looking forward to playing some shows and future recording. It's fun to be in a band with no pressure, no expectations and no real time frame.”
Sick Room Records is proud to be able to deliver this one of a kind, limited edition 12” for your listening pleasure.
