Crying at Chanti – this Thursday, November 3rd!

Crying (Run For Cover Records) return to Ithaca at Chant-Loft this Thursday with Spazzare, Benjaminto, What Nerve.  Presale tickets available for $10 (no fee), $12 at the door.

“The indie rock trio Crying folds the bombast of mainstream ’80s rock into their sound, and the results feel like a grinning inversion of the hetero-masculinity that’s often baked into such fireworks.” – Pitchfork

“Fortunately, Crying have arrived to deliver us from our sorrows. What may have started as a fairly innocent chiptune project with the group’s 2014 double EP Get Olde / Second Wind has already evolved levels beyond, into a force that both throttles our current cultural obsessions while being daring enough to simply and bracingly have fun with them. Beyond the Fleeting Gales, Crying’s full-length debut, is a dramatic, life-affirming thrill ride that reinvents twee as a muscular, confident embodiment of youth, less the story of a sad kid on the bus than a trunk-rattling night out with all your friends. The trio of Elaiza Santos, Ryan Galloway, and Nick Corbo turbine a sumptuous bounty of gimmicky styles into a swirl of reckless abandon and enthusiasm, a mishmash of arena rock, 8-bit, emo, and prog that jettisons much of their cultural baggage in favor of making something both immediate and personal.” – Tiny Mix Tapes
