Album Review: After Wednesday Releasing New EP – Vampires & Architects

After Wednesday will release their new three song EP, Vampires & Architects, Thursday June 6th, 2019. A follow up to the November 2018 single release “Heart to Find“, Vampires & Architects hits the ground running with “Vampires,” a whimsical guitar sounds and bright chimes of the cymbals, the deep bass chords pull alongside the kick drum to perfection. Next up is “Architects” a powerhouse pop rock tune that will surely be a crowd pleaser. With lyrics “don’t let go when the bridge is down/ all it goes to show that/i’m on my way today” you’re uplifted listening to the song, a great motivational tune that I can already see the crowd singing back to the band. Vampires & Architects wraps up with “What Do I Do” another killer track from the three piece band, the vocals from Patrick Wilson lure the listener in and the intense breakdown between the verses boots up the energy into a frenzy of a wild and vibrant conclusion to the EP.

 Superb instrumentals all around on Vampires & Architects; from drummer Jack Kellett and Bassist Bennett Smallwood, guitar-work from front man Patrick Wilson and a phenomenal recording with Engineer and Producer Michael Bivens, at Redwood Studios in Bethalto, IL.  After Wednesday will premiere the new tunes at their release show June 8th at The Duck Room in St. Louis in the Delmar Loop joined by Decedy and Sensor Shake.
