New video premiere

Brooklyn Vegan premiered the official video for “Echoes and Empty Rooms” today.

Directed by Push 1 Stop, the clip features Trevor and Robbie submerged in echoing imagery feedback.

Echoes and Empty Rooms is the title track from the new album “In the A.M. Wilds”, which BV says “nicely mixes atmospherics and noise without sacrificing pop hooks… their MO since the early 00′s”. Get it HERE!

Song premiere – “On Again, Off Again”

Music Blog Quick Before It Melts premiered a new track from “In the A.M. Wilds” today – “On Again, Off Again”, which you may remember from the band’s in-studio videos posted on Pledge Music.

According to Trevor, “The song was built with an old drum machine, a live performance and some phone software. Our favourite part was the vintage ‘Fun Machine’ keyboard which they have at Troublemakers Studio. Lots of 12-string guitar in the arrangement too!”

In the A.M. Wilds – February 3, 2015

The High Dials will release new album “In the A.M. Wilds” worldwide via Fontana North/Universal on February 3, 2015. The band will premiere a new album track before the Xmas holidays.
