Formed in the winter of 2008 Penguins Kill Polar Bears play their hope-drenched post-rock to anyone who cares to listen. The band were born from a mutual love of good music, including bands such as Aereogramme, Silverchair, Appleseed Cast and The Smashing Pumpkins.
Vessels & Veins, due for release February 2011, is the second EP from the band. The EP is a sweeping masterpiece, showcasing a band that are as comfortable with experimentation as they are tried and true rock formulae. Each track explodes into action, with walls of reverb-laden guitars layered over the top of throbbing percussion, and offset by Ben's raw vocals.
Following the release of their critically acclaimed debut EP Dawn in June 2010, the band have been busy building their profile supporting the likes of The Twilight Sad, The Xcerts and Nine Black Alps. They've also sold out various headline gigs and are, in their own right, a band not to be missed.
With an album set for release in 2011, Penguins Kill Polar Bears are sure to set the bar high for any other would be noisemakers out there.
