The Skinny: It isn’t often that a seasoned musical veteran like Walter Schreifels (Quicksand, Gorilla Biscuits, Rival Schools) gets to do something that takes him out of his comfort zone but that’s certainly true of Schreifels’ role in his latest musical project, Vanishing Life. The band—which features Schreifels (guitar/vocals), Rise Against’s Zach Blair (guitar), …And You Will Know Us By The Trail Of Dead’s Autry Fulbright (bass) and Jamie Miller (drums)—was conceptualized at a music festival and now you can check out their song “People Running” from their upcoming seven-inch on Collect Records which comes out on October 14.

The group’s first 7″ release and Digital EP features “People Running” b/w “Vanishing Life” and is due out on October 14, 2014, to be followed by a full-length album set for release on Collect Records in 2015. The band will make their live debut on October 18th in NYC with two in-stores in one day: 2PM @ Generation Records in NYC and 6PM @ Looney Tunes Records in West Babylon, NY. Vanishing Life was first conceived in the Spring of 2013 at Belgium’s GROEZROCK FESTIVAL, where all four members were scheduled to perform with their respective bands alongside—oddly enough—Collect Records label principals Geoff Rickly (Thursday/United Nations) and Norman Brannon (Texas is the Reason).
