The Skinny: The Dying Arts have just announced they have signed to Toronto-based indie label Culvert Music. A new EP titled You Had It Coming will be available worldwide on October 23, 2015. The band have premiered the ferocious lead single “Liar” – check it out above.
Since dropping their self-titled debut EP in 2014, the Toronto-based foursome – guitarist/vocalist Mike Portoghese, bassist Simon Poole, drummer Joe Torchia, and guitarist Daniel Scuglia – has seen their profile surge at same rate as their van’s odometer thanks to their now-signature blend of riotous punk with bits of post-rock and indie. With You Had It Coming, the band perfectly embodies the spirit and substance that they exude onstage; an urgent, unrelenting swagger reminiscent of early-’90s Sub Pop and Dischord roster staples that’s caught – or rather demanded – the attention of tastemakers and discerning devotees alike.
