In case you’re in need of a little Monday pick-me-up, Ultrviolence’s propulsive new post-punk single “Untitled” has you covered! The track is from the band’s new Black Sea EP that comes out this Friday and is now streaming in full via SoundCloud (listen below), ahead of their tour kicking off in Vancouver this Friday.

There’s a seemingly direct correlation between Ultrviolence’s acute sound and Calgary’s desolate prairie solitude, crafted meticulously after spending countless hours on their brooding, pensive mix of dark post-punk in a dimly lit basement filled with battered instruments… the isolation has resulted in the trio steadily writing, playing, and recording its own material with little reliance on external influence for nearly the past decade.

Tour Dates:

05/13 – Vancouver, BC – The Emerald
05/16 – Nelson, BC – The Royal
05/18 – Regina, SK – McNallys
05/20 – Calgary, AB – Broken City
