On October 6, 2023, Pittsburgh, PA’s grunge-gazers Gloomer will release Embrace The End via Friend Club Records. The album was engineered and produced by Dave Alcan, who happens to be the assistant to Jay Maas (Defeater and Lover Letter). Formed in 2020, Gloomer founding members Bill Karachristos and Josh Marshall envisioned a single release of a few songs that Karachristos had been working on. They soon became a full band with addition of Addison Steele and Aaron Bromley. Heavily influenced by ’90s era alternative and shoegaze, Gloomer creates a shimmering hazy blend of guitar histrionics and bombastic rhythms with a 10 song LP coming in October.
Check out single and official video for the lead single, “Being and Nothingness" from the forthcoming LP below. You can also check out the album's second single, “Feel Again," below as well. Says lead singer Bill Karachristos of the latest track, “‘Feel Again’ is probably my favorite song on the record. I wanted to write a song that directly addressed my own personal fear of other people’s demise, as well as the struggles I go through on a daily basis to cover up my own anxieties in public. This song came together naturally once I brought it to the band.”
