Modern Superstitions Release School Days/Way I Want 7″ May 29th


Modern Superstitions’ guitarist Matthew Aldred sums up the band’s manifesto stating, “I want to know that I’ve done what I love doing and that I did it the way I wanted to do it, that I can stand behind it and I like it. I don’t want to be scared taking risks. I don’t want regrets.” The band’s highly anticipated 7” upholds what Matthew talks of in this quote. Last Gang Records is pleased to announce the release of Modern Superstitions School Days/Way I Want 7”, available digitally on May 29th and physically on May 31st. The band will kick off the release with a hometown show at The Garrison in Toronto on May 31st.

From the moment Modern Superstitions step on stage they captivate their audiences with Nyssa Rosaleen’s hypnotic vocals, Matthew’s driving rhythms, Patrick McCormick’s melodic bass lines and Benjamin Reinhartz’s solid drumming. The 7”, produced by Brian Borcherdt (Holy Fuck, By Divine Right), features two new tracks School Days and Way I Want. Both songs see a determined growth in the group’s songwriting – always challenging themselves sonically. The band describes the songs as, “Synesthetic necromantic songs about love. From the word to the letter to the feeling, a holding on and a letting go.”

Fermented by six years of casual rehearsal and dedicated exploration, Modern Superstitions is a hard band to stylistically pin down. They burst onto the music scene with three strong EPs: All The Things We’ve Been Told, Honey In The Lion’s Ear and The Beginning Sounds In The End. With each EP there is an evolution to the bands sound, but the music itself defies description. Under the guidance of Last Gang Entertainment, Modern Superstitions continues the alliteration as a band poised to forge frontiers rather than settle for the mundane.

Get ready for a summer of Modern Superstitions!
