New York City post-hardcore band Quicksand have today released ‘Interiors‘, their first album in 22 years.
‘Interiors‘ features the band’s original (and only) lineup of drummer Alan Cage, frontman / guitarist Walter Schreifels, bassist Sergio Vega, and guitarist Tom Capone.
Recorded at Studio 4 Recording in Conshohocken, Pennsylvania, ‘Interiors‘ was produced and engineered by Will Yip (The Menzingers, Title Fight, Pianos Become the Teeth).
While the album finds Quicksand embracing the cathartic, guitar-driven dynamic of their earlier work, ‘Interiors‘ also takes on a wider spectrum of sound on which Schreifels comments;
“It was all just about being ourselves and who we were as well as who we are. We did it for us completely.“

With its heavy but melodic guitar lines, intense rhythms, and emotionally charged lyrics, ‘Illuminant‘ shows the scope of Quicksand’s influence on post-hardcore and indie-rock bands over the last two decades.
Formed in 1990, Quicksand made their full-length debut with ‘Slip‘ in 1993 and followed that in 1995 with their second album ‘Manic Compression‘.
“We were very influenced by Fugazi and Jane’s Addiction. But we were doing it in a certain context with an energy that was just special and unique and kind of shined through.“
Throughout the early ’90s, Quicksand toured with bands like Helmet, Fugazi, Rage Against the Machine, and Anthrax. After disbanding in late 1995, they reunited for a one-night performance in June 2012. They’ve since appeared at festivals like FYF Fest and Pukkelpop, and in 2013 embarked on their first North American tour in 15 years.
