Basement have shared a second new track from their forthcoming LP Beside Myself. “Stigmata” is streaming now with an accompanying visualizer. Frontman Andrew Fisher commented on “Stigmata”, explaining “This was the first time I had tried a different tuning and the song pretty much came out all in one go. It felt really organic – in fact I think the arrangement on the record is the same as the demo I first showed anyone”.
Beside Myself is not a concept album, but themes throughout often relate to the inability of being comfortable in one’s skin. Being concerned about the future, troubled about the past, and how difficult it can be to exist in the moment. Produced by Colin Brittain and Basement themselves, and mixed by Rich Costey, Beside Myself marks Basement’s Fueled By Ramen debut and follows their 2016 breakthrough, Promise Everything.
Basement will embark on a run of intimate U.S. record release shows this fall. The headline dates, which feature support from Elder Brother and Pllush, kick off in Lawrence, KS on October 6th before heading west and ending in Portland, OR. Tickets are available now.
