Empathy Test has reported via Twitter and Facebook that they have completed work on their second EP, Throwing Stones, and that it will be released by the Brooklyn label, Stars & Letters Records sometime this summer. The highly anticipated follow up to this year's debut EP, Losing Touch, should put the band in the position to reach the next level.
Empathy Test takes the whole DIY ethic to a new level. The band could be considered masters of social media, with well placed Twitter follows and then word of mouth, the band has gathered a considerable following. Don't let that fool you though, the music stands on its own, it's really great. Now, one can hope some live dates are on the horizon.
Until then, listen to the moody synth driven Losing Touch.
I'm a fan of the band, reviewed Losing Touch when it was released, then the EP when it was released and even did a Q&A session with the band. I'm happy for the guys, and feel like a label release was imminent, I just didn't think it would be so fast. Congratulations. I can't wait to hear the new tunes.
