TVD Recommends: The New Trust at Township, tonight, 10/30

Northern California indie-punk outfit, The New Trust, will be in Chicago tonight playing Township on their fifth U.S. tour. Led by Josh Stapes of The Velvet Teen and Jealous Sound, this is the group’s first full tour since 2008 and the release of their Get Vulnerable LP.

The tour will be on hold after tonight’s show until next Monday, 11/5, as The New Trust will be sticking around Chicago to record their upcoming album, Keep Dreaming. The band will be recording with the legendary Steve Albini, who has worked with Nirvana, The Stooges, Pixies, and Cheap Trick.

The new album promises a progression from the band’s darker tones by finding it’s origins and inspirations in dreams. Staples promises that while not a concept album, “Many of the initial ideas of these new songs are from dreams I’ve been having, or music I’ve remembered upon waking.”

The New Trust has a whole mess of vinyl available including a copy of Get Vulnerable on 12” white vinyl for $10 and their split 7” with Pteradon featuring “Wretched & Unwanted” and “Ethan Hawke is a Dead Man” for $5.

There’s even more wonderfully packaged vinyl available that you can check out online.

The 21+ show kicks off at 9:00 PM tonight at Township (2200 N California Ave). Setting the stage for The New Trust is Pink Avalanche, Meat Wave, and Empty Isle. You can pick up tickets at the door or on TicketWeb for just $5.
