Hidden Hospitals premiere new music video; EP 002 out tomorrow

By on October 30, 2012

Hidden Hospitals will be self releasing their EP002 . Recorded in Nashville and mixed and produced by J. Hall, EP 002 is the Chicagoband’s deepest dive into music yet. As front man David Raymond explains, “After absorbing the experience of our first EP (001) we discovered all of these new sounds that I feel are unique to us as a group. In other words, they wouldn’t have surfaced had we not been exposed to each other. EP 002 is parallel to this exploration, discovery, and mindful application.” 

“…an amazing release full of emotion, hooks, and harmonies….the production quality of the EP is stunning …another well-crafted highly charged rock masterpiece. Overall, EP02 is a great second release by a band that continues to grow into their new identities and push their talents.”- Scene Point Blank
“With Alt Rock as its foundation, Progressive Rock in its instrumentation, and Post-Punk in its atmosphere it comes across as an EP very confident with its sound and style.”- What Culture
“Their music has an epic sweep and muted euphoria to it….there is nothing typical about this band’s sound. The instrumentals sweep you along like a river raging over rapids filled with eddies and dangerous undercurrents.”- With Guitars
Chicago quartet Hidden Hospitals boast former members of Damiera and Kiss Kiss, and that experience shines through in these five slickly put together, melodic rock tracks…a consistently catchy, meatily-produced sound with slight electronic flourishes, and distinctively rounded off by frontman David Raymond’s vocals.” – In Forty

About Hidden Hospitals:
It’s not often that a project of any variety comes out of the gate with a clear brand, vision, purpose and identity. But Hidden Hospitals, a four-piece alternative rock band from Chicago, IL, has accomplished just that. Most bands spend years and many album cycles sifting through ideas to define a sound. Hidden Hospitals’ singular focus has been forged from many collective years within the music industry in previous projects, including Damiera [Equal Vision Records] and Kiss Kiss [Eyeball Records].
“Places revealed to those seeking resuscitation, rejuvenation, decompression, atonement.” Their website defines where this band derives its moniker. Their iconic mark embodies this foundational vision. Obscured within a double “H” is the universal symbol for aid.
Amid 5 years of continuous touring, former Damiera frontman, Raymond and Nashville-based producer J. Hall formed a bond of mutual respect and purpose. This relationship made the band’s first release EP 001 possible, and led to a reteaming with Hall for their new release, EP 002. Recorded with no outside funding, Hidden Hospitals has once again chosen to self-release the new EP. They intend to forge new paths, leaving a trail that inspires others to follow.
