Tiny Engines is excited to announce the first vinyl release for Santa Rosa, CA’s State Faults‘ debut EP, Head In The Clouds. Originally released under the band’s previous Brother Bear moniker, the five song EP was the original impetus for interest from the label.
Head In The Clouds was digitally released in September of 2010. Tiny Engines will release the 5 song EP, remixed and remastered with brand new artwork, on 12″ vinyl in the Spring of 2013. Pre-orders to come soon.
Head In The Clouds proceeded the band’s breakthrough debut full-length, Desolate Peaks. Formed in early 2010, State Faults immediately began writing and recording music within the cramped confines of a 2nd floor apartment. Huddled together in the California heat, the group created a tightly knit sound, drawing upon elements of 90’s emo and post-hardcore. Those early days gave birth to the band’s impressive self-released debut EP, Head In The Clouds. Released in late 2010, the EP quickly spread through word of mouth and State Faults began to cultivate a devoted following.
In what can only be described as an advancement of the sound created on Head In The Clouds, Desolate Peaks followed in the Spring of 2012 as the band found a perfect balance between craft and composition. The 1st pressing of Desolate Peaks is close to being sold out but a 2nd pressing will soon follow. You can snag a 1st pressing copy HERE right now.
State Faults recently signed to No Sleep Records and are currently writing in preparation for their sophomore full-length, tentatively scheduled for Fall 2013.
