Spotlights have given fans an early listen to the upcoming release, streaming new songs “The Particle Noise” (https://youtu.be/WSncsO55yRM) and “The Age of Decay” (https://youtu.be/veRrIHlvPSU). Consequence of Sound said the new music combines “elements of post rock, shoegazing, and sludge metal into a unique amalgam of sound that is both heavy and heavenly.” Album pre-orders, including a mauve-colored 2LP set, are available now with digital pre-orders including an instant downloads of the two streaming tracks: http://smarturl.it/LoveAndDecay.

Spotlights is Mario Quintero (guitar/vocals/programming), Sarah Quintero (bass/vocals) and Chris Enriquez (drums). Mario handled the production work on the eight-track offering. The band’s Ipecac debut, Seismic, arrived in the Fall of 2017. Ghettoblaster said of the album: “They avoid many of the common pitfalls associated with some shoegaze or sludge artists in that the album never feels like it drags. Sometimes doomy, sometimes romantic, it’s as heavy as it is beautiful.” Revolver said Spotlights “balance delicate atmospherics” and “crushing sounds,” while Treble Zine expanded on that sentiment, saying: “… the Quinteros make some truly huge-sounding music, much of it crushing. There’s an ethereality and grace about it, however, which makes the ambitious expanse of Seismic consistently interesting throughout its hour-plus runtime.” During the subsequent tours, Spotlights recorded an Audiotree session, which can be viewed here: https://youtu.be/eS4hKYOhqe0. The band released an EP, Hanging By Faith(https://spoti.fi/2E3LJxs), in June 2018.
