The world may seem like a pretty strange place right now, but if nothing else thats forced us into realizing that being human is a shared experience. That sentiment lies at the core of Earth Is A Black Hole, the second full-length from the Los Angeles rock act Teenage Wrist.

The album also marks the groups first release as a duo, with guitarist Marshall Gallagher stepping up as frontman, and longtime drummer Anthony Salazar backing him up in spectacular fashion. Gallagher explains. I wanted to keep this band going and we didnt know exactly what that would look like, so I wrote two songs and demoed them myself to see if everyone was still on board. Those songs turned out to be the jangly power ballad Yellowbelly and spacey rocker Wear U Downand with that, a new era of Teenage Wrist was born.

The artistic liberation of this lineup change, coupled with the past two years the band spent touring alongside genre-smashing acts such as Thrice, allowed Teenage Wrist to expand on the shoegazing sound that helped establish them as one of the most exciting rock bands around today. From lush, guitar-driven songs like High Again to the atmospheric ambience of Stella and syncopated aggression of Earth Is A Black Hole,most evidently on the swirling anthem Silverspoon, Earth Is A Black Hole sees the band shifting their songwriting focus to a more modern sound that showcases the limitless potential of the band.
