Spotlights - Hanging By Faith

Spotlights, the Brooklyn-based trio who released their Ipecac debut, Seismic, late last year, return with Hanging By Faith, a five-song EP featuring remixes from Void Manes and ISIS/Palms’ Aaron Harris.

The “The Hanging (Hang Us All) Kris Dirksen Remix” video, directed NY-based photographer A.F. Cortes, can be seen here:

Pre-orders for the EP, which is available digitally and on limited edition white vinyl, are available at the same link and include an instant download of “The Hanging (Hang Us All) Kris Dirksen Remix.” The fifth song on the album, “Faith,” is a cover of The Cure classic.

"We liked the idea of changing the song titles because, while these remixes really harness the core intention of the original songs, they all took on a completely new life, and totally stand on their own, as new compositions,” explained Mario Quintero. “The new titles were chosen by the people doing the remixes too, which we feel gives the songs even more of a personal touch.”

Hanging By Faith EP tracklist:

  1. The Hanging (Hang Us All) Kris Dirksen Remix
  2. Till Darkness Comes (Ghost of a Glowing Forest) Mario Quintero Remix
  3. Sudden Violent Movement (Seismic) Aaron Harris Remix
  4. Ice Giant (The Size of The Planet) Void Manes Remix
  5. Faith

Spotlights are undergoing a 15-date European tour now, including their debut Roadburn performance. The band plays a hometown, record release show at Brooklyn’s St. Vitus on June 30th. Toby Driver (Kayo Dot) and Somnuri open.
