This is not a drill! Quicksand has posted a teaser video today for some new tunes that are coming via Epitaph Records. The band posted a 30 second clip earlier today on their social media accounts, as well as Epitaph's, with a small peek into the music that also included the text: "In our time, Oh you never know for sure" before live footage plays in with the title "QUICKSAND interiors 2017." Check it out below:
It's unclear still if "Interiors" is the name of the first single to be released or the name of the actual album itself, but either way we are excited. In July the band was asked if it was true that they were working on new material, frontman Walter Schreifels responded, "Can't confirm or deny."
In June the band announced their headlining tour beginning in September for the following dates and venues:
Quicksand originally broke up as a band back in 1995 at a high point in their musical success. The band reunited briefly in 1998 for a show in February in Japan and later that same year went into the studio to begin recording material written in the prior six months.
Quicksand then returned to the studio again in 1999 after a North American tour with Deftones to continue working on the new album; despite the successful tour and a more collaborative effort in the writing process, tensions resurfaced that would eventually split up the band indefinitely in late 1999 and doom the material to remain officially unreleased. Since then however the unfinished album, as well as demo material from the "Manic Compression" sessions, has since been circulated on the internet. Quicksand reunited a few times since then for special appearances and tours. Their most recent time together on stage was last July at Taste of Chaos: The Festival in San Bernardino, CA.
