toe // Our Latest Number

Today we are proud to share the latest record from the widely influential toe.

For nearly two decades toe has consistently redefined the limits of experimental rock, and their latest number is no exception. The four songs that comprise Our Latest Number feature the band's signature spellbinding tenets: dextrous, interwoven guitar melodies trickle around clever, unpredictable drumming, with eruptions into syncopated, awe-inspired climaxes. Never relinquishing the electric suspense they're known for, a decidedly more introspective overtone sets the record apart from its predecessors, lending a personal edge to toe's sound that reaches beyond the boundaries set by their previous work.

There's simply a kinetic energy about everything this band does. Our Latest Number shows the band seamlessly shifting between various instrumentations while experimenting with dynamic vocal arrangements and glitchy, looped samples. Their willingness to constantly test the waters of experimentation is a testament to their status as the definitive authors of the subgenres they're commonly associated with.

Long before we ever started working with them, toe was a band that always captivated us. The spectrum of their sound constantly widens while somehow retaining a distinct, precise organic feel. The new EP, Our Latest Number, is out now. Check it out on your preferred music platform, here.

The band will embark on a North American tour this fall. Tour dates can be found here.

Our Latest Number was recorded and mixed by Mino Takaaki, and mastered by Akihiro Shiba.

Enemies / toe release day!

Two of our favorite bands and two of our favorite records, ever — released on the same day! Enemies' Embark, Embrace is an instant classic and toe's The Book About My Idle Plot On a Vague Anxiety is a completely unreal classic record. They're both out today and both bands will be coming to the US soon to support their respective releases. Below are details on where you can pick up or listen to each record, along with an update on the vinyl production of each. Thanks!

toeThe Book About My Idle Plot On a Vague Anxiety

Vinyl update: the records are in, LP jackets are shipped to us and will be in hand this week, LP inserts will be in our hands in two weeks. This album will be shipping out the first week of September.

Enemies - Embark, Embrace

Vinyl update: LP jackets and LP inserts are in, test presses have been delayed (we were told we'd have them weeks ago and still don't; we're not sure why. Kinda getting the runaround here and it's a bummer) so we'll keep you posted on this one via email. We'll be looking to rush production on these once tests are approved. At best, this will be shipping out in mid-september.

I am incredibly elated to be typing this right now.

toe is one of my favorite bands of all time (my last.fm charts don't lie!) and one of the main reasons I got into this music community that Seth and I both love so much (and now amazingly enough find ourselves working within).

This has been in the works for years and I'm beyond excited that it's finally come to fruition. We will be releasing the band's most recent EP "the future is now" on 10" vinyl via three color ways (with first press limited to 1,000) as well as CD on November 6, 2012. There's also a huge 18x24" poster to boot. We'll have the preorders up soon. The pre-orders are now up!
