Following a handful of formative sessions with prolific drummer/producer Jim Sclavunos (Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, Sonic Youth), the Brooklyn-based Bootblacks released its first EP “Narrowed” in the fall of 2012. The debut full-length eVeinse came next in 2016 and was backed by extensive touring. 2017’s “Fragments” found the band expanding to a more synth-heavy sound.
Out on October 9th on Artoffact Records is the new album release of “Thin Skies” by Bootblacks. With “Thin Skies”, the band’s first album for Artoffact Records, they continue where “Fragments” left off. The whole was produced by Jason Corbett of Artoffact labelmates Actors with backing vocals courtesy of Shannon Hemmett (Actors) and Kennedy Ashlyn (SRSQ, Them Are Us Too).
