Stream the New EP from New Wives, Playing New Earth Friday

Whew, that’s a lot of “new”s. Below, check out the just-released five-track EP from local “doom-pop” outfit New Wives. The band describes the self-titled effort, which it also refers to as the Black EP, as denser and darker than its debut outing, appropriately dubbed the White EP.

New Wives plays tonight (Friday, Mar. 28) at New Earth Athens, where it will open for Nashville rockers Diarrhea Planet. Read our preview of that show here.
