ABSOLUTExclusive: Maker
 
Maker is releasing a brand new self-titled EP on Nov. 13th through Asbestos Records in the US and Engineer Records in the UK, and today we're premiering the opening track, "Shadows." Maker has fully embraced the indie/emo sound, following in the footsteps of other site favorites like The American Scene and Transit. The band will be supporting Major League (No Sleep Records) and Turnover (Run For Cover Records) on a full US tour from Nov. 16th - Dec. 23rd where the group will be playing new material. Head to the band's AP.net profile to listen and leave your thoughts in the replies.

Musically, I like the direction they went in. Not so sure about the vocals though.

Im loving this, excited to hear more.

This EP is pretty great. fourth song sounds like it could have come right off of The American Scene's new album. This is probably the least TAS sounding song on the EP. but yeah. it sounds a ton like Safe For Me.

The vinyl release will be through Black Numbers. Release date is TBA.

It's been cool following these guys, since they're a local band from around here, from being a stereotypical pop punk band to growing into a band with a more mature sound. I like this.

I dunno about TAS. Later-era TBS, absolutely.

I hear insane TAS vibes from a few songs. I'm not the only one who I know feels that way too.

Sounds like this band may finally be coming into their own.

This EP has the same vibe as The American Scene's new record. It's awesome.

I like it musically but just can't get into them vocals.

I feel like it gets better as the song goes on. Mirrors is one of my favorite albums, so very eager to hear the EP.

New song is awesome. I'm hoping to see these guys back in Canada soon.

Jaytothesyg 10/10/12 04:33 PM

Never got into them but this is pretty good

I saw this band play a show with The Wonder Years in late 2009. Everybody went nuts for this band and no one gave half a fuck about TWY. Weird.
