NEW RELEASE: We Built a Fortress on Short Notice
CD/LP street date tues, nov 6th, 2012

self-evident are signed to US label, doubleplusgood as well as Stiff Slack Records in Japan.

In the time since their last release (2009’s Endings), Minneapolis trio Self-Evident have been busy touring. They spent a month playing shows throughout Europe, in addition to several US tours. This past July the band traveled to Japan, a tour highlighted by headlining both nights of the Summer Meeting Festival in Tokyo. All of this playing has not gone to waste. On November 6th, Self-Evident return with an even more refined, melodic & challenging sound that is truly their own on We Built a Fortress on Short Notice, their 6th album (4th for dpg). Recorded in Februrary with longtime engineer, Carl Amburn, the new album displays the constant evolution of a band that blends elements of math, post rock, hardcore, and more into a singular voice. Imagine a band with jazz like chops, but raised on the Discord and Touch & Go catalogs. The band will kick off a 3 week US Tour on November 2nd and will be returning to Europe in the spring of 2013. WBAFOSN is available on CD & LP via Stickfigure Distribution or digitally from iTunes worldwide, eMusic, Amazon MP3, Bandcamp, etc.

Early Press for We Built a Fortress on Short Notice:

“One of the more interesting bands that have been commonly associated with “Midwestern rock” over the past few years has been Self-Evident.” — Built On A Weak Spot
