Blessed Stream Self-Titled EP Ahead of May 20th Release, Announce Canadian Tour

Blessed are excited to share their forthcoming self-titled EP ahead of its May 20th release. The record can be streamed below, and has garnered extensive praise both from publications such as Stereogum and Noisey as well as colleagues such as Purity Ring. As unpredictable as it is expansive, Blessed proves an enthralling listen from start to finish. Specific acclaim has been directed at the EP’s bookends “Waving Hand” and “Feel”. The album can be streamed in whole below.

Speaking on the EP, IMPOSE provided the following “The four songs are founded in punk, incorporating thick, thumping rhythm sections into creative, and creatively placed guitar leads. The compositions are unpredictable, but all characteristically pleasing … Melodies are longing and pretty, surrounded by elements of melancholy and eerie harshness. When things quiet down and the guitar work is most intricate, the curiosity is ever building. When a chord is struck, it’s very much a kick in the teeth. The Vancouver quartet exits your life just a abruptly and effectively as it enters, leaving you to analyze and question every feeling felt over the course of the record, which is probably a lot.”

The group has also announced an extensive Canadian tour, beginning May 19th and running through most of June with dates listed below. A tracklist for the Blessed EP can be found below.
