Carl Sagan’s Skate Shoes Release “Speak” + Self Titled Album Out August 19th

The final single from Carl Sagan’s Skate Shoes’ self-titled debut album (due out August 19th) is here! Wanna give it a listen? I know you do! Check it out below:

This alt-rock band are bringing the rich underground noise back with their heavy and intense post-hardcore flare. “Speak” is a good example of this, and while it sounds brutal,  it is about the triumph of the human spirit as it battles depression. The juxtaposition of the gritty and rough sound with the positive lyric, “don’t/never let it bring you down” is quite powerful. “Speak” describes the light at the end of the tunnel, and I think we all have days where we need a song like this.

Carl Sagan’s Skate Shoes formed in 2013 in Austin, Texas.  It was initially a two-man band (consisting of Steve Pike and Jacob Cruz) until they added Bill Indelicato. The band is an intense collision of early 90’s noise rock, post-hardcore, and their own creative swagger.
