North Carolina duo, Eros and the Eschaton, released their debut full-length album, Home Address For Civil War, today on Bar/None Records. In conjunction, the band has offered up the entire album to stream courtesy of Prefix - repost here. Eros has previously offered up lead singles, "Heaven Inside" via Consequence of Sound and "Don't.Look.So.Sad" via SPIN. Katey Perdoni and Adam Hawkins will hit the road after a hometown celebration in Greensboro, August 23 and Hopscotch Festival performance, September 5 (full dates below).
Eros and the Eschaton are made up of Kate Perdoni and Adam Hawkins, performing live as a duo or backed by a carrousel of friends. The two met in Omaha, Nebraska when Perdoni traveled with The Haunted Windchimes from Colorado to support Hawkins' band It's True!. A spark, a connection - and Perdoni left Colorado to join It's True! on the road to California with her solo project Katey Sleeveless, settling with Hawkins in the Midwest upon the completion of their tour.
A year later, their child was born. After a brief rest, the two hit the road again with their solo acts, taking turns off stage to watch their baby son as the other performed. Ready to be landlocked for awhile after months of travel, they played a show in Greensboro, North Carolina and felt it was as good a place as any to rent a home and begin writing songs. Inspired by their new child, an evolved relationship, and their new location, Eros and the Eschaton came to be. The duo self-released two home-recorded singles in 2012 and caught the ears of Bar/None Records. With Home Address For Civil War, Eros and the Eschaton create a sound that shimmers and swirls like a carnival on a summer's night, bringing together elements of Low, Slowdive, and Yo La Tengo, filtered through a bright-eyed view.
