Mass Gothic’s brand new 5-song Sup Goth digital EP is available today, and was recorded in New York this past spring, shortly after the release of their superb Sub Pop debut, Mass Gothic.
Where the group’s self-titled debut chronicled the depths of depression, Sup Goth is the resulting catharsis. The EP is a collaboration between Noel Heroux and partner / bandmate Jessica Zambri, and marks the first Mass Gothic recording the pair have completed together [Listen to the full EP here].

Mass Gothic will release their Sup Goth digital EP on August 5th worldwide through Sub Pop Records (that’s US!). The 5-song effort was recorded in New York this past spring, shortly after the release of Mass Gothic. Where the group’s self-titled debut chronicled the depths of depression, Sup Goth is the resulting catharsis. The EP is also a collaborative affair between Noel Heroux and partner / bandmate Jessica Zambri, as it is the first Mass Gothic recording the pair have completed together.
Says Heroux, “I followed my previously usually-ignored instinct to allow the noise and color in my head to inform a specific, intentional sound as opposed to ‘throwing it all at the wall’ as I’ve done a thousand times before. It’s lyrically loose and conversational, informed by sonic landscape and stream of conscience. Jess approached her vocals similarly, although we hadn’t talked about it prior. We ended up with all these semi-hidden communications between us in the songs.”
Brooklyn Magazine says of “A Run“: “It’s expansive and positive and shimmering and anthemic, coming from a brave place populated by two people for whom love really does conquer all (see feature July 25th).”
Mass Gothic have also scheduled a short east coast tour in support of the EP and it’s self-titled debut, with label mate Kyle Craft. The trek begins August 9th in Montreal at La Vitrola and ends August 13th in Philadelphia at Boot & Saddle. There will be additional live dates announce soon, but for now… see below.

Southern gentlemen Arbor Labor Union share the stage with notorious knuckleheads The Gotobeds for the rest of this week (July 19-23), as they shred their way through the sultry South. What could go wrong?
