Laura Jane Grace has surprise released a new stripped-back EP called At War With the Silverfish. The seven-song release is currently available on streaming platforms via Polyvinyl. Give it a listen below.
“I’ve learned that if you share your experience with good intentions that the universe will always surprise you with abundant return,” Grace said of the new EP in press materials. “Every song is an act of faith; you don’t necessarily know why you’re singing it other than you know you’ve got to sing it.”
Grace recorded At War With the Silverfish at her own TinyQuietStudio in Chicago and at Electric Eel in St. Louis. The new EP was mixed by her Devouring Mothers bandmate Marc Hudson. It follows her 2020 surprise EP Stay Alive, which Grace recorded with Steve Albini at his Chicago studio Electrical Audio.
