Into It. Over It. Announces New Album Details & Previews First Track

'Standards' will be released through Triple Crown Records this March

Hot on the heels of transcendent second full-lengths from contemporaries The World Is A Beautiful Place & I Am No Longer Afraid To Die and Foxing, celebrated pioneering indie-rock/emo revivalist Evan Weiss — aka Into It. Over It. — has announced release details for his eagerly awaited third album, Standards.

The full-length follows 2013's acclaimed sophomore effort Intersections — itself a successor to a lauded release, in this case IIOI's debut, Proper — but, already, Weiss describes it as "my favourite work of anything I've ever done" (no small feat, considering his involvement across outfits such as Pet Symmetry, Their/They're/There and formerly the likes of cult faves Damiera and Up Up Down Down Left Right Left Right B A Start). As Noisey notes, he and bandmate/writing partner Joshua David Sparks retreated to the seclusion of Craftsbury, Vermont, where they resided in an isolated cabin called Rebel Yell, built specifically for musicians.

According to Weiss, Standards was a "full year in the making, from its inception in Vermont, to its recording with John Vanderslice at Tiny Telephone Recording in San Francisco", and from the early treat we've been given in the form of first cut No EQ — which you can listen to below — it's safe to say that it has been time well spent, the track's nuanced opening keys and frantic-yet-muted drums raising excitement before returning and new listeners alike are cosseted by the comforting strains of Weiss' warm, rough-edged vocals. It is an extremely encouraging opener, and keeps expectations for Standards right where they should be.

Standards will be released via Triple Crown Records on 11 March. Into It. Over It. embarks on a US tour with The World Is A Beautiful Place & I Am No Longer Afraid To Die, The Sidekicks and Pinegrove soon after, and will be on the road through until the beginning of May — but, maybe if you cross your fingers extra-hard, an Aussie tour will get a look-in at some stage in the second half of the year.
