Abbotsford band Malk will release its latest EP on Saturday, Dec. 13.
The band’s EP, titled “Prehistoric,” is being released by the Burger Records subsidiary label Wiener Records.
Malk was recently featured in Discorder and Beatroute BC magazines and will compete in the semifinals of CiTR Radio’s battle of the bands contest, Shindig, on Jan. 20, with the finals taking place in February.
“Shindig has really helped us generate some momentum,“ said lead guitarist Kyle Schick. “It’s an honour to compete at such a long-standing institution of the Vancouver music scene.”
Malk hopes to get plenty of mileage out of the Prehistoric EP, which was recorded by Felix Fung of Little Red Sounds.
They have been busy doing a campus radio mail-out campaign while preparing for two release shows.
“Malk didn’t want to choose between Vancouver and Abbotsford for the release show,” said guitarist and vocalist Alex Smith. “So we chose to go big in both cities with stacked bills.”
At the Vancouver show, Malk will share the stage with Crystal Swells, Hermetic and Dead Soft on Friday, Dec. 12 at music venue 333 on Dunsmuir Street.
At the Abbotsford release show, Malk will share the stage with Kin, Blessed and Middle of Nowhere at Aftermath at University of the Fraser Valley on Saturday Dec. 20.
At both shows, the Prehistoric EP will be available on cassette along with a digital download.
The EP will be also be available online at malkband.bandcamp.com and at select record stores such Free Wheelin’ in Abbotsford.
