NEW Hit The Switch ep - coming soon

Postby dieselkeith » Sep 21st, '11, 03:14

taken from Dying Scene...

Hit The Switch recently recorded a cover of Pink Floyd’s “Welcome To The Machine” and it came out pretty cool sounding, if you ask me. Give it a listen right here.

The band is presently working on a new EP but no release details have yet been announced.

The band released their last album “Observing Infinities” in May, 2009.

agreed! i was afraid of something truly horrible ...i mean, how often is a skate punk band covering Pink Floyd? ...but the result is great, this is way i want them to sound!!!

The singer of Hit The Switch gave me a free EP sampler on their show of Barcelona. This EP includes two new songs, WELCOME TO THE MACHINE and RETROACTIVE. The first one is the one you are talking about, right? Is RETROACTIVE already released? If it's not, I will upload it.

Woops, I have a little problem. The CD is a CD-R and it seems it has an error. The good thing is that you can listen all the song but the first, the one that is already posted, "Welcome To The Machine". Here's the song #2, Retroactive, the brand new one. You all already have 3,4,5,6, so nevermind.

Gonna make a post on the blog with this new song, Retroactive. Give me 10min

Retroactive sounds pretty sick, I'm diggin it! Can't wait for more new material by these guys, they're really talented!

they put my 2 favorite songs from "Observing infinities" on this demo.

Observing infinities looks like a demo, it is exactly the same as this. But a lot more expensive. hahah
Sorry I had to say it I've been really disappointed with this release, not because the music is bad (its really good) but I don't like how they sell a single sleeve like that 12,50$+shipping.

I like this band and I hope they'll release their next full lenght "properly".

Thanks Khet. Guess I"ll have to figure out how to rip the other one from Reverbnation.

Impressive !
I think it is maybe the most ambitious melodic punkband I've ever heard... Very "musical" and inspired...
