Industrial band, Panic Lift continues the unraveling of its themed EP release cycle with the band’s first release of 2022 titled Stitched. This four song EP features two new songs titled “Every Broken Piece” and “Bitter Cold” with remixes from Mechanical Vein and Tragic Impulse.
Lyrically, “Every Broken Piece” and “Bitter Cold” continue with the familiar themes of stress, coping, and concerns of self-image. Hardcore Panic Lift fans may remember “Every Broken Piece” from Panic Lift’s lockdown shows in 2020 that were broadcast online during the height of the COVID19 pandemic.
For Stitched, Panic Lift explores a harsh ebm sound more stylistically similar to their landmark debut record ,Witness To Our Collapse. James Francis explains “I’ve always tried to find a happy medium between what I’m doing now, and where I started” he continues “but now that I’m doing smaller releases, I have the ability to experiment with different styles without having to worry much about how they fit with the rest of my catalog”
Stitched is available on digital platforms everywhere including Bandcamp!
Following up their successful collaboration last year when Panic Lift remixed Mechanical Vein’s “TAKN’” which racked up a quarter of a million streams on Spotify, Mechanical Vein returns the favor with an industrial bass-inspired remix for “Bitter Cold.” Distortion Production’s Tragic Impulse infuse synthpop sensibilities with a hard edge into their remix of “Every Broken Place”.
Panic Lift continues offering different types of merchandise associated with each release and will be accepting pre-orders for the “Triangles” T-Shirt during the cycle for Stitched. This will be the first time this design is available online since selling out quickly into the band’s last tour.
