“Hit By A Bus” imagines calling up an old friend, only to be told they have died. The chorus -- “If I die tomorrow / please just don’t forget to sing” -- is an admonition to live life to the fullest and share it with others, a sentiment at the center of Erin Walter’s humanist ministry.
«Arthaus Rock» is the first song we've released since our debut cassette, «At the Wörthersee Hotel», from 2011. It comes with a B-side called «Rings Hollow». Both are filled with distorted guitars, strange bells and haunting echoes. They're taken from our new album, which is due out on June 25th.
Hi I'm Scott Martin! I'm the singer, drummer, guitarist, bassist, songwriter, just everything for The Tar Sands. I got sick of playing with people who didn't wanna play rowdy fuzzed out garage punk so I DIY'd My debut album, Unfiltered is all me, and all dirty, greasy, gross tones & themes. Enjoy!
