Vacation Streams New Single “Rare Earth” Off Upcoming LP

Cincinnati, OH’s Vacation has announced the release of their new album, Rare Earth. The full-length will be released on May 3rd via local Cincinnati label Feel It Records. It was produced and mixed both by the band and Sam Richardson.

Friend of the band Amos Pitsch (Tenement, Dusk) penned the below description of the new release:

“Vacation’s new album Rare Earth comes at a time when the powder keg of civilization as we know it is particularly vulnerable to the spark that swallows our very existence. Rare Earth is an album that exists on account of this fact; lyrically and sonically in meditation of it. It’s an album that evokes at once the ominous churning of the Bizarros, the drone & dirge of Screaming Urge, and the melodic cushion of the Replacements’ tender years. Nine albums into their discography, Vacation remain true to shrill atmospheric ambience in tribute to Pere Ubu while retaining the hard-edged accessibility that was signed, sealed, and delivered to sensitive degenerates by the likes of the Ramones and Guided By Voices. Rare Earth delivers all of this in a uniquely sparkling package; almost tactile in relation to their live experience. It’s this Cincinnati power-quartet’s most explosive album yet out Spring 2024 on Feel It Records.”
