Today, we’re premiering a brand new single and an accompanying music video from New York-based band On the Cinder.

For you vinyl nerds: there will 300 copies of the first pressing of the album. 175 will be an exclusive color and will be shipping out as part of the A-F Records subscription. The remaining albums will be an alternate variant and you can pre-order your copy of Sedentary Escape today!
The band had the following to say about the creation of the new release:
“We were writing our third LP when the pandemic hit and the Great Pause began. And like everything else, we put the album on hold to write a new project that was tonally dynamic and to express a more complicated narrative than we’ve tried before. The three of us committed to a writing exercise that saw lyrical content coming from each of us and some bizarre musical references to make a diverse batch of songs that tell a cohesive story that is meant to be played straight through. The whiteboard in the practice space was a disaster. There were meticulous arguments over word choices. But we took the time to challenge ourselves to be more personal in ways we’d never been comfortable enough to do before.”
