Penguins Kill Polar Bears Release "Wish With Worry" From Upcoming Vessels & Veins EP

Gearing up for the N. American release of their sophomore EP Vessels & Veins March 22, Penguins Kill Polar Bears have released the epic new track "Wish With Worry." This, the second single from the record, comes on the heals of the EP's release in their homeland UK on February 21 and is perhaps the perfect example of their pop infused post-rock sound.

Penguins Kill Polar Bears' Sophomore EP is not just the next step in the career of Penguins Kill Polar Bears, it's a giant leap. Vessels & Veins marks the first N. American release for these Scottish Lads, announcing their signing to United States'-based Dromedary Records earlier this month.
Vessels & Veins shows a focused quartet, unassuming of what post-rock has to be. Its six sweeping compositions are guided by a youthful approach at songwriting, atmospheric yet hook-laden. Don't let the title fool you either - this album has much more than just vessels and veins. It also has heart, soul and legs to take them to next chapter of their career. If Europe's reaction holds any sway, this first true introduction of the act to North America should be welcome with open arms.

The guys are also about to hit the road in the U.K. starting Thursday.

BIO: Vessels & Veins is the second EP from Scottish post-rock monsters Penguins Kill Polar Bears. The band, formed in the winter of 2008, are Ben Proudlock (guitars, vocals), Fraser Sanaghan (guitars), Gavin Cormack (bass), and Kieran McGuickan (drums).

The EP is a sweeping masterpiece, showcasing a band that are as comfortable with experimentation as they are with tried and true rock formulas. Each track explodes into action, with sheets of reverb-laden guitars, layered over the top of throbbing percussion, and offset by Ben’s raw vocals. It’s no surprise that Aereogramme are listed as one of their major influences.
Following the release of their critically acclaimed debut EP Dawn in June 2010, the band have been busy building their profile in their home country, supporting the likes of Twin Atlantic, The Xcerts and Nine Black Alps. They’ve also sold out various headline gigs and are, in their own right, a band not to be missed. In fact, Scottish music blog Sound Surrounds recently named PKPB a Best Live Band, calling the band “explosive and a pleasure to the senses.”
One of Scotland’s most exciting young bands, Penguins Kill Polar Bears have paired up with Dromedary to release Vessels & Veins in North America as an intro to this great band. Featuring four brand-new tracks plus two remixed tracks from Dawn, the US version of the EP will be available in March of 2011 on CD and digital download.
