POST-ROCK BAND ILYA RELEASE TWO BRAND NEW SINGLES – OUT TODAY

San Diego Band ILYA Release “Could It Be” And “Surround Me” As Bonus Tracks To An Extended Edition Of Their First Album In Close To A Decade Entitled In Blood.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

LOS ANGELES, CA (TUESDAY SEPTEMBER 30, 2014) – San Diego post-rock band ILYA (http://ilyamusic.bandcamp.com/) announced today the re-release of their third album In Blood (Extended Edition), adding two new tracks to the album. Fans who have purchased the album prior to today can go to ILYA’s online store or contact the band directly through Facebook to get links to download the new songs free. The two new titles of the two new tracks from In Blood (Expanded Edition) are “Could It Be” and “Surround Me”.

In Blood is ILYA’s first album of new material in close to a decade. Featuring dark, beautiful songs with deep attention to dynamics and mood. The album is a culmination of sounds and words so weighted you feel crushed, yet heightened by a delicate floating layer of hope, that leaves you clawing and scratching for more. An earlier version of In Blood was released regionally in and around San Diego to much fanfare this past spring. The addition of these two bonus tracks gives hints of what we might expect from the band in years to come.

ILYA’s 2003 debut, Poise is the Greater Architect was an instant global success that led to international tours of Canada, Mexico, Japan, along with sold-out shows across the U.S., and supporting such acts as The Arcade Fire and The Album Leaf. A number of songs off the album have been featured on MTV’s The Real World, Road Rules, Sorority Life, as well as a handful of skateboarding videos and independent films. Fans of Godspeed You! Black Emperor, Warpaint, Swans and Dead Can Dance will find themselves right at home here.

In 2006, with the departure of Duane Pitre and Hank Morton, the remaining members – Matthew Baker, Geoff Hill, Blanca Fowler and John Mattos – released their sophomore album, Leaving Sans-Souci, introducing a denser sound with greater emphasis on dynamics.  Flash-forward to present day: cue guitarist Demetrius Antuña (previously of Goodbye Blue MondayKATAThe Dropscience) and Carrie Gillespie Feller (of Street of Little GirlsTactical Ffever), and ILYA is reborn.
