We Are Hex
We Are Hex
They immediately closeted themselves in a storage unit in their home town of Indianapolis. The result was a year of writing and recording, and a full-length record that never saw the light of day...because it wasn't exactly right. Early in 2008, Trevor Wathen and Matt Hagan rounded out the sound and the current lineup was formed. The four moved into a house in the foulest neighborhood in the city and turned that house into a studio.
Thus was born the Hex Haus - a moniker used for the band's homestead, studio, and record label. The band will self-release their debut full-length Gloom Bloom April 7, 2009 on thier own label, Hex Haus. On Gloom Bloom, We Are Hex experiments with noise, dance, doom and psychedelia without losing the pop sensibilities of the 50s and 60s or the urgency of classic punk. The vibe recalls the Cure, Gang of Four, PJ Harvey and the Jesus and Mary Chain. Many songs are recorded off-the-cuff, mic-in-the-middle-of-the-room, in a take or two. We Are Hex is selling all of their non-musical belongings and will begin touring extensively for all of 2009, starting in April.
They will be on the road until the van breaks down. Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply..
