Plague Vendor have released 'All Of The Above', the second taste from their upcoming new album 'By Night'. The brooding track is an internal monologue (“Am I just losing my mind? Am I just passing the time? Am I just falling in love? Or am I all of the above?”) disintegrating over a sci-fi punk drumbeat, and follows the recently released raw, vital track 'New Comedown.'

'By Night' is set for release on June 7 via Epitaph Records. The 10-song set was produced by John Congleton (St Vincent, Sharon Van Etten, Chelsea Wolfe) and recorded at legendary EastWest Studios (Brian Wilson, Ozzy Osbourne, Iggy Pop). The album is the follow up to their 2016 debut full-length 'BLOODSWEAT' and their widely-acclaimed debut EP 'Free to Eat'.
Plague Vendor is Brandon Blaine (vocals), Michael Perez (bass), Luke Perine (drums and percussion) and Jay Rogers (guitar). A fearless our-way-is-the-hard-way work ethic and famously physical live shows won the Southern California-based band a ferocious fan base and place of pride on the Epitaph Records roster. 'By Night' sees Plague Vendor stretch and warp their songs, discovering a merciless sense of tension and apprehension that set every moment on edge. It captures the feeling of ruin and regeneration, of charisma and catastrophe and of slashing at-the-night with nothing but pure electricity.
With Congleton’s precision production, Plague Vendor found their own way between the powerful-but-too-polished sound of right now and the engaging-but-aging reinterpretations of classic punk/rock albums of the 60s and 70s. Congleton’s limitless encouragement also led Plague Vendor to do things they never did before: chorused bass in endless waves, lightning-strike flashes of synth, motorik man-machine drums that sound inhuman and human at once and even a string section that’ll be a surprise if they ever do it live.
If 'BLOODSWEAT' was a primal scream, 'By Night' would be a precision attack. Album Pre-Save / Pre-Order HERE
