Due out May 5 via ECB&B and Exploding In Sound Records (Pile, Krill, Ovlov) via limited edition 7″ and digital (pre-order) and the two bands will be hitting the road together for a week of regional shows in support of the EP, kicking off tomorrow with the EP’s release show at Shea Stadium in Brooklyn. Following the premiere of Flagland’s new single “Awesome Song, Kerry Jan” on Stereogum and Washer’s “Joe” via underground taste makers AdHoc, the bands are excited to share the remaining EP tracks “Lay Down With Me and Die” (Flagland) and “Clid” (Washer) via Consequence of Sound.

Staples of the up-and-coming DIY scene, Washer and Flagland have developed their own sound within Brooklyn’s congested underground, a scrappy blend of punk, garage, indie, jangly sludge, avant-pop, and noise that is praised by their peers, audiences, and venues alike. Flagland and Washer have played countless shows, molding their sounds with infectious earworm hooks, crushing riffs, and dynamic songwriting that is undeniably memorable and filled with an earnest sense of heart. Flagland and Washer are a match made in heaven, a diabolical union that combines their brilliant brands of indie rock and nuanced punk with a jittery sense of purpose and that can only come from the chaotic and panic induced climate of New York City.

The split 7″ marks the finale to ECB&B’s split series, a trio of splits involving the label’s founding members, Big Ups, Washer, and Flagland. The series which began in 2013 with the Big Ups/Flagland split, continued last year with the Washer/Big Ups split 7” with EIS joining the fold. This year marks the glorious conclusion with Washer and Flagland, two of the cities hardest working indie-punk / garage-grunge bands.
