Self Defense Family to release When The Barn Caves In, tour (2015)

Recorded with renowned engineer and producer J. Robbins (Jets to Brazil, The Dismemberment Plan, Promise Ring, etc.) When The Barn Caves In is the latest release from post-hardcore musical collective Self Defense Family. Boasting two of the band’s most accomplished songs, this record seems destined to become a signal release for the band. Robbins’s production imbues the songs with warmth and size while the band lays down some of their most mature, personal, and emotionally wrought songwriting.
This two-song single, “When The Barn Caves In” b/w “Alan” is due out November 27 via Brooklyn label Iron Pier (Wild Moth, Hollow Sunshine, Weed Hounds) as a 7” vinyl single, digital download, limited cassette, and with an accompanying limited photo book.
Self Defense Family released their third LP Heaven is Earth (Deathwish) in June 2015. Iron Pier previously released the band’s Duets MLP, which AV Club praised as one of the best albums of 2014, and also put out the fan favorite You Are Beneath Her EP in 2013. The band will tour California in December with this release in tow – see tour dates listed below.
