So Hideous readies Laurestine for Prosthetic, tours (2015)

Prosthetic Records presents Laurestine, the second full-length album by So Hideous. Out October 16 on Prosthetic, Laurestine is a masterpiece of sound and feeling that delivers on past promises and confirms the New York City band to be a true leader in its field.
Laurestine now shows the quartet – guitarist and main composer Brandon Cruz, bassist and vocalist Chris Cruz, guitarist Etienne Vazquez, and drummer Danny Moncada – building upon what it began and outshining expectations yet again. Like its predecessor, Laurestine was recorded at The Wild Arctic Recording Studio in Portsmouth, New Hampshire, with producer Dean Baltulonis (Lucero, Sick of It All, Modern Life Is War) and, like its predecessor, it features actual orchestral and choral tracks recorded by The First Light Orchestra, consisting now of thirty members – brass, strings, and vocalists, recorded at Little Field Performance and Art Space in Brooklyn, New York, by Chris Montgomery (Mumford and Sons, Lily Allen).
The first taste of Laurestine can now be experienced exclusively via Metal Injection. Hear a short excerpt of album closer “A Faint Whisper,” along with views of the artwork by Italian illustrator Daniele Serra (Shining SW), in this brand new video clip, here.
