One of Chicago's most singular, distinctive bands is post-everything act Anatomy of Habit, who concoct a delectable sonic witches' brew comprised of doom metal, shoegazer, goth, industrial, ambient, and hardcore. Last year's self-titled debut -- two tracks, 34 minutes -- caused a great deal of excitement for its serpentine, terrifying mood pieces. They'll be back with a new 12-inch EP, titled After The Water/Then Window, which, according to the Bloodlust newsletter sent out last week, has been sent to the pressing plant. (Bloodlust is the label of Habit/Bloodyminded mainman Mark Solotroff). Any word of a release date, and we pass it on to you. Anatomy of Habit play with Chord and Jon Mueller at The Hideout on Saturday, May 12. Pencil this show in, because it will no doubt be a memorable show.
