Beliefs are back with a new full length LP, Leaper, on the awesomely named record label Hand Drawn Dracula.
From Toronto this is the second full length from the self professed Shoegaze/Dream Pop duo.
Like most things Hand Drawn Dracula this is limited and pretty.
BELIEFS started abruptly when Josh Korody and Jesse Crowe met at good friend and former Bassist, Patrick McCormackâ€™s birthday party and couldnâ€™t stop talking about the music of the 90â€™s. Through the love of My Bloody Valentine and Sonic Youth, the memory of reverb and fuzz was revisited and Beliefs was formed.
â€śusing their seminal influences as a catalyst rather than template, their self-titled debut album is a frighteningly assured and expansive effort, recalls last decadeâ€™s High Water Marks, Women or Deerhunterâ€ť ~ ROUGHT TRADE (UK)
Since their formation in 2010, Beliefs have released a two song single and b-side (Untitled, 2012 HDD) as well as a full length record (self titled, 2013 HDD, Manimal, No Pain In Pop) and are currently set to release their follow up, Leaper via HDD on October 23rd, 2015. Beliefs have been lucky enough to share the stage with fantastic artists such as; A Place to Bury Strangers, Disappears, The Breeders, Toy, Algiers, Moon Duo, Beach Fossils, Suuns, and F*ck*d Up.
Beliefs are prolific artists and musicians in the Toronto music scene, with Crowe recording in projects PRAISES and ROLEMODEL, and Korody as a founding member of WISH and NAILBITER as well as producing countless projects at his Candle Recordings studio. Beliefs are now set to present Leaper at shows and to festivals such as Supercrawl, POP Montreal, and New Yorkâ€™s CMJ along side the Hand Drawn Dracula family.
