Rising from the ashes of Santa Fe’s beloved post-rock outfit As In We, Future Scars continues the genre-bending with the trio’s debut release, “Before, There Was Fear” out on Nov. 16th on Matron Records. Comprised of Ben Durfee on drums, Gunnar Lyon on bass and Eliza Lutz on guitar and vocals, Future Scars embodies much of the same instrumental prowess as As In We, with the notable addition of Lutz’s dynamic and powerful vocals. The EP was recorded over the summer at The Decibel Foundry, run by local audio engineer and promoter Augustine Ortiz who also mixed and mastered the debut.

Throughout its diverse and thoroughly personal five tracks, “Before, There Was Fear” is an obvious ode to transition. The songs traverse genres as disparate as folk rock to black metal and emotions ranging from triumph to despair and tell the story of personal upheaval and recovery. From the music to the EP’s title and name of the band itself, Future Scars’ debut conveys the message that by embracing the process of overcoming our misfortunes we emerge resilient and more complete than our former selves.

All who attend one of four release shows in NM and CO will receive a free copy of the EP with admission in the form of a download code printed on “Before, There Was Fear” custom matchbooks. For fans of more traditional physical media, CDs packaged with a limited-edition run of silkscreened posters will be available for sale at the show. For those excited to listen in advance, the EP will be streaming exclusively on the Santa Fe Reporter’s website for a week starting on Nov. 10th.
