SPOTLIGHTS to Release Alchemy for the Dead on April 28

Spotlights Alchemy for the Dead (April 28, Ipecac Recordings) – If you aren’t familiar with Spotlights, they are a Pittsburgh-by-way-of-Brooklyn trio, featuring married couple Mario and Sarah Quintero with drummer Chris Enriquez. Championed early on by Chino Moreno who gave them a big break by bringing them out with Deftones, that trend has continued with Quicksand, Glassjaw, Pallbearer, and others introducing the band to their fans. Consequence said of the new collection: “The thick tones and melodic vocals invoke Nine Inch Nails and the densely mixed recordings of Failure, melding elements of industrial, sludge metal, and dark alt-rock.”
