Discover Trail of Dead's Jason Reece Softer Side With Midnight Masses

After falling in love with the hazy neo-soul and 60s revivalism of Rapture Ready, I Gazed At The Body, New York's own Team Love has partnered with Collect Records to deliver Midnight Masses' 4-track debut to the world this winter. The original release date of November 10th will now shift to December, with the digital version of the EP slated for 12/8 and the vinyl set for 12/15.

The news comes on the heels of The Fader's premiere of "Walk on Water," the EP-opening slow-burn featuring TV on the Radio's Jaleel Bunton. Bunton's bandmate Gerard Smith produced the entirety of Rapture Ready, which also features contributions from Katie Eastburn, Here We Go Magic's Peter Hale, and Kevin Allen and Conrad Keely of Trail of Dead.

In late 2008, Trail's Jason Reece founded Midnight Masses alongside Autry Fulbright, who enlisted the help of full-time bandmates Eric Rogers (guitar, vocals), Miyuki Furtado (drums, bass, guitar, vocals) and Destiny Montague (guitar, vocals, percussion). Midnight Masses were set to celebrate the now December-bound record's release this week with a pair of New York shows one with intricate-indie Brooklynites Mon Khmer and another supporting Art Brut with Floridian buzz beneficiaries Surfer Blood.

Midnight Masses Shows:
11-10 New York, NY Pianos (w/Mon Khmer)
11-13 Brooklyn, NY Brooklyn Bowl (w/Art Brut, Surfer Blood)
