The one album release happening this week comes to us from Allies Always Lie. This is a five-piece post-hardcore band out of SLC comprising Justin Castrillo, Ihan Wessman, Ian Smith, Kyler Matthews and Nick Lord. They've been playing locally for over a year and gained a pretty decent following; they even had a single back in July 2015 called "This Kingdom Is Yours." Now the group is primed to release their debut EP, Nodus Tollens, which you can already snag on Bandcamp. You can grab a physical copy of the album at The Loading Dock tomorrow night as the band performs with Hands of the Martyr, The Glass House, Adashore, and No Safe Way Home opening. Tickets are $10 and the show  starts at 7 p.m.


Love music, head out, buy local!
