SoCal rock quartet Culprit are exclusively streaming their new EP opener and title track "Totem" on AltPress. Produced by Dryw Owens (From Indian Lakes, Consider The Thief) and Erik Ron (I The Mighty, Panic! At The Disco, VersaEmerge), Totem will be released in August on Easy Killer Records & Apparel, making it the follow-up to 2011’s Analogue and 2012's single, "Knock On The Sky."
Speaking on the meaning of Totem, vocalist Travis Powell said, “In the movie Inception, the characters use objects referred to as ‘totems’ to keep them grounded within their dreams. Music is my totem, it’s what keeps me from losing sight on what is important.” Guitarist Brian Fulda added, “We are able to understand each other a lot better as people because of this writing process, and the time it took to reach that point was essential, even if it took us a little over two years to complete. I think recording with Dryw Owens only furthered this level of comfort and understanding.”
Pre-orders will launch next week via the label. A music video and record release show can be expected to follow. Head below to stream the single.
