Louisville punk band Xerxes 2014 sophomore full length is backed by guitarist Will Allard, bassist Joseph Goode and drummer Ben Sears (who also plays alongside Allard in Whips/Chains). with a new line-up and some years removed from their young, violent hardcore days, Collision Blonde's instrumental prowess sounds less like their elder contemporaries and more a cleaner tone reminiscent of Jesus and Mary Chain and the Cure, yet sharp and uneasy in the vein of Bauhaus' early gothic post-punk edge. Tracks like "Knife" & the closing "Nosedive" are aggressively built up into a cathartic release, alluding to Ceremony, Iceage and 'mewithoutYou' at times. The album was produced by Evan Weiss (from Chicago Emo band Into It. Over It)
