Athens post-punk trio Dead Neighbors have kept their sophomore LP on the shelf for nearly a year. While the band was busy touring and trying to find a label, its most poignant and compelling work to date has been floating just beneath the surface, waiting to emerge. Sonically, Dead Neighbors remain anchored by a slack-rock sound that occasionally veers into the realms of emo and punk.
