Big news! We’re excited to announce that our next EP, “A Matter of Style,” will be released under our new band name, Killer Workout. We’ve been hard at work writing tunes that evolve our style, and these songs needed a new name. We can’t wait to share our work with you, so join us at The Sunset on Sat. Mar. 18th, 2017 for Killer Workout’s first EP release show.
We had a terrific time playing The Spud Goodman show on NWCZ with guests Tom Arnold and Marc Maron. Here’s a live video of our performance. It’s the title track from our latest album Never The Place. You can listen to the full show here.

Sean Jewell from The Stranger reviews “Clock Is Tickling”
“On Clock Is Ticking, austere vocals and spatial synths dance with anti-clockwise drums and hi-toned bass riffs…The West jam like post-punk is a new idea…this EP is space odyssey clean from the recording to the Swiss-modern cover art.” -Sean Jewell
Clock Is Ticking is out on Bandcamp, iTunes, and Amazon. If you’d like to purchase one of the 150 limited edition cassettes click here. Your purchase comes with an immediate download of the EP. Thanks for listening and remember to turn it up loud.
Our next Seattle show is Sat. Oct. 19th at the High Dive. Last time, we nearly sold the place out and we’re hoping to pack it to the gills again. It will be a night of terrific local bands (Ever-so-Android & Death By Stars) and nothing but dance, dance, dance.
