AUCW6 Leak #2: Animal Empty as PJ Harvey (9/7/12)

Down By The Water. And under an Electric Light. Animal Empty aim to share their Black Hearted Love with A Place Called Home as they take on PJ Harvey for AUCW6 Night 1, on September 7th, 2012.

Having free reign to choose from All & Everyone in the rock music archives for their choice of tributes, Animal Empty crept all around In The Dark Places, pushing away the Bitter Branches and weeding out the Passionless, Pointless ideas, until finally a Beautiful Feeling finally washed over them. And, ultimately choosing to pay tribute to A Woman A Man Walked By who sings The Words That Maketh Murder pretty much proves what we’ve known all along. That Ali Ruby, is in fact, No Girl So Sweet.

Backed by AlecThe Pocket KnifeFrisch on guitar, AaronThe Slow DrugCajilig on bass, and MikeThe SoldierCraft on drums — with DennisThe Wicked TongueStringfield filling in the percussive gaps — Animal Empty are poised to recreate all of the sex, distortion, and murder that one would expect from a PJ Harvey set.

Claiming that You Said Something one time that stuck with them — Something like, “Is This Desire?” — Ali and company have vowed on September 7th to Talk To You with The Piano like This Is Love. And that night, as We Float together relishing in The Mess We’re In, we will know that Before Departure, before anyone is allowed to make their Big Exit, Animal Empty will have Written On The Forehead of everyone in attendance with White Chalk… “The End.”

Animal Empty are one of many new faces that are joining the AUCW family this year and we couldn’t be more excited for their set. Be sure to tune in tomorrow as we reveal HUMDRUM‘s secret identity and if you’re feeling like you might have a little too much Silence in your life, buy some music at the link below.

P.S. Our continued love goes out to our amazing photo shoot location, The Thaxton Speakeasy. The Thaxton was the perfect backdrop for the bands of AUCW6 and we consider ourselves eternally lucky to have been able to have our way with the place. See you there soon?
