On April 7, Minsk will release their fifth album, The Crash and the Draw. Today, Stereogum premiered another new song from the it, “When the Walls Fell.” It’s a perfect post-metal epic. Building over the course of its 10 minute running time, the song ebbs and flows, building and contracting in heaviness. While the band were very of their time in the post-metal scene of the early 2000’s, their breakup in 2011 and subsequent reformation two years later have found them operating at an even higher level than before.
You can preorder The Crash and the Draw here before its April 7 release date.
