Spotlights’ upcoming remix EP will be titled Hanging by Faith and will be released on June 15 via Ipecac Recordings.

Brooklyn based alternative metal/post-metal outfit Spotlights have announced the release of a remix EP. It will be titled Hanging By Faith and will see release on June 15th via Ipecac Recordings. Featuring rejigged versions of songs from their recently released debut LP Seismic by artists such as Kris Dirksen and Aaron Harris (Isis, Palms), the effort will also include a cover of ‘Faith’ by The Cure. Check out the first track from the EP, ‘The Hanging (Hang Us All) Kris Dirksen Remix’, in all its ambient glory below.

“We liked the idea of changing the song titles because, while these remixes really harness the core intention of the original songs, they all took on a completely new life, and totally stand on their own, as new compositions,…The new titles were chosen by the people doing the remixes too, which we feel gives the songs even more of a personal touch.”
