Ist Ist at Rough Trade

Following the recent release of their new EP, Everything Is Different Now Ist Ist play Nottingham’s Rough Trade on 15 March. 

The band received their national radio debut on BBC Radio 6 courtesy of Steve Lamacq and continued to outperform established touring artists for much of 2018, including two sold out hometown shows. Whilst much of the untamed ferocity from the band's early live outings has subsided, their stagecraft, intensity and presence has never wavered.

'Everything Is Different Now' represents genuine evolution from the band. Their first release as a quartet; drum-heavy opener 'Exist' kicks things off and is followed by the inward-looking 'Son Is The Father.' The duelling guitar blast of 'Jennifer's Lips' is unquestionably the band's most radio-friendly effort to date. 'I Want To Disappear' channels claustrophobic ambient sounds with electronic drums before the brooding crescendo of 'Undignified' brings the EP to a close.

In keeping with previous Ist Ist releases, 'Everything Is Different Now' is available on 12" vinyl, including a limited edition translucent red colourway, CD and across all digital platforms.
