Departures / Moose Blood
Two of the UK’s most promising up-and-coming rock acts, DEPARTURES and MOOSE
BLOOD, are teaming up to release a split EP on November 12th via No Sleep Records. The EP
features two new tracks from each band and will be available on limited edition vinyl and digital
download. Hailing from Glasgow, DEPARTURES is a melodic hardcore band that formed in
2007. The band’s unique blend of modern hardcore and rock helped them amass a following in
underground hardcore scenes in the UK and US. The band signed with No Sleep Records in the
fall of 2012 and released their sophomore album, Teenage Haze, soon thereafter.
MOOSE BLOOD got their start in 2012, writing and performing music about relationships,
friends, family and drinking coffee in their hometown of Canterbury. The band’s distinctly
British sound harkens back to the glory days of Deep Elm Records and mid 90’s emo. In only
one year the band has released two EPs, Moving Home and Boston/Orlando.
