Vagrants announce debut EP Separation, stream title track

Official press release:

Post-hardcore act Vagrants share “Separation,” streaming now on Alternative Press. Additionally, the band has announced their debut EP, Separation, will be released on April 26th via Equal Vision Records. Pre-orders are now available through MerchNOW.

Guitarist Jose DelRio shares:

‘Separation’ is a very personal track for me. Our previous vocalist was arrested right before a planned tour, and just months before going to record the EP Separation.

Honestly, things were bleak and I really wasn’t certain what the future held for myself and the band at that point. Lyrically, the song touches on a very low point in my life and also serves to connect the dots conceptually for the EP.”

Each of Separation’s five tracks is about losing someone or something close to you. An EP whose primary aim, according to DelRio, is to provide solace, comfort, and catharsis to the listener, it’s a body of work which spans many facets of alternative music but one that retains its identity and heart throughout. A sound that combines They’re Only Chasing Safetyera Underoath with the raw intensity of Taking Back Sunday and the forward-thinking nature of Circa Survive and Being As An Ocean, Vagrants’ music is taking post-hardcore to territory previously unexplored. 

Separation is the sound of a band refusing to give in and emerging victorious, and whilst its creators have had to let go of the past, in doing so, they’ve opened the door to a future bursting with promise.

Vagrants will be touring this April with The Word Alive, as well as performing at So What?! Fest in Houston. For a full list of dates, including additional shows with Of Mice & MenSecrets, and Parkway Drive, see below.
