Minneapolis progressive pop duo Elite Gymnastics are back with Ruin 3 & 4, the companion pieces’ to last year’s Ruin 1 & 2. The two installments will be released separately, with Ruin 3 now available as a free download via the band’s website. It contains remixes of their tracks by How To Dress Well, CFCF, Physical Therapy, and LOL Boys, among others. As a preview, stream CFCF’s remix of “Here, In Heaven” below.
Available May 8th, Ruin 4 comes in the form of CD compilation featuring the Ruin 3 remixes as well as two unheard originals from the Ruin sessions. In addition, the package includes a high-quality t-shirt, and packaging that lovingly crafted to meet to the high standards of both band and label. Pre-orders are now ongoing via Acéphale’s webstore.
In support of the releases, Elite Gymnastics will hit the road this spring for their first-ever tour, opening for Sleigh Bells. Check out the schedule below.
