One of the more beloved and influential collectives of basement dwellers to emerge from the Hub City in the last two decades has been Lifetime…and in agreement are the slew of elegantly disheveled, break-neck punk outfits with pop sensibilities that have followed the lead of Ari Katz and Dan Yemin (Kid Dynamite, Paint It Black).
10 years separated Lifetime’s Jersey’s Best Dancers and its well-received 2007 self-titled full length, and though a series a handful of festival dates (including Riot Fest 2015) and shows with The Bouncing Souls and other luminaries of the east coast underground followed in the years to come, new recorded music from the band and Katz himself was nowhere to be found (Yemin has released a series of 7-inches with Paint It Black during that period, the latest coming in 2013).
That is until now, as the New Brunswick bred, New York-honed, and soon to be North Carolina based Don Giovanni Records announced on Monday, Oct. 26th that it would be releasing the debut album of Mitylion, the new Katz-fronted project, on Nov. 27th.
“Very excited to announce that well be releasing the debut album from Mitylion, the new project from Ari Katz,” read a statement from Don Giovanni. “Ari has been working on this record for over 3 years and I’m extremely proud to be able to share a song from it with everyone! More info including pre-order info coming soon!”
The collection’s title is Nite Flite and you can stream the accompanying lead single “My Yard Is On”, an electrically charged and fuzz-smothered pop-rock concoction, below.
Stay tuned for more on Mitylion, including pre-order information, as it is unveiled by Don Giovanni.
