Santa Rosa, CA’s fast rising poppy post-hardcore band, Couteaux, is set to release their debut EP ‘Sail West to Reach the East‘ via Bandcamp today, Saturday June 30th 2012. The band also has a CD release show planned for today at Aubergine in Sebastopol, CA. A limited run of Tshirts have also been printed for the Saturday show.

Digital and Physical copies as well as bundle packages will also be available starting today.
Over the last few months leading up to the release of the EP, Couteaux has teamed up with Sceneessence.com for an exclusive stream of the track ‘Cease-Fire‘ (http://sceneessence.com/?p=2042). Immediately following that, the band was features in Alternative Press Magazine (June issue, #287.2) as well as on Altpress.com with another exclusive stream of the track ‘The Disconnect’ ( http://www.altpress.com/apr/artist/issue_287_june_2012/20597/), and most recently the band were listed as the Featured Band of the Day over at Half Stack Local Music Press (http://www.halfstackmusicpress.com/?p=97). With the promising features and write ups and constant comparisons to the likes of Dance Gavin Dance, Lower Definition, Senses Fail, Tides of Man and more, it’s only a matter of time before Couteaux breaks out of the underground.
