Ex-Blood Brothers Become Past Lives

The group's name is Past Lives, and in addition to the three ex-Blood Bros, it features former Shoplifting guitar player Devin Welch.

Past Lives will make their recorded debut with an EP called Strange Symmetry, engineered and mixed by Dann Gallucci from Modest Mouse and the Murder City Devils. The EP is available for download from the band's website now, and Suicide Squeeze will release it on CD and LP on November 4.
