Get Knee-Deep in the Hoopla With Carved Up’s “We Built Riff City”

Decibel‘s publisher, editor-in-chief and managing editor are all baseball guys, but our art director quietly maintains an fierce allegiance to hockey — particularly the Flyers — so we’re sure he’s psyched about the hopefully unironic image of southeast Pennsylvania noise/hxc trio Carved Up above.  Debut full-length Matador is dropping on Texas-based Crowquill Records on November 13, and we have a red-hot track in the form of excellently titled “We Built Riff City.”

Preorder Matador here, then scroll down to sample “We Built Riff City” and some fall tour dates, many of which are with local dB fave Die Choking.
