Ribbon Music is pleased to announce the return of Baltimore's Lower Dens with their third album, Escape from Evil, to be released on March 31, 2015 (March 30, 2015 in the rest of the world)

On Escape From Evil, Lower Dens' Jana Hunter emerges: cerebral and hot-blooded, rash and incorruptible, and, crucially, possessing of a loud, clear voice. The album sees Hunter stepping up and taking center stage, and emboldening every aspect of the band.

Escape From Evil is a cinematic, tonally rich work. The sounds are clean and warm. The pulse of the album is strong. Melodies are potent and songs are physical. Lyrics are direct, frank confrontations with life's common crises. The album title is brazen, and along with the grimly funny title of lead single, "To Die in L.A.", almost theatrical.

Lower Dens' 2010 debut, Twin-Hand Movement, was a stunning evolution of guitar brilliance and murky emotiveness, while its 2012 follow-up, Nootropics, was a stark, textured paean to experimental bands of the krautrock era. Escape From Evil marks a bold, monumental step forward for the band and the welcome manifestation of a singer weíve never quite seen until now.
