NYVES (pronounced “Knives”), the electronic music duo featuring Ryan Clark (Demon Hunter) and Randy Torres (ex-Project 86), has released their debut LP, ‘Anxiety.’

‘Anxiety’ is now available on limited edition vinyl and CD via the Spartan Records store, as well as on iTunes, Bandcamp, Spotify, Google Play, Amazon and SoundCloud.

The project, which Diffuser calls, “a clear musical reinvention for Clark and Torres,” has already been featured on ESPN and Huffington Post.

NYVES has been tapped as a supporting act on IAMX’s ucpoming west coast fall tour. See dates below. The band will also perform a hometown show at Seattle’s Capitol Hill Block Party on July 25 with Ratatat, Father John Misty, TV On The Radio, Built To Spill and many more.

After sixteen combined releases and over 850,000 records sold, Ryan Clark (lead vocalist/songwriter of Demon Hunter) and Randy Torres (former lead guitarist/songwriter of Project 86) faced no pressure to reinvent themselves. In tremulous musical times, the two artists represent time-tested stability on all fronts: consistent releases, unrelenting touring, critically adored records, unwavering album sales, and rapidly compounding fan adoration. With no ulterior motives for a divergent project, NYVES emerged from completely unadulterated intentions. What began as a cathartic outlet centered on a mutual love for moody, electro-rock music resulted in one of the most gorgeous full-length records of the year. Dark, pulsing soundscapes are woven together by Clark’s instantly identifiable vocals; resonate layers are balanced by Torres’s crystal clear and expert production; and high levels of experimentation are outweighed only by melodic sensibility and sonic accessibility.

“I’ve been playing/writing hardcore and metal for the past 20 years, so when the chance to do something completely different presented itself, I jumped at the opportunity. With NYVES, I can channel my inspirations into something new, and it fulfills a different side of my creativity. Randy came to me with some amazing ideas — the kind of songs I’d hear in my head when I imagined doing something different,” says Clark.

“We share so many musical influences, and we’ve always wanted to do a project together,” adds Torres. “The artists that influenced NYVES have amazing sounding records and that became a driving force in the process of creating this record — to create something equally as great.”
