Vancouver's Post-Punks SPECTRES "Tell Me" about Hindsight

Artoffact Records announces the November 5th release of Hindsight, the new album by SPECTRES, and releases new single “Tell Me.”

Founded in Vancouver in 2005 by vocalist Brian Gustavson, SPECTRES is commonly cited as one of the bands responsible for kicking off the renewed interest in the post-punk sound in Canada. The band spent the pandemic year off in the studio, fine tuning their craft and recording new tracks for Hindsight. The last track on the album and lead-off single, “Tell Me,” was covered by Stereogum upon release. Writer Ryan Leas noted that “Tell Me” “finds [SPECTRES] moving a bit further up the [retro] timeline, delving into some deep New Order vibes. If that kind of thing works on you the way it works on me, then you will probably think “Tell Me” is a banger.”

The album also includes three tracks recorded for hip Los Angeles radio show Part-Time Punks.

Artoffact Records is offering a clear-vinyl version of the new album, as well as CD and digital formats, t-shirts, and discounted combos. All of that is available on Bandcamp.
