Hailing from Staten Island, NY, noisy indie rock quartet Cymbals Eat Guitars are following up their consistently rewarding and promising debut Why There Are Mountains with Lenses Alien, which is due out on August 30th, two weeks earlier than the previously reported date.

The band has just released Lenses Alien‘s sprawling eight-minute opener, “Rifle Eyesight (Proper Name)” available for free download. In a single track, Cymbals Eat Guitars remind us why they stood out a few years ago. It’s that striking marriage of patience and recalcitrant hyperactivity that gave Why There Are Mountains its immense replay value; it’s presence on “Rifle Eyesight” can only mean good things for Lenses Alien.
