We here at Forged Artifacts are very psyched to be releasing Ripple, the new album from Minneapolis band Panther Ray. While this is the band's third full length record, Ripple is very much a new band with a new sound. After a few lineup changes and some time between their last album, this collection finds the band delivering their songs with a reinvigorated sense of urgency and kinetic energy . With psychedelic flourishes, crushing, buzz-saw guitars and earworm melodies, Ripple certainly finds Panther Ray in top form. We'll be releasing the album worldwide on April 24, digitally and limited edition vinyl.

We are very honored to announce we will be releasing the debut album from Iles entitled, Apartments. Some of the songs you will hear within this collection were six years in the making and have traveled across the country to come to the iteration you will find here. The songs are harsh, melodic and beautiful. They are hushed and haunted. We can't wait for you to dive into this record! We'll be releasing Apartments digitally and on limited edition cassette tapes. You can hear the first via VICE below.
