SHAME (a gallery + album release event) will feature exhibitions by .meth’s Seb Alvarez, Chris Fox and Eric Olsen, and performances by .meth, SeeyounextTuesday, Deaf Club and Usurp Synapse.

Speaking on the announcement, Seb comments: “We are so incredibly excited to present our album release event for our new record SHAME.
Thalia Hall has always been one of our favorite venues in Chicago and
being able to share the stage with bands and artists we all grew up
listening to makes the night that much more special to us. It’ll be my
first time presenting my physical art in a show setting, along side
other artists and friends I have a lot of admiration for. We invite
everyone to come celebrate with us on February 2.”

Of SHAME, he continues: “SHAME is a record that’s hard
for me to pin point. It took a collective toll on everyone involved.
The five years between this record and our last were mentally
exhausting. What came out of it though was something we all agree is our
strongest work to date and sonically the closest representation of us
as a group. Everything is much more dense, self destructive and visceral
than anything we’ve put out prior and we cannot wait to get this thing
out into the world.”
