A Wingless King arrives on Leap Day

Writ On Water has just posted a quick note on their MySpace page, saying that A Wingless King — their first new release in 7 years — will be released on February 29, 2008. Also arriving on Leap Day will be reissues of Sylph and the Pelléas EP, as well as a redesigned website (from which you’ll be able to download all of these lovely tunes).

Until then, you can listen to ​“Dead Give Away,” the first single from A Wingless King — and proof that the years haven’t dulled the group’s darkly atmospheric take on post-punk one bit — at their MySpace page.
