|New Geoff Rickly mixtape|
2013-06-22 by William Lim | 15 Comments
|Former Thursday frontman Geoff Rickly has released his second solo mixtape, entitled Darker Matter/// Mixtape 2, for free via his Bandcamp page. The recordings further demonstrate Rickly's newfound musical direction since departing Thursday, which evidently incorporates a dark folktronica aesthetic and experimental arrangements. Anthony Green (of Circa Survive) previously commented via his Twitter page that the tape gave him "goose bumps on my ear boners".|
Rickly is currently touring nationally with Vinnie Caruana (of The Movielife and I Am the Avalanche), having completed recent tours with Taking Back Sunday's John Nolan in May and a club tour with Anthony Green late last year. Since Thursday's demise, Rickly's work in addition to his solo activity includes a stint as vocalist for the reunion of Ink & Dagger, and work with the supergroups Cut Throat Tactics (with Ben Weinman of The Dillinger Escape Plan and members of Ink & Dagger) and United Nations, though little news has surfaced regarding the latter two projects. Rickly was also robbed at gunpoint around late May/early June of an iPad, iPhone, passport, wallet, credit cards, medicine and rent money.
