In 1947 Evelyn McHale took a swan dive off the observation deck of the Empire State building (spoiler alert: she died) and was immortalized in this Robert Wiles photograph. It's about time someone writes a song about her.
Enter the Parenthetical Girls with "Evelyn McHale," the first song from their five-part (!) twelve-inch EP series on their Slender Means Society imprint. Not released in stores and limited to either digital download or a limited vinyl pressing, the records will be spaced out over 15 months, and when finished, they'll be compiled as a proper album under the name, Privilege.
Limited to 500 physical copies per EP, the 12"s will each feature original art by renowned Swedish illustrator Jenny Mörtsell, and will be hand-numbered in the blood of their respective band members.
Just like KISS did for their comic book! Part one of their series, Privilege: Pt. 1 - On Death & Endearments will be out on February 23rd.
