Changes are in store for Angwish with a new album and tour in the works

A new year marks changes for Charlotte alternative-rock band Angwish. Founder and frontman Bryan Bielanski will be embarking on an indefinite nationwide tour following the February release of the band’s seventh album, “Rock and Roll Destroyed My Life.” A cd release show is scheduled for The Milestone (3400 Tuckaseegee Rd.) February 25. That show will also mark the end of the group’s longstanding lineup of Bielanski and bassist/backing vocalist Rachael Malmberg Harper. The pair has been playing together (with a succession of drummers) since they were teenagers.
Longtime fans will be happy to hear that Malmberg does appear on the upcoming album. “I wasn’t going to let him leave without recording it with me,” she says. She adds that it leans towards the heavier side, but features fewer of her Kim Deal-like backing vocals. “(It’s) very bittersweet for us. I will miss playing with Bryan, but he is ready to take it to the next level.”

That next level is a commitment to the road. “I am really just going to be nomadic and tour until I run out of money,” Bielanski says.

Angwish (pictured above) recently released a video for the song “Basikly I’m Lost” from its album “Into the Void.” You can watch it here.

There are a few more chances to see Angwish before it heads North. It plays The Milestone on January 20, Snug Harbor February 15, The Milestone February 25 (with Malmberg), and again March 3 for the Nirvana tribute.
