    The Antlers previewed their forthcoming Burst Apart by performing it in its entirety at SXSW. The follow up to 2009's Hospice was first heard at NPR's showcase at the Parish.

    Hospice received critical acclaim, as it was an allegorical narrative regarding an abusive relationship. There is an altruistic essence within concept albums that allows listeners to fully experience the story. It's no surprise that there is such a high level of anticipation for Burst Apart's May 10 release. It shares its predecessors sequential qualities as its tracks progress with noticeable emotional growth.

    While it's typical to be disappointed when a performer avoids playing their classics, the audience at the Parish welcomed The Antlers' unique treat.
