Rival Schools Unite!

Those of you who appreciate great post-hardcore music (yes, both of you) will be happy to know that Walter Schreifels, the driving force behind Quicksand and several other legendary New York bands, has got a new gig: Rival Schools.

There are two tracks available for streaming here (RealAudio format, sadly), and I think it's safe to say that if you enjoyed Quicksand, you'll love Rival Schools. A split with One Line Drawing is due out in June on Some Records, and their debut full-length, "United by Fate," is scheduled for release on July 31 on Island.
