new Niche album “Heading East” released on Retro Futurist Records

Those of us who attended a Niche show at The Jinx in July got the first chance to enjoy the band’s new record Heading East, but now the 6-song collection has been released by Retro Futurist Records, the label managed by core members of Kylesa. Heading East is available on CD or digital download for just $8. Check it out:

Niche will play a show supporting the new release on Dec. 11 at The Jinx, where they’ll be joined by Caustic Casanova (you don’t want to miss them) and the new Savannah band Wax Ligature.

Niche’s new record channels some of the best elements of 1970s rock — you can hear the sweeping guitars, the rich vocals, the organ, the psychedelic edge, but the overall effect is of an emotional, almost spiritual quest.
