The path of All The Saints is one of a band that has almost deliberately hid in plain view. The story is simple: Three Alabama kids raised on a diet of Crimson Tide football and loud “college rock” move to the big city of Atlanta in the early aughts. From here they were noticed by stalwart label Touch & Go and hold the distinction of being the final band being “signed” to the label before Corey decided to shudder daily operations. The next decade showed a band not just improving what they do, but instead almost expanding their performances to cinematic war zones. For a three piece, you’d close your eyes and think a batallion of marauders were just around the bend. For those who relished their gigs, their live performances became infrequent occurences. Then in a moment of weed inspired clarity, Chunklet decided to step in and suggest to the band recording a full length with producer Jason Kingsland. Jason’s noted for recording records by Deerhunter and Band of Horses amongst a zillion credits. Go look him up on Discogs. But in the living room to Chunklet CEO Henry Owings’ house, ATS, Henry and Jason sat down to discuss what has become the band’s third full length “Look Like You’re Going Somewhere.” Recorded in three days in the Maze Studios over in Cabbagetown, ATS plowed through tracking and overdubs. Over the following months, the record was finished and boy howdy, did they turn in a ringer. In parts sounding like Spacemen 3, The Jesus Lizard, Sonic Youth and Sleep all rolled into one, “Look Like You’re Going Somewhere” is the record that ATS was destined to make. And now you, dear listener, get to soak in the closest simulacrum to the band’s unstoppable live performances. Sit down. Pay attention. Soak it up.

*Holy fuck, I forgot how good All The Saints is.  I was fortunate enough to see them open up for These Arms Are Snakes over a decade ago and was absolutely stoked to see that they are still active.  Look Like You're Going Somewhere is the band's latest LP, which was released via Chunklet Industries on July 5th, 2019.  On Look Like You're Going Somewhere, All The Saints offer up eight tracks of hazy and psychedelic sounding post punk, grunge, and shoegaze.  Overall, Look Like You're Going Somewhere makes for an awesome listen!  Highly recommended!  Enjoy!
