Vancouver’s heavy melodic mixture of post-hardcore sludge Dyatlove released their debut self-titled EP this past May. The EP was recorded at Rain City Recorders with Matt Roach over the course of a few days (watch Make of… Video here). This is an EP that requires attention to take in, with each song taking the listener on a ride with its complex lyrical content.
Today, the band announces the debut EP will be available on cassette version on August 31st from Coup Sur Coup Records along with featuring the exclusive bonus track ‘Die! Kill! Pig!’.
The cassette version is available for pre-order at the following link: https://coupsurcoup.bandcamp.com/album/s-t
Dyatlove guitarist Rikki Jennings–Buford comments:
“We are all super excited to have the cassette release with Coup Sur Coup. Max has supported us from day one and it’s a great working relationship. Even more so we are pumped for everyone to get to hear the bonus track ‘DIE! KILL! PIG!’ It’s a song we are proud of and we are ready for it to be out in the world. Be ready for some more treats after the official release date!”
Coup Sur Coup Records’ Max Cayer adds:
“Vancouver’s Dyatlove brings the perfect balance between sludge and shoegaze. Somewhere between Cult of Luna/Khoma & Hum. It’s a proven fact that the Pacific Northwest always was a hotbed for heavy music, lots of rainy days enable groups to lock up in rehearsal spaces and hack out heavy, intense music. Dyatlove is a testament to that. They’ve put their own twist on the genre, hints of post-hardcore, Emo, and atmospheric heaviness. I’m super proud to be involved in making this release happen, they are right at home with Coup Sur Coup…” I think it’s a testament to the quality of the music to say that after dubbing the tapes, I still want to listen to the album.”
For fans of Converge, Deafheaven, Thrice, and Explosions In The Sky, Dyatlove‘s debut EP is available on Spotify, Apple Music, Bandcamp HERE.

Dyatlove is a passionate foray into the realm of morose singer-songwriter overtones set alongside heavy music. Longtime friends Sam Caviglia (guitar/vocals) and Rikki Jennings-Buford (guitar) bonded over bands such as Sonic Youth, PJ Harvey, and Pinback.
This array of influences drives the diversity of Vancouver, Canada’s Dyatlove, who don’t feel the need to pigeon hole into a particular genre. From sad songs to crushing sludge metal to 2-minute hardcore songs, Dyatlove conveys emotion and brings the heavy with drop A tuning.
Starting individually, the band works on riffs and ideas, eventually bringing them together to be fleshed out further. As full believers of limitless creativity, they don’t tie themselves to classic song structures. The lyrics come from many places, some are stories, some are personal experiences. There are songs about love of family, songs about loss, songs about anger and songs about struggles and addictions. Although varied in the subject matter they all have one thing in common, feeling.
Performing with the same intense passion and emotion that they bring to the jam space, Dyatlove intends to really connect to their fans, and show what their songs mean to them. With Rob Sheldrick (drums) and Justin Lacey (bass), the quartet delivers with an infectious openness and energy. Their self-titled, debut EP is being released on May 29, 2020 with the cassette version being released by Coup Sur Coup Records that will feature an exclusive bonus track ‘Die! Kill! Pig!’.
