    Trey Gruber, the singer of Chicago band Parent, died in 2017 at the age of 26 after a years-long battle with alcohol and heroin addiction. Gruber left a treasure trove of unreleased recordings. Gruber’s mother, along with his former partner Jessica Viscius, has worked to release this material in the time since. After going through piles of home tapes, live recordings, and studio sessions, an official tracklist was chosen. The result is the double LP Herculean House Of Cards — 26 songs in total — a song for each year Trey lived. The official release date is June 28, 2019 by Numero Group.

    All headlines use tight-not-touching Kabel Black (with the exception of a few lowercase letters which indeed touch). The whole aesthetic is definitely a 1970s callback, which is a fitting companion to the music. (Kabel Black saw loads of use in the 70s and was usually spaced similarly.)

      Puts me a “little” in mind of these posters from a few years ago: www.creativereview.co.uk/wo…
