Stranger Things soundtrack composers Survive announce U.S. tour

A little over a month ago, Survive was just a small Austin band happily chugging along creating dreamy, synth-fueled, ’80s-horror-film-inspired electronic music to very little fanfare. And then, on July 15, Netflix began streaming the sci-fi series Stranger Things. Literally overnight, Survive became one of the most sought-after indie bands in the country, with legions of new fans clamoring for its music and opportunities to see it performed live.

“It was very immediate,” Survive’s Kyle Dixon said in a recent interview with Independent. “I was camping the day the show came out, so I didn’t even have cell phone service–I was gone for the weekend. I came back home on Sunday, turned my phone back on and it was just chaos. I mean, really flattering chaos. But chaos nonetheless. I can’t turn off my phone now.”


Luckily for everybody who just learned of Survive’s existence but needs new songs, RR7349— the band’s second full-length album—will eerily materialize on the market on September 30. Here’s “Wardenclyffe,” the very Goblin-esque first track off that album:

The band is also kicking off a short nationwide tour for which they “have no idea what to expect.” It kicks off in Survive’s hometown on September 30.
