The Buildings to hold launch party for new album ‘Heaven is a Long Exhale’ at Club Matryoshka — here’s how to join

Filipino indie rockers The Buildings have announced an online launch party for their forthcoming sophomore album, Heaven is a Long Exhale

Titled Melting the Goblin, the event will be held on 6 June (7PM PHT/SGT, 8PM JST) via Club Matryoshka, a virtual club that’s hosted on a private Minecraft server. 

Co-presented with Japanese label Call And Response Records, recording studio and homebrew bar Malabong Lababo, Tokyo-based record shop SUBstore, and cult Manila venue Mow's, the launch takes place in "an expansive, fantastic landscape inspired by the album", according to the band.
