Nathan Leigh & The Crisis Actors are excited to announce their new EP House On Stilts, set to be released on November 19th, 2021House On Stilts serves as a follow up to the band’s latest full-length album, Myths, Conspiracy Theories, and Other Stuff I Made Up To Sound Interesting, which was released in April 2020. The new EP will be accompanied by a stop-motion animated short film, which Leigh began working on in 2011.

On the forthcoming EP, Leigh shares: This is a story about feeling like the world is so broken that it can never be fixed and wanting to escape and give up. The chorus to ‘Call-Out Post’ is the rejoinder to that impulse: ‘when you feel like giving up, that’s when you can’t give up.’
