It’s called Do the Math and comes out June 10th. The a-side is from last year’s exceptional See the Light album while the b-side is a previously unreleased original titled “Connect the Dots” from their See The Light recording sessions. Read what drummer Vinnie Fiorello had to say about this single below:
“The song is an important one to everyone in the band, it encapsulates being through ups and downs in life- not only remembering who was there for you but also who is still around. The notion that you have to carry this heavy weight around on your shoulders becomes null and void when you realize the people, places, and things that matter the most in your life.”
Today is release day for Banner Pilot’s new album, Souvenir, and Strung Out’s Volume One Box Set!
First up, Banner Pilot’s latest. Check out the awesome video for the album’s leadoff track “Modern Shakes,” which embraces the (drinking) history of their native Minneapolis so well. Listen to “Effigy” here and then order this surefire album-of-the-year candidate already! Lastly, Banner Pilot will be heading out on tour this May; don’t miss them!
Onwards to our second release of the day, and a colossal release it is: Strung Out’s Volume One box set. All three of their ‘90s albums have been completely remixed for this set and packaged with extensive liner notes. The box set also includes the first-ever Strung Out DVD with a full professionally recorded 2012 concert, plus a ton of footage from the ‘90s: shows, tour antics, interviews, and more. Watch the trailer, listen to a few songs, and order your copy now! Australia, Strung Out is headed your way on the Hits & Pits Festival! Check their tour dates here.
Last Fall, SUNDOWNER was on tour and made a pit stop to do some live recordings with the folks at Little Elephant in Toledo, OH. Chris McCaughan recounts, "They record high quality video sessions in the living room of their house. I performed four songs and in the end we thought the audio recordings turned out awesome too. So they’ll be rolling out the video footage and thanks to the lovely people at Fat Wreck, the audio tracks will come out as a 7-inch.” The release date is June 10th, but look out for the pre-order next week! In the meantime, you can watch SUNDOWNER perform a live version of Neon Fiction’s "Cemetery West.”
