Other Lives ‘Mind The Gap’ EP Out October 23rd

Other Lives announce the release of Mind The Gap EP out October 23rd on tbd records.  The EP was recorded by the band this past summer in a studio in Sutton Courtenay, Oxfordshire, England and features the Atoms For Peace Remix of “Tamer Animals”.  The EP also features the tracks “Dead Can” which was written during the band’s recent world tour and was “mostly recorded in the van using a lap top, because we were touring so much. That’s what gives it an electro feel” along with “Take Us Alive”, which is “based on a violin loop that was written in my parents’ backyard”, explains lead singer Jesse Tabish. Look out for Other Lives back on the road on a full U.S. tour this Fall.

Henry Clay People Announce Summer Tour

With an enthralling live show that has won over countless fans and critics, Los Angeles quartet Henry Clay People are thrilled to hit the road this summer in support of their upcoming album Twenty-Five for the Rest of Our Lives.

The five-week tour beginning June 14th will see the band share the stage with Motion City Soundtrack, These United States and Futurebirds, along with their own headlining dates.

Set for a June 26th release on TBD Records, Twenty-Five for the Rest of Our Lives is a thrilling and sweaty thirty minutes of teenage restlessness. Evident in new songs “Hide” and “Friends Are Forgiving” – two of the twelve songs that make Twenty-Five for the Rest of Our Lives the bands most urgent, bratty, and melancholic record to date.

Watch the band’s montage video for “Friends Are Forgiving” here: http://vimeo.com/42134552

Spin Magazine raves “The Henry Clay People specialize in raggedy power chords and desperately boyish vocals – what Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers would sound like if they’d taken temp work and listened obsessively to Crazy Horse.”

WATERS continues tour with Delta Spirit; announces summer run with Nada Surf

WATERS is launching the second leg of their mostly sold out tour with Delta Spirit. It’s been the band’s best tour yet. They’ve really been connecting with the Delta Spirit fanbase – consistently selling loads of CDs each night and their social media numbers are building considerably. The press has been loving the WATERS opening set as well. Time Out Chicago said: “the San Francisco-based group tore through a set that sounded like a modernized rendering of Mirrorball-era Neil Young…The ’90s college-rock thrash present on tracks like ‘Back To You’ and ‘For The One’ made them irrefutable highlights, though the contrastingly subdued ‘Ones You Had Before’ demonstrated surprising versatility.”

WATERS will be headed back out on the road with Nada Surf in June. They supported Nada Surf in Europe earlier this year and were outselling them 2-1 in terms of CDs – selling 80-90 CDs each night. These new shows with Nada Surf will get the band back in many of the markets they hit last month with Delta Spirit.

Take a listen to a recent WFUV “Alternate Side” session here.

Henry Clay People to Release New Album June 26th

HENRY CLAY PEOPLE SET TO RELEASE NEW ALBUM, ‘TWENTY-FIVE FOR THE REST OF OUR LIVES,’ ON JUNE 26TH

Los Angeles quartet Henry Clay People are thrilled to announce the release of their new album Twenty-Five for the Rest of Our Lives. Set for a June 26th release on TBD Records, Twenty-Five for the Rest of Our Lives is a thrilling and sweaty thirty minutes of teenage restlessness, quarter-life malaise, and adult resignation. The new album sees not only the return of the band’s original line up, but songwriters and brothers Joey and Andy Siara rediscovering and redefining their punky roots, allowing them to craft their most urgent, bratty, and melancholic record to date.

“We wanted to finally make the record that our sixteen year old selves would have been excited about,” says Joey. “Unfortunately the only way to do so was to live for the last 13 years and get some adult suffering under our belt. Now we can direct our misguided teenage angst at our failed 20’s.”

With songs such as the rambunctious The Backseat Of A Cab, the 90’s guitar slack of Hide, the skater brat inspired The Fakers and the punk revival of EveryBandWeEverLoved, Twenty-Five for the Rest of Our Lives is a record dealing with
compromised dreams and empty bank accounts, for and by the high school Descendents devotee turned college Malkmus-minion.

In support of their TBD Records debut Somewhere On the Golden Coast, the Henry Clay People spent most of 2010 and 2011 on the road with the Drive by Truckers, Silversun Pickups and Against Me!, along with successful performances at Coachella, Lollapalooza and Austin City Limits. With an enthralling live show, HCP have built a dedicated national following of both critics and kids.

Along with The LA Times, Aquarium Drunkard, MTV News, Paste Magazine, My Old Kentucky Blog, and more, Spin Magazine raves “The Henry Clay People specialize in raggedy power chords, barreling piano, and desperately boyish vocals – what Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers would sound like if they’d taken temp work and listened obsessively to Crazy Horse.” KEXP simply says HCP create a “remarkable set of classic- sounding indie-rock with clear echoes of Pavement, the Hold Steady, the Replacements and early Built to Spill, but they find their own voice with detailed songs that split the difference between sardonic and heartfelt when describing the music scene, living in debt and working part-time, transforming everyday subject matter into raging, celebratory anthems for slacker rock ‘n’ rollers and other folks just trying to make ends meet.”

The Henry Clay People will hit the road this summer. Stay tuned for tour dates!!

New Music from White Rabbits… Album ‘Milk Famous’ out March 6th

“Drumbeats, not guitars or keyboards, come first for White Rabbits… That choice puts a spring, even a swagger, in the step of songs that could otherwise slip into indie-rock alienation”–THE NEW YORK TIMES

Brooklyn-based, Missouri-bred White Rabbits have unveiled “Heavy Metal” (download below), the opening track of the eagerly anticipated  follow-up to 2009′s critically acclaimed It’s Frightening (hailed by Jon Pareles of THE NEW YORK TIMES  as “an American sound that fortifies its brains with muscle”). The band’s third album, Milk Famous, will be released March 6 on the tbd label (with a vinyl release March 13 on White Iris) and will consist of the following songs:

Heavy Metal
I’m Not Me
Hold It To The Fire
Everyone Can’t Be Confused
Temporary
Are You Free
It’s Frightening
Danny Come Inside
Back For More
The Day You Won The War
I Had It Coming

The bulk of Milk Famous was recorded over the course of 2011 in Austin TX, and produced by Mike McCarthy with the exception “Back For More,” which was produced by the band’s own Stephen Patterson and Alex Even and recorded last November at Meth Beach in Philadelphia.

Milk Famous’ release will also be preceded by first single “Temporary.”
