It is bittersweet to say that Pianos Become the Teeth have a new album due out this fall. We started working with them in 2009 — having worked with them to release all of their recorded output since. We’ve both grown together immensely along the way. We can consider them to be at the foundation of everything our little label comes from and has become; we wouldn’t be where we are without them. They’re some of our favorite people and we wish them nothing but the best as they continue to grow.
Their new album Keep You is available for pre-order now via Epitaph Records and you can hear a new song from it — “Repine” over on Noisey.
Sincerely,
Seth & Kevin

Empire! Empire! "Title Contest"! »

empireempireband:

Ok, time for the contest we were talking about! I am a huge fan of referencing works that I love in our song titles. So much so, that a large body of our discography pays homage to other things that have inspired me or things I love, like quotes from RPGs, books, TV shows/movies, etc. So here…

Here’s a fun contest you can enter to win some cool Empire! Empire! (I Was a Lonely Estate) prizes!

POZ BandsOnBands: Prawn On Bombay Bicycle Club

Monday means BandsOnBands, and we’re excited to be posting the new PropertyOfZack feature today with Jamie Houghton of Prawn. The band just put out a great record called Kingfisher, so check that out here.

In this week’s feature, Jamie talks about his love for Bombay Bicycle Club. Listen to songs by the band here and check out what Jamie had to say about one of his biggest influences below!

Topshelf Tour: AGBPOL, DMND YTH, Prawn, Field Mouse

From Jamie Houghton:

All of Prawn became fans of the London, England indie rock band Bombay Bicycle Club about three years ago. When our singer Tony first told me about the band, I was hesitant because their name comes from a chain of Indian restraints. I love Indian food so they had a lot to live up too. When I first heard their song “Shuffle,” I was pleasantly surprised. 

I am actually a duel citizen of the States and England, so I frequently visit Britain. The last time I was over there I went hunting for their vinyl. I visited about five or six different stores before I found a small record shop in London that was able to order it for me.

Updated flyer for our Boston record release show. The Offseason sadly had to drop due to an injury, so we’ve added our friends Foreign Tongues in their place. They also have a new release out now on No Sleep, pick it up at the show. Get there early (in case it fills up…) and catch all the bands!
P.S. We’re bringin back an oldie-but-a-goodie at this gig ;)
