Never heard of these guys before but I'm loving that song. I will definitely be checking out their record.

Glad people are checking it out! I was really caught off guard with this record.

Keagan needs to start using Athletics and Gates more often in this band's RIYLs.
Especially since that basically assures that a band is fantastic, hah. But yeah, love these guys, blew me away when I first heard them last week. Good to see them getting hyped quite a bit on here now.

I mean, yeah, they do kind of sound like both of those if you mixed them together.

Doesn't hurt the comparison that I only know the band because Athletics band members posted it and one of the songs features a Gates member, hah.

Touche. Also, side note, is this your alter-ego?

There's already a lot of songs released from this, right? I'm trying to keep track.

Burning House

Snowglobe

Death In The Snow

Scales

Did I miss anything?

Think that's everything so far.

I loved the song in the OP, but I have no interest in buying CDs. I'll wait for a vinyl release, or at least a digital release.

Hopefully working on making the vinyl a real thing within the next month or so. I'll see what I can do about a digital release.

Digital release 4/2, and vinyl release on intheclouds right around that date as well.

Really excited to hear they're working with intheclouds, they always do super cool and unique packaging and I'm expecting something amazing for this.

Based on the interview, I'd say that they really need to be more organized and get their shit together. I love their record but it seems like they don't know how to run a band -- not knowing how to market their record, when to release it digitally, tour, and even how to properly run their bandpage on facebook. Just seems like a lot of disorganization.

They've got a new PR company backing them, as well as a label to put out their album and have it's own PR done. Things will be more organized from here on out.

based on that interview and how vinyl pressing is going these days i wouldn't hold them to that april 2 date

It should be relatively close. I'm doing PR for the label. They just got the test pressing in on Friday.

one of the few times i will ever love being wrong! got any pricing worked out yet?

I thought I responded to this. Guess I forgot too, my bad! I haven't heard any price points from Dan yet, most likely 15-20 with some sweet packaging, so it's not that bad at all.
