So the holidays are around the corner and it's time to start waxing nostalgic with indie rock holiday tunes, right? Well AP has some friends with some new yuletide jams to share. Head to Brighten's AP Profile for a holiday ABSOLUTExclusive, a stream of their new song "Merry Christmas Baby," also featuring The Maine. Then, in the spirit of giving, check out our new contest from The Maine to win some of their merch. Another holiday exclusive is coming to town tomorrow!
Brighten have made "Single Millionaires" available for streaming on their myspace profile. The track is taken from the trio's latest effort, King vs. Queen, which is available now courtesy of Carbon Copy Media.
For all of you who had planned on attending tomorrow's show at the Trocadero in Philadelphia, PA with Brighten, The Morning Light, and The Maine, the show has unfortunately been canceled. Instead of wasting a day, the bands are still going to be showing up at the venue and want all the kids to meet them there. They will be meeting everyone at the venue at 6 PM and then be moving to an yet to be determined location nearby where they will be playing acoustic, selling merch, and grilling hot dogs for everyone who comes to hang out.
The Morning Light will begin their first US tour this Sunday, and will be going out with Brighten and The Maine. For all confirmed tour dates, check below; the West Coast portion will be announced shortly.
Brighten's "Ready When You Are" is available for download on the band's MySpace page for this week only. The band is currently a featured artist on MySpace along with The Streets - ya know, like on the front page and stuff.
I have posted my review for Brighten's stellar EP, Ready When You Are, right here. To accompany the review, I have made the title track off the EP a featured download. Click here (right click > save as) to directly download the song. Enjoy.
