Real Estate Announces New Album

re

People don’t always think very much of New Jersey, especially when its standout celebrities right now are the cast of Jersey Shore. Real Estate proved that not all that comes out of the Garden State is terrible with their first self-titled album released in 2009. Can they keep it up? We’ll find out on on Tuesday October 18th, 2011 when they release the follow-up, Days, which was recorded in Upstate New York through the late winter/spring of 2011 with Kevin McMahon.

For now, we know the album is made up of nine new recordings and a revisit of last year’s standalone single “Out of Tune.” You can listen to the first single off the record, “It’s Real,” HERE. It’s due out on September 27th in the US and October 10th in the UK. In the meantime, the band is touring around the US and Canada for the rest of July so check below to see if they’re headed near you!

Joy Formidable Support Foo Fighters on Tour

The Joy Formidable scored a very high honor when Foo Fighters’ front man Dave Grohl asked them to tour along side the heavy rock giants for a slew of East Coast tours.

The two bands will provide quite the contrast to audiences when they take the stage. While the Foo Fighters are touring behind their newest full-length, Joy Formidable is focusing more on the work of others with their new EP Roarities which features covers from The Naked and Famous and Innerparty as well as a couple live tracks.

The band also released their newest video, for the song “A Heavy Abacus” which you can see right here.

You can see the Foo Fighters and Joy Formidable in these cities:

Sept 2 Redmond, WA @ ENDFEST

Sept 4 Edmonton, AB @ Sonic Boom Festival

Sept 8 Portland, OR @ Music Fest NW

Sept 22 Cincinnati, OH @ Midpoint Music Festival

Sept 23 Philadelphia, PA @ Popped Festival!

Army Navy Release New Album, “The Last Place”

ArmyNavyPressPhoto

The California-based indie pop band Army Navy have now released their second album, The Last Place, through their own label, The Fever Zone Records! You can stream it in full at Aol Music. So you know what to expect, SPIN Magazine gave it an 8 out of 10, calling it “a feel-bad record you can actually feel good about.”  Not entirely sure what that means, but judging from the first excerpt the band has made available for download, “The Long Goodbye,” it seems that Army Navy could easily seduce you with their sweet pop tunes. The band is also set to tour throughout the second half of the year so keep your ears out for more news!

Listen to “The Long Goodbye” below:
