Recorded at StudiLaroche in the band’s hometown of Atlanta, GA, Almost Nothing will be released on June 1, 2013 on 12-inch and digital formats by the group’s own Irrelevant Recordings. The LP will be limited to a pressing of 250 on black vinyl and pre-orders for the album will go live within the next few weeks. Places To Hide has also launched a Kickstarter campaign to help fund the record. Go here to contribute. Only seven days remain!
On a related note, you can check out two additional new tracks from Almost Nothing. Go to Places To Hide’s Bandcamp to stream “Love Song” or watch the music video for “Michael Jordan,” which can be viewed on YouTube or Kickstarter.
Much like the city in which it resides, Atlanta’s Places To Hide boasts an undeniably soulful swagger. It’s gritty, loud and fun – and maybe just a bit reckless – but there’s also a sweetness and vulnerability to the outfit’s debut full-length, Almost Nothing, that tempers the danger with a slice of Southern charm and wide-eyed naivete … not to mention a heaping load of melody. Although Places To Hide has only been a full band for a year, it has quickly become one of the local DIY punk scene’s most exciting and talked-about up-and-comers. The new LP will only add to that fire, with irresistible songs that often feel like they’re careening out of control, but always steer themselves back to a catchy chorus, a rollicking guitar riff or a foot-stomping beat. Highly recommended for fans of Joyce Manor, Superchunk, Desaparecidos, and Swearin’.
