——————————————————————————–

Can’t Take This Away 12″ out July 12, 2011 – Pre-Order info soon
• Now available as free / name-your-price download

——————————————————————————–

Animal Style Records is stoked to announce that on July 12th it will release Can’t Take This Away, the debut full-length from Hold Tight! (Richmond, VA).

Originally self-released digitally by the band last year via Bandcamp, the label will give these 14 songs a proper vinyl release with a limited pressing of 500 12-inches on three colorways (100 clear w/ black / 200 white / 200 red). The album will feature new artwork and each copy will come with a mp3 download card for all the tracks.

It’s worth noting that the record is still available for free / name-your-price download at Bandcamp. Animal Style will also release the LP through all the usual digital outlets, including iTunes.

Undoubtedly influenced by Richmond’s thriving underground scene, as well as greats like Lifetime and Latterman, Hold Tight! tears through fourteen gravelly, fist-pumping songs that explode with an entire Summer’s worth of sing-along choruses and propulsive punk anthems. There’s no shortage of infectious energy on Can’t Take This Away and the young quartet makes a lasting impression with this memorable debut.

Stay tuned for pre-order info. In the meantime, you can catch Hold Tight! on its upcoming U.S. tour with This Is Your Life beginning on July 3rd. As always, if you’d like to attend a show or speak with the band, drop me a line here.
