The Reveling (Brooklyn, NY) recently teamed up with Nervous Energies to film an acoustic performance of two new songs from its debut full-length Tributaries. The session, which features the tracks “Charlotte Thompson” and “Unglued,” are now posted on the site and can be viewed here.

Released by Black Numbers (Grey Area, Static Radio NJ, Go Rydell, PJ Bond) earlier this summer, Tributaries was pressed on both CD and 12″ vinyl formats, with the latter being limited to 500 on three colorways (100 x clear / 150 x green / 250 x blue) and featuring gatefold jackets and an mp3 download card. The record is also available digitally from Bandcamp, iTunes and other online retailers. For more information or to grab a copy, go here.

On that note, The Reveling is currently sponsoring a contest for limited, hand-numbered vinyl test pressings of Tributaries, as well as the CD version of the record. Enter now and the band will choose three random winners on September 12th.

In other news, at 8pm on September 18th, The Reveling will host DIY Radio on Faction (SIRIUS XM Channel 41). The band’s guest spot will feature an hour of great independent and punk music, including songs from RVIVR, Dead To Me, Make Do And Mend, Grey Area, Red City Radio, Banquets and many more.

Finally, the official record release show for Tributaries is happening tomorrow (9/8) in NYC at The Local 269. Details below. As always, if you’d like to attend the show or speak with the band, drop me a line here.

Record Release Show
——————————————————————————————————

SEP 08 – New York, NY @ The Local 269, 269 E Houston St, 7pm, $7, 21+ w/ Luther, Nightmares For A Week, William Manning

Recorded by Alex Newport (Frank Turner, At The Drive-In, Rival Schools, Samiam) at Big Blue Meenie and Futureshock Studios, and mastered by Jeff Lipton (Arcade Fire, Dead Milkmen, Piebald, Sebadoh), Tributaries features 10 tracks of propulsive, highly infectious working-class punk rock that is as catchy and immediate as it is textured and nuanced. Much like The Reveling’s well-received 2009 EP, 3D Radio, this new full-length is anchored by a punchy rhythm section and plenty of throw-your-fists-in-the-air anthems. Still, Tributaries finds the band in top songwriting form, tighter and more cohesive than ever, with an even greater emphasis on the soaring harmonies that made The Reveling so irresistible in the first place.
