Kite Party Joins Animal Style


Baseball Season: Debut LP out 02/14/12 on vinyl / digital
Alternative Press: Song stream – “Buried In Dogs
• Full album stream @ Bandcamp


Animal Style Records (Mixtapes, Hold Tight!, Half Hearted Hero, Born Without Bones) is excited to welcome Kite Party to its ever-growing family of amazing bands. On February 14th, 2012, the label will issue the Philadelphia outfit’s debut full-length, Baseball Season, digitally and on 12″ vinyl, with the latter being limited to 500 copies on black (100), clear (200) and cream (200) colorways.

Originally self-released by Kite Party in July of 2011 as a show-only CD for an August tour with good friends Tigers Jaw, Baseball Season was recorded and produced by Kyle Pulley (Grandchildren, Dangerous Ponies, Tough Knuckles, Snakes Say Hisss, Band Name) at The Headroom in Philly. The record – which is the follow up Kite Party’s 2009 EP Wish Mountain – features nine engaging songs that mate the inventiveness of indie rock and the playful nature of pop with emo’s tendency toward twinkly, intertwining guitars and epic song structures. The band wraps it all up in a staunch DIY ethic and the spirit of punk, making for a terrific debut that will appeal to music fans across the board.

To celebrate today’s announcement, Animal Style and Kite Party have teamed up with Alternative Press to stream the track “Buried In Dogs.” To listen, go here. You can also stream Baseball Season in its entirety at Kite Party’s Bandcamp page.

Stay tuned for pre-order information in the new year. As always, if you have any questions or would like to speak with the band, drop me a line here.
