KITE PARTY – Debut Full-Length Out Now From ANIMAL STYLE RECORDS
Baseball Season – the debut full-length from Philadelphia, PA’s Kite Party – was officially released this week (02/14) on Animal Style Records (Mixtapes, Hold Tight!, Half Hearted Hero, Born Without Bones).
The nine-song effort was recorded and produced by Kyle Pulley (Grandchildren, Dangerous Ponies, Tough Knuckles, Snakes Say Hisss, Band Name) at The Headroom in Philly and is now available in digital and 12″ LP formats, with the latter being limited to 500 on 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 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.
Finally, Kite Party will be playing a string of record release shows over the next couple of weeks. As always, if you have any questions or would like to speak with the band, drop me a line here.
