• Out June 4, 2013 on LP (Irrelevant Recordings) + CD (Out Of This Records)

Places To Hide (Atlanta, GA) has announced a three-week U.S. tour ( June 8 – 29) in support of its debut full-length, Almost Nothing. Details and other information can be viewed below. As always, if you’d like to attend a show or speak with the band, drop me a line here.
Almost Nothing will see an official June 4th release on 12-inch vinyl and digital formats from Places To Hide’s own Irrelevant Recordings. The LP will be limited to a pressing of 250 on black vinyl and will be available from the band on tour, as well as in its webstore. Out Of This Records – a new label from Run Forever‘s Cassie Staub – will also press a CD version of the full-length.
To celebrate today’s announcement, Place To Hide has teamed up with our friends at Muzik Dizcovery to premier a new track, album closer “Ecotone.” Go here to listen to the exclusive stream. The outfit has also made three additional songs available for free download at Bandcamp.
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’.
