SO MUCH NEW MUSIC OUR HEARTS ARE GONNA EXPLODE July 29 2014, 0 Comments

Now it's no secret that we love our boys in Ed Schrader's Music Beat. But we had no idea you guys loved 'em so much too! And when our inboxes were flooded with orders for Party Jail, we quickly realized that our supply was much smaller than the demand. I mean, we're talkin' down to the last handful of its first pressing in less than two months! So while we're busy getting that second pressing ready, we figured we'd try to satisfy the your Music Beat craving with a 7" of one of our fave tracks from Party Jail: "Laughing." Then on the b-side, we're hitting you with "Bedouin Tramps," a previously unreleased track from the same sessions that'll have you dancing sweatily in no time-- according to our friends at VICE/Noisey and, well, all of our friends actually!

This 7" is the real deal, ya hear? The vinyl is the blackest of black and just feels nice in your hand. The covers were hand silk-screened here at the Infinity Cathouse by our very own Sabrina and Justine the Sisterhood. The record is limited to 300, but we're only putting 200 online. (Ed and Devlin are taking the remaining 100 on tour with them. Dates and tix below!) If that's not enough, we're throwing in a PEACE LOVE INFINITY CAT bumper sticker with every order. Cuz we feel like it. Cuz we love you. Get into it here.

But as the infomercials say, BUT WAIT THERE'S MORE. Our bogus bros JEFF the Brotherhood dropped some heavy knowledge on the world today: they'll be touring around with Music Band in September and Diarrhea Planet in October. That's right bby, this fall it's an Infinity Cat family affair! JEFF and Music Band will be hitting the west coast, while JTBDP will be cruising up the northeast. And the tour will conclude with not one, not two, but THREE NIGHTS AT THE END IN NASHVILLE. HOLD ON TO YR HATS IT'S GONNA BE A CRAZY RIDE. Tickets go on sale August 1st (that's this Friday) but you can check all the dates below. Oh, and don't forget, DP's currently on tour with our pals Those Darlins and yeah yeah we know, you know the drill, you can see those dates below too. Summer of shred!!

Now a lot of you have been asking us about the new JEFF album. Bbs we know, we want you to hear it too, but it's just not quite ready to smash into yr earholes yet. BUT to tide you over in the meantime, the boys have crafted a sick covers EP called Digs The Classics. They put their v special swampy effects on The Pixies, The Wipers, My Bloody Valentine, Colleen Green, Teenage Fanclub, and Beck. And THEN they put those badass covers on purple 12" vinyl. Are you drooling yet? Mark yr calendars for September 30th. Real big: "NEW JEFF EP COMES OUT AND I'M GONNA GET IT!"

HOLD ON CHILD WE'RE NOT FINISHED WITH YOU YET. We've been blasting Music Band's "Can I Live" cassette non-stop since we released it back in May and we couldn't be happier that they're touring with JEFF. I mean, shit, we really love these guys. So when we heard them playing new tunes during our Super Summer Infinity Cat Release Party Show, we knew we had to press them to vinyl ASAP. So on September 9th, we're gonna hit you with a brand new 7" from Nashville's favorite power trio. "I Was Like" backed with "Everything Wants A Piece of Me." Now we're not gonna tell you much right now, but we will say that there's some special guests hangin' around these sessions and that these songs knocked us off our feet the first time we heard em. And the second time. And the third time. Even D Boone took a break from lounging to show us his best dance moves! Man, we can't wait to share these tunes with you, so just keep yr eyes locked on infinitycat.com and we will show you the way shortly.
