"Soundtracked brilliantly by the band’s scratchy guitar solos and wavering vocal that almost always feels like it might collapse at any moment, the new film is a searing reminder that the oft-forgotten medium still has a hell of a lot to offer." GoldFlakePaint - our best buds across the pond - debuted Attic Abasement's "Guarantee Jesus" music video directed by Micah Van Hove. Watch it hereand buy Dream News on LP/CD here.
Pop-rock queen and ultimate craft and visual artist, Lisa Prank, gifts us this awesome new music video for her song 'Starting Again' with the help of director Faye Orlove. Filmed in Los Angeles at the Junior High Collective, Lisa Prank and Orlove work together to create some stunning visuals that are reminiscent of those 1980s montage videos and that time when our parents caught us singing into a hairbrush. Check out the official music video here, and make sure to order a copy of Adult Teen before they're sold out!
PWR BTTM returns to the scene with their new single, 'Projection', in what Stereogum calls, " both impudent pop-punk and spirited art-rock". 'Projection' maintains a sense of pain and joy throughout the track itself and uses a barrage of guitar licks to catch you off guard if you aren't already familiar with the band's dynamic. Stream it on our Soundcloud here or buy a digital copy here.
Mark your calendars, PWR BTTM and Lisa Prank are both coming to a city near you this fall! Talk about a killer tour, right? Tickets are available now so hit this Songkick link to buy a couple of tickets for you and your friends. Peep the kick-ass flyer below!

Rochester, NY's Attic Abasement will release their first new full-length album entitled Dream News on May 27, 2016 via Father/Daughter. The 11-song record finds the band -- whose current current line-up includes Keith Parkins (bass), Joe Parker (drums), and Mike (guitar and vocals) -- in top form, recorded with Chris Daly at Salvation Recording Co in New Paltz, NY and mastered by Jamal Ruhe at West West Side. Exploring themes including war, indulgence, suicide, messiahs, the dream, and governance/corruption, the songs on Dream News draw from a wider pool of sonic influence for Attic Abasement while still maintaining cohesion and focus. This is first new Attic Abasement full-length since 2010's Dancing Is Depressing. Listen to the first single, "Guarantee Jesus" at The Fader.

It’s been a while since we’ve updated the news but that’s only because we’ve been busy releasing oodles of records. Since we last talked, Hiccup’s rad double a-side single debuted, as did SPORTS’ All of Something LP, and SPORTS lead singer/guitarist/songwriter Carmen Perry’s solo outing, Addie Pray’s Screentime. Our two fav two pieces, Diet Cig and PWR BTTM, landed on so many year end lists it got hard to keep track of and January will see them touring to new, exotic locales — Diet Cig make their first ever UK trip, PWR BTTM finally hits the West Coast.
Things may seem quiet on the F/D front but that’s only because we’re working frantically behind the scenes on some pretty epic records we can’t wait to tell you about. In the meantime, like us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter for our daily, witty banter (or so we like to think).
With October being Breast Cancer Awareness Month, we wanted to do something to bring attention to the campaign as well as donate to a non-profit that is in an incredibly bad place right now. Some people I love have either had and overcome or sadly been taken from us as a result of breast cancer. It is the most common cancer among women in the U.S. and 1% of all cases occur in men. For those who are unable to afford healthcare, Planned Parenthood offers breast exams and mammograms in addition to providing a wealth of information about breast, cervical and ovarian cancers, STDs and general reproductive health care and sex education. Why any government official thinks it’s okay to deny a society access to information that could potentially save lives is insane to me which is why we #standwithpp and are donating 10% of every purchase made in October to Planned Parenthood. Visit our webstoreand Bandcamp and buy some good music in the name of a great cause.
This secret has been a difficult one to keep but today we’re super excited to officially welcome Rochester, NY’s Attic Abasement to Father/Daughter!

In the meantime, get familiar with their outstanding catalog on Bandcamp and if you live in New York, go see this live this Friday October 2nd at Baby’s All Right in Brooklyn on a stacked show with Eskimeaux, Told Slant, and Real Life Buildings.
