Los Angeles-based indie-pop trio Army Navy are excited to announce the release of their new six-song EP titled The Crushed EP. Recorded with longtime producer Adam Lasus (Yo La Tengo, Clap Your Hands Say Yeah) at Fireproof Recording in Los Angeles, CA, The Crushed EP emerges from frontman Justin Kennedy’s recent personal feelings of uncertainty and is the precursor to the band’s soon-to-be released follow up to their critically acclaimed 2011 album, The Last Place. Check out the exclusive premiere of the music video for “Crushed Like The Car” from The Crushed EP on SPIN.com HERE

Army Navy released its highly acclaimed self-titled debut album on its own label, The Fever Zone, in late 2008, an album Pitchfork declared a “bubbly effervescent valentine to obscure power pop bands of the late-1970s and early-’80s” in their 7.8 review, and a record NPR described as “a Posies-and-Teenage Fanclub-style tsunami of melody and distortion that underscores the youthful essence of power-pop in all its bittersweet glory.”

In June 2011, the band launched its sophomore album titled The Last Place via the eMusic “Selects” program, a coveted spotlight that offered The Last Place to eMusic.com‘s subscribers exclusively for an entire month. eMusic went on to describe The Last Place as “a poisoned Valentine dripping with equal parts beauty and scorn; imagine a Vulcan mind-meld between Teenage Fanclub’s Bandwagonesque and Marvin Gaye’s Here, My Dear and you’re there.”

Army Navy will be supporting Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin in November. Tour dates below.
