Almost Nothing, the debut LP from Atlanta, GA’s Places To Hide is officially out this week on 12-inch vinyl and CD formats. To celebrate, the band has teamed up with our friends at Punknews.org for an exclusive full-length stream.
To listen to Almost Nothing in its entirety, go here.
Released on June 4th on LP and digital formats by Places To Hide’s own Irrelevant Recordings, Almost Nothing is limited to a pressing of 250 on 12″ 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 – has also pressed a CD version of the full-length.
On Saturday, Places To Hide will embark on a three-week U.S. Tour ( June 8 – 29) in support of the new full-length. 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.
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’.
