"After much anticipation, Los Angeles based rock heroes BIG BUSINESS have just released their latest and most epic album to date. Entitled "Mind The Drift," the album is available courtesy of the renowned Hydra Head Records, and was produced by Phil Ek (Built To Spill, Fleet Foxes, The Shins) in his Seattle studio.

Featuring the ferocious vocals and bass duties of Jared Warren (ex-Karp, Tight Bros From Way Back When), dominating drumming abilities of Coady Willis (also of the newly revived Murder City Devils), and for the first time, guitar madman Toshi Kasai (also a respected producer in his own right), "Mind the Drift"... [PR]

...is streaming in its entirety @ MindTheDrift.com.

The Big Business and Tweak Bird train landed at Union Pool on 5/9 and Mercury Lounge on May 10th (with Titan). All tour dates, and more pictures from the Brooklyn show below...

as much as i love big business (and other bands that played this past weekend...), i find hard to believe that BV has yet to post any pics of the mono TENTH ANNIVERSARY SHOW @ the ny society for ethical culture. there seemed to be a thousand photographers at that show. what gives?!

the mercury lounge show was great. coady might be the only drummer on earth who can wear gloves and a janet jackson headset mic and be able to get away with it.
