NXNE
Root For RuinsRoot For Ruins

Les Savy Fav's new album "Root For Ruin" is out now, but only via iTunes (more about that from Tim Harrington in the video below). Want to listen before you buy? You can do that over at Spinner. On August 24th you can buy the MP3s at all other fine digital establishments, and the record's physical CD/LP release date is September 14th via Frenchkiss Records. Cover art above.

Six days before that, September 8th, the band will play an intimate release show at Mercury Lounge in NYC (Doors: 9:30). Tickets will cost you $15 (on sale on Ticketmaster Friday), but you can also get a free ticket if you pre-order "Root For Ruins" at Other Music (for a limited time and while tickets last). We also have two pair you can try to win.

Never liked the "fat bald man invades the crowd" school of bands that seem to be multiplying these days.

I thought Les Savy Fav owned Frenchkiss records. Why are they working day jobs?

"'fat [shirtless] bald man invades the crowd' school of bands." You think they would burn it off with their high energy.
