DOWNLOAD: Obits - You Gotta Lose (MP3)

Obits at Knitting Factory (more by Andrew St. Clair)

Obits will release their new LP Moody, Standard and Poor via Sub Pop on March 29th. Listen to a track from that record above and check out the full tracklist and cover art below.

Meanwhile the band will be priming that release with a gang of dates across the country. They're currently down south for another week with Gentleman Jesse and His Men, and will get on the road again in early March for some dates with their labelmate Jaill. That second run terminates in Dallas on March 15th (SXSW anyone?). The band will then make it home in time to play a record release show at The Bell House on April 2nd with The Sundelles and Tijuana Panthers. Tickets are on sale.

Speaking of Sub Pop, the band that Michael Cera is sometimes in, Mister Heavenly, will be in NYC this Sunday (1/16). Michael Cera may not be there though, but his bandmates Nick Diamonds (Islands/Unicorns), Honus Honus (Man Man) and Joe Plummer (Modest Mouse) definitely will be.

All Obits dates and some videos below.

Wow, proof that the 'kids' on this site have no clue as to what really rocks and what's the next flavor of the week. Rick and co. are dropping what will probably be the best album next year, give a snippet of what is possibly the best garage rock song to come out and a ... whopping 5 comments.

Ha, I knew the users on this site were idiots.
