Wild Flag at Pitchfork Fest 2012 (more by Fred Pessaro)
Wild Flag Pitchfork Fest

As you're possibly aware, Wild Flag and Mission of Burma are playing a free Celebrate Brooklyn! show in Prospect Park on August 3 with Ted Leo. To commemorate the show, the two headliners are releasing a split 7" that will be sold at the show, with Wild Flag's "Boom" on one side and MoB's "What They Tell Me"on the flip. Both songs are previously released but it's still a cool little keepsake. Look for it at the merch table. You can check out the single's cover art below along with a stream of Mission of Burma's contribution.

Wild Flag are taking it easy this summer. The Prospect Park show and FYF Fest in L.A. in September are the band's only two current upcoming gigs. Meanwhile, Mission of Burma's new album, Unsound, came out last week and the whole thing is streaming via Spotify. The band have a decent slate of tour dates coming up, all of which are listed below.

It's MoB's "What They Tell Me" on one side and Wild Flag's "Boom"

Figures that a site dedicated to the hipster demographic would have a shot of Wild Flag as the main picture and not MOB. I never would've guessed.

If MoB toured with a Disney act it would be the best of both worlds for me: MoB music and my throbbing gristle buried balls deep in a tween.

"how overpriced will this single be?"

I was thinking the same thing. $8 for a 7"? I'm glad tour 7"s are back in style, but damn.

To clear up a little something, NY was NEVER onsale at today. I was refreshing all morning and it wasn't there. Whether it was ever supposed to be or not is the confusion. Merge said it would and neither they nor Arcade Fire has said anything to clear that up.
