Treasure Fleet

Treasure Fleet sound like they've been in a time capsule, and I mean that with the utmost respect. The band's sugary-sweet mix of 60's mod pop-psych mixed with a dash of punk rock seems almost as if it has forgone any influence from bands in the past thirty years to craft their debut for Recess Records. Comprised of members of The Arrivals, Lawrence Arms, Smoking Popes and Sass Dragons, the band's latest LP Future Ways is due on 11/30 and you can stream it in full for the first time below. Order yours at the label, reccommended.

So far no NYC shows scheduled for TF, but the Chicago band has a couple scheduled in their native Midwest. Check out a list of tour dates, that stream and a video below.

Center guy = big time POSER

Reminds me of this dude in Williamsburg claiming to "dig" Motorhead, because he saw my shirt and went "Ace of Spades! Yeah!"

it's seriously so sad none of you have heard of the arrivals/don't recognize isaac thotz/don't even fucking recognize neil hennessy or eli caterer. get your head out of the east coast's fat fucking ass. MIDWEST PONXXXXX

^What he said, I think Little Dave from The Arrivals also plays organ. SOUTHWEST (appreciating MIDWEST) PUNX!

It's strange that many of you are trolling the shit out of this board. This band is fantastic, throw on a hell of a show anywhere and at anytime. Their first album was genius, and many of you simply overlooked it, because you're to far up the east or the west coast asshole to understand what is going on within the midwest. You want a war? You fucking got it. What's wrong with a motorhead shirt? The dude is just showing his loyalty to a band he likes. We don't make fun of you when you wear a shit animal collective shirt, or some fucked up west coast pop punk shit show band. Listen up, and change your shit.

Chicago is a great town
if you are an asshole

YES! Their 1st record was so good, TF could have the #1 and #2 record of the year! Along with Toys That Kill, Recess Records owns the top 3!

Brooklyn Vegan....really you New Yorkers support a shit square called Brooklyn and Vegan. That's basically saying something along the lines of "hipster hipster".
