Two emo bands, Ridgewood, NJ's Prawn and Rockford, IL's Joie De Vivre, are teaming up to release a split 7" on February 11 via Topshelf and Count Your Lucky Stars (click the label links to pre-order). It's got three new songs from Joie De Vivre and two from Prawn, one of which makes its premiere in this post. "Why You Always Leave a Note" (presumably an Arrested Development reference?) starts out as the kind of Kinsella-style emo that Prawn have always had a knack for, but towards the end takes a turn for the sort of fleshed-out, heavily layered stuff that TWIABP were doing on their last record. Prawn have always had a post-rock side, but they've rarely sounded this downright pretty. Stream the song, along with the 7" artwork and tracklist, below.

Prawn's previously announced tour with You Blew It! and Crying comes to NYC on February 8 at Shea Stadium with Living Room. All dates are listed, along with the song stream and more, below...

I want to high school with this shrimp. I sea he is making a name for himself. I will wave to him if I see his show. Shore we didn't get a long at the time but that was high school and the tide has changed. I wonder how many clams he is going to make off this show? I must say he was a crabby dude however. Any way dude you dune well!

This track sounds awesome. Prawn is one of the only bands in the whole emo revival that sounds unique and not like a bad copy of something from 99'.
