Fort Worth, TX trio Cleanup are putting out their debut LP, Sun Life, today (6/3) via Holy Hell Records (order a copy), and a full stream of the album premieres in this post. Cleanup are math rock through and through, but they do it with vocals in the forefront and identifiable verses and choruses. Fans of Minus the Bear, Maps & Atlases or Tera Melos shouldn't sleep on this. Check it out below.

Cleanup are also going on an extensive tour of the US which kicks off in their hometown this weekend (6/7) and hits NYC on June 25 at Muchmore's and June 26 at The Bowery Electric with Sam Kogon, Terrible Terrible and Strange Kids. All dates are listed, with the new album stream, below...

Probably the hickster homeboys from parquet courts under those KKK hoods on the cover, huh?

Speaking of parquet courts, if they would've been smart and stayed in texass they might not still be broke and starving after selling 10k albums.

Hear hicksters can buy pretty cheap houses for under 100k in Texarkana.

My band played with these guys in Dallas years ago. They were pretty good then, but they have definitely kicked it up a few notches. Great work guys! I will definitely be picking this up.

TexazzTea: Those were some pretty evil words you posted. What happened to you to make you so mean?

I met these guys in Corpus Christi, TX. Not only is their music incredibly dynamic and entertaining, but they are also the nicest group of young men out there. Their attitudes took the whole experience from a 10 to 12.
