Free Throw

Nashville's Free Throw are releasing a new album, Those Days Are Gone, on September 16 via Count Your Lucky Stars (pre-order), and the LP's newest single, "Tongue Tied," is premiering in this post. Yes, Free Throw are "emo revival," and yes there's been a lot of this stuff lately, but if you miss the 1996-2002 period of the genre, few new songs are gonna hit the spot like this one. It successfully brings together Tell All Your Friends dual vocals with American Football's shimmering guitars, and the #feels are all over this song. Check it out below.

Free Throw are also heading out on a tour with CYLS founders Empire! Empire! (I Was A Lonely Estate), whose new LP came out this week and is streaming below. The tour doesn't hit NYC, but it will be nearby for a Long Island show on October 23 at The Wood Shop in Copaigue and an Asbury Park show on October 28 at Asbury Lanes. Tickets for the LI show and the NJ show are on sale now.

All dates are listed, with the streams, below...

Did the flyer say "if you have a stupid fucking beard and free time between Econ and Comp Lit, come down to the dining hall back room to jam"?

This shit is fucking embarrassing.

10/26 - it's "TT the Bear's Place". You're thinking of BJ & The Bear. And (1:27) some people have absolutely no shame.
