Fang Island releasing ‘Major’ (MP3), going on tour (dates)

DOWNLOAD: Fang Island – Sisterly (MP3)

Fang Island

Brooklyn combo Fang Island will release their new album, Major, on July 24 via Sargent House. The band are also going on tour, playing the biggest venues of their career yet. The tour kicks off on July 20 at Bowery Ballroom and wraps up on August 30 at Music Hall of Williamsburg. Tickets to Bowery and tickets to MHoW go on sale Friday, June 15 at noon, with presales beginning Wednesday (6/13) at noon. All Fang Island tour dates are listed at the bottom of this post.

You can download “Sisterly” from Major at the top of this post and stream it below along with another of the album’s tracks. If you were wondering why they called it Major, the band offer up some answers:

– Major key (the first song is minor though!)
– Valley girl colloquialism
– Because we are on an independent label
– Because the rank under Sargent (House) is major
– It sounds like a constellation
– Steely Dan’s “Any Major Dude” was in rotation a lot during the sessions
– The record is packaged to look like stone because it’s ROCK. I really wanted people to hold a piece of rock when they picked up the record.”

You can check out the cover art to Major, along with a video album teaser, those song streams and tour dates below.
