Butter the Children ready new EP, playing tons of shows
by Bill Pearis
As mentioned, Brooklyn indie rockers Butter the Children signed to Downtown Records and the first fruits of this, the three-song True Crime EP, will be out August 20. With an aggressive rhythm section powering tremolo-heavy glide guitar and poppy melodies, it's a nice first showing on the label. You can stream opening track "Spit It Out" below (via Stereogum).
Butter the Children play around their hometown a lot (like the two shows they played over the weekend), and as usual they have plenty more coming up. You can see them on Friday (8/2) at The Ho_se in Bushwick with Jesse Cooper Levy, Swear and Shake, Cutters, and O'Great North; August 5 at The Paper Box with Violent Past and Czech Neck (tickets); August 12 at Cake Shop with The Numerators and Wimps; a record release show at 285 Kent (8/20) on the day of the album's release; and the previously discussed show at Cake Shop on August 24 with Bent Shapes, Gross Relations, and Two Inch Astronaut.
