Anarctigo Vespucci

In addition to both having active solo careers, Jeff Rosenstock (Bomb the Music Industry, Arrogant Sons of Bitches) and Chris Farren (Fake Problems) are also the collaborative duo Antarctigo Vespucci, who released their debut EP last year. They're set to follow it with their first full length, Leavin' La Vida Loca, on July 24 via Really Records (pre-order). Jeff and Chris were backed by Gaslight Anthem drummer Benny Horowitz for the recording.

The album's new single is "Losing My Mind." It's a bit calmer than the crunchy power pop of a song like last year's "I'm Giving Up On U2," but Jeff and Chris's knack for addictive melodies are just as intact as you'd expect. It's mostly lo-fi indie rock in the traditional sense, but with a few surprises like the blasting synths in the first verse. Check it out -- it premieres below.

Antarctigo Vespucci's only upcoming date at the moment is The Fest, but both Jeff and Chris have solo tours too.

Jeff's tour with Dan Andriano (of Alkaline Trio), Pet Symmetry and High Dive hits NYC on July 31 at the Marlin Room at Webster Hall (tickets).

And Chris's tour with Rocky Votolato and Dave Hause hits NYC on July 24 at Mercury Lounge (tickets).

All dates for both are listed, with the new song, album artwork and tracklist, below...
