Public Practice, the new band featuring Samantha York and Vince McClelland of Wall as well as Beverly members Drew Citron and Scott Rosenthal, have announced their debut EP, which is titled Distance is a Mirror and will be out via Wharf Cat on October 26. The band have shared the EP's opening track, "Fate/Glory," which makes for a confident calling card for their very danceable post-punk variant. There's just a hint of southern swamp rock in there too, and the song zigs, zags and packs in lots of big hooks in its 2:38 running time. Listen below.

There are a few chances to catch Public Practice in NYC over the next month: the Popgun 10th Anniversary show at Elsewhere on Thursday (8/23). They play the rooftop which is free with RSVP (you need to buy a ticket for the shows inside, which include Bodega, Charly Bliss and more). They also play The Glove on September 12 with Bambara, and then ar part of  Jonathan Toubin's New York Night Train Soul Clap and Dance Off on September 15 at Diveria Dive with Jacuzzi Boys, The Saylavees and more (tickets). Last but not least, Public Practice open for Shame at Music Hall of Williamsburg on October 5 (tickets).
