The Sounds at Santos in 2009 (more by Chris La Putt)
The Sounds

The Sounds have announced their new LP Something To Die For (out March 22, but available for pre-order), and along with it the first song "Better Off Dead" (with a contest for its b-side) which is available now. Listen to it below.

The Swedes will help promote that release by visiting Texas, NYC, Mexico & California in March. You can catch them on March 15th, one night before SXSW Music starts, at the Syndicate's first-annual pre-SXSW 'Conflict of Interest' party (the same party that's been happening on CMJ-eve for years). All details and the full lineup for that free show are below.

After Austin the band hits Brooklyn for a show at Music Hall of Williamsburg on 3/21 (less than a month away and one day before the album comes out). Tickets go on AmEx presale Wednesday at noon (3/2), and regular sale on Friday. After NY they head to Mexico and then LA and then San Francisco.
