Scranton/Philly band Three Man Cannon's history dates back to when members Dennis Mishko and Pat Brier were still playing in Tigers Jaw, but now that they've left that band, they can focus fully on Three Man Cannon who will release their new album, Pretty Many People, on May 27 via Lame-O Records (pre-order), former home of their neighbors Modern Baseball. The nasally vocals of the Pennsylvania punk scene TMC are rooted in are in place here, but it's musically much different. First single "Patiently" has the acoustic jangle of early Shins and new single "Something I Found" throws a surfy twang into the mix. Fans of There's Nothing Wrong with Love-era Built to Spill and The Photo Album-era Death Cab should check this out. "Something I Found" premieres in this post and can be streamed, along with the video for "Patiently," below.
As previously mentioned, Three Man Cannon will soon be touring with fellow Philly ex-punks Kite Party. That tour hits NYC on May 22 at David Blaine's The Steakhouse with LVL UP and Downies (mems of LVL UP and Porches). $5 at the door gets you in. All dates are listed below.
Tigers Jaw also have many dates coming up, including their tour with Pity Sex which hits NYC on June 18 at MHOW (tickets) and their tour with Touche Amore which hits the NYC-area on July 15 at Revolution (tickets).
