Zammuto - Anchor

Zammuto, the project of Nick Zammuto of The Books, have a new album coming out called Anchor on Temporary Residence, and they've recently released a song from that called "IO." While we imagine this isn't a conscious shout-out to our metal blog, we're flattered nonetheless. As for the song, its a heavily produced slice of new wave-y pop that registers as somewhat more immediate than what we're used to hearing from Zammuto.

The band have also added a bunch of tour dates to an already extensive run, which include a stop in NYC at Le Poisson Rouge on October 26 where they'll be joined by Barnaby Bright. Tickets for that show are on sale now.
