RECORD CRACK/SOME STUFFS: Hostage Calm release themselves, pack bags

Image and video hosting by TinyPic Hostage Calm are about to release their self-titled album, but it is their sophomore released. Confused? You don’t have to be, for Lens was the first album by this Connecticut band. Now, their first album is their own name, it is self-titled. Still confused? You don’t have to be. The only first you need to know about is that their self-titled album, their second, is their first for the Run For Cover label.

The album will be out on both vinyl (pre-order here) or compact disc (pre-order there) on or around July 20th, but you’re able to give the album a try out by streaming it in full over at PunkNews.org.

If you like it and want to hear more, they will be starting up on a tour across the U.S. beginning next week Tuesday. Here is where you’ll find them:
