VIDEO: Late Bloomer’s “Dr. Abernathy”

Things Change is the latest effort from Late Bloomer but you do not want to say “eff’ it” as a means to ignore it, you’ll want to check this one out. The album, the band’s second, is a split release between three labels: Tor Johnson, Lunchbox, and Self Aware. Together, they’ve released Things Change, and they’ve made a video for one of its tunes, nicely called “Dr. Abernathy”. If the video looks like it was ripped directly from an old VHS, then you partly understand what they’re trying to do.

Late Bloomer have two shows scheduled this week, and have a few others planned in the next few weeks:
July 18… Greensboro, NC (NY Pizza) ✂
July 19… Charlotte, NC (Snug Harbor) ✂
August 9… Charlotte, NC (Chop Shop) ♞
August 22… Richmond, VA (Gallery 5) Ψ
August 23… Philadelphia, PA (TBA) Ώ
September 6… Raleigh, NC (Legends) Ӂ
October 31… Gainesville, FL (FEST 13)

✂ w/ Totally Slow
♞ w/ JEFF the Brotherhood
Ψ w/ Worn In Red, Sea Of Storms
Ώ w/ Radiator Hospital
Ӂ w/ Totally Slow and more

You can have the album digitally below via Bandcamp but if you’re a vinyl junkie, the record can be purchased from Self Aware Records.

SOME STUFFS: Shellshag are “Forever” with new video

The band are called Shellshag. Their forthcoming album on Don Giovanni is called Shellshag Forever. There’s a song on it called “Forever” so technically, the video for said song cannot be a title track. But it rocks, and you may view their garage nastiness now.

April 13… Brooklyn, NY (Union Pool) *
