SOME STUFFS: Alright ready to release new 7″ EP and do a week of shows

Alright photo Alright_old_zps00gddx8t.jpg
They are Alright, and not just a way to say this group is alright, that’s their name and they’re from Charlotte, North Carolina. Featuring current and former members of It Looks Sad and Late Bloomer, they will be releasing an EP this spring through the Negative Fun and Self Aware labels, a split effort that is to insure people will hear it and enjoy the good music found on it. On vinyl, the EP will be released as a 7″ while digital will be, of course, digital. You can pre-order it from both Negative Fun or Self Aware, take your pick. If you want to know waht they sound like, have a listen to a tune from it called “Mixed Signals”, which will hopefully be direct to you. You have to head to BrooklynVegan.com to hear it.

They’ll take a week in March to do some shows during the second half of the month as a way to greet the much-desired spring. They’ll be doing shows with a number of other great bands, so show up early.

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
