Earlier this week (Tuesday, March 29th, to be more specific), we at Sub Pop Records enjoyed the great privilege of releasing the new and second album by Obits. It’s called Moody, Standard and Poor, this new Obits album, and we are of the opinion that it is really very exceptional. You can and should listen to two songs from Moody, Standard and Poor (“You Gotta Lose” and “Shift Operator”) on the Obits artist page here on subpop.com, to form your own opinion on the matter. And then, after having done so (or before that even: your call), you should buy this new Obits record from us or your local record shop.
Also! Tomorrow night, April 2nd, Obits will be celebrating the release of Moody, Standard and Poor in a way common to many of our favorite bands: they will be playing a rock show. This Obits record release show will take place at The Bell House in Brooklyn, NY and you should do all that you can to attend. Obits’ drummer Scott has also designed and caused to be printed (by Polluted Eyeball, in a limited-edition of 200) a new poster for the occasion! 100 of these will be available at the show tomorrow night and the other 100 will be available here on the Subbe Poppe Internette Concerne at some later date.
Also also! Obits will be playing a special in-store performance for Record Store Day (4/16/11) at NY’s Generation Records.
