Grown Ups – Pre-order ‘More Songs’ now!

The North American re-release of More Songs, the critically-acclaimed full-length from Chicago’s Grown Ups, is now available for pre-order from Topshelf Records (My Heart To Joy, Pianos Become The Teeth, Defeater).

The Midwestern quartet’s debut will see an official Stateside street date of November 9th on both CD and LP formats. Originally issued in May of 2010 by Big Scary Monsters, the British imprint will continue to carry the record as part of its catalog in the UK and Europe

Limited to 500 12-inches on four colorways (100 Coke Bottle Clear / 100 Off White / 100 Clear Gold / 200 Black), Topshelf has several special package deals available and the label will be giving away a test pressing to one random pre-order. Moreover, anyone who ordered the first pressing of the BSM-released More Songs is eligible for a free, exclusive screen-printed poster. Go here for additional info.

To celebrate the pre-order launch and upcoming release, Grown Ups and Topshelf have partnered with Absolutepunk.net for a test pressing contest. To enter, go here.

A U.S. tour in support of the re-release is currently being booked and Grown Ups will be playing this year’s Fest in Gainesville, FL as well. (tour dates to come soon!)

THE ARCHITECTS DEBUT NEW VIDEO FOR “PILLS”

Fiercely outspoken but often with tongue-firmly-in-cheek, Brandon Phillips of The Architects has lots to say about the U.S. Healthcare system and how manipulative it is. But instead of standing on a soapbox and shouting it from the rafters, he opted to shout it through their new video instead. Culled from their recently released third album Vice on Anodyne Records, the single “Pills” cynically rips into the time-worn practice of placating patients through the numbing effect of pills and other forms of medication. The video will be exclusively streamed for a week on AbsolutePunk.net (http://www.absolutepunk.net/showthread.php?t=459932).

In addition to debuting the video for “Pills”, The Architects will also be joining Authority Zero for a run of dates in August. Dates are:

Aug 19 The Tonic Bar Reno, NV
Aug 22 El Corazon Seattle, WA
Aug 26 Mesa Theatre Grand Junction, CO
Aug 27 Aggie Theatre Ft. Collins, CO
Aug 28 Bluebird Theatre Denver, CO
Aug 29 Green Light Tavern Pueblo, CO
Aug 30 Launch Pad Albuquerque, NM
