New Orleans punk act PEARS are undisputedly one of the hottest new bands in the punk scene right now. For those paying attention it wasn’t all that surprising when Fat Wreck Chords announced their signing back in May. After re-releasing the band’s debut full-length “Go To Prison” Fat is now giving fans a highly anticipated first taste of new music in the form of a 2 song 7-inch titled “Letters To Memaw” and today we are more than honored and stoked to bring you a stream of the release.
Listen to both tracks “Snowflake” and “Anhedonia” below.
“Letters To Memaw” is due out on September 18th. Here’s what frontman Zach Quinn had to say about the EP, which is available for pre-order on Fat’s webstore:
“These are two songs from a quick session in April that subsequently got re recorded for the next full length. They were the first two written for our follow up, Snowflake is loosely about struggling to identify one’s own power, and Anhedonia is loosely about a joyless life versus oblivion. We’ll be touring with our buddies Teenage Bottlerocket through September/October, playing the fest, and then touring with our new friends in Lagwagon in October/November. New record in February. Stay tuned. This is about to get interesting.”
As mentioned in Quinn’s statement, PEARS have been working on a follow-up to their 2014 debut LP
Go To Prison, which they plan on releasing sometime next year. Both tracks from Letters to Memaw will appear on the album. Additionally, the band will be touring North American with Teenage Bottlerocket and Lagwagon this fall. More info on those tours can be found here and here, respectively.
