Today is release day for Banner Pilot’s new album, Souvenir, and Strung Out’s Volume One Box Set!
First up, Banner Pilot’s latest. Check out the awesome video for the album’s leadoff track “Modern Shakes,” which embraces the (drinking) history of their native Minneapolis so well. Listen to “Effigy” here and then order this surefire album-of-the-year candidate already! Lastly, Banner Pilot will be heading out on tour this May; don’t miss them!
Onwards to our second release of the day, and a colossal release it is: Strung Out’s Volume One box set. All three of their ‘90s albums have been completely remixed for this set and packaged with extensive liner notes. The box set also includes the first-ever Strung Out DVD with a full professionally recorded 2012 concert, plus a ton of footage from the ‘90s: shows, tour antics, interviews, and more. Watch the trailer, listen to a few songs, and order your copy now! Australia, Strung Out is headed your way on the Hits & Pits Festival! Check their tour dates here.
