ANNOUNCING: COUSIN BRIAN "FIRST" LP


HELLO WORLD. I AM HAPPY TO ANNOUNCE THAT I WILL BE RELEASING COUSIN BRIAN'S MOST EXCELLENT DEBUT ALBUM, "FIRST." THE LP WILL BE AVAILABLE IN THE SPRINGTIME 2012.

IF YOU ARE NOT ALREADY FAMILIAR WITH COUSIN BRIAN, YOU ARE DUMB. BUT IT'S NOT TOO LATE TO HEAR THE ALBUM ON THEIR BANDCAMP PAGE. THEY SOUND LIKE THE SMITHS GOT REALLY DRUNK AND AGGRESSIVE AND MADE SOME INSANELY CATCHY PUNK MUSIC. THEIR ALBUM IS NICE AND SWEET AND THEIR LIVE SHOW IS A TOTAL FUCKING FREAKOUT. THIS IS THEM PLAYING IN A WEST PHILLY BASEMENT:


LISTEN TO THE ALBUM AND HEAD OVER TO PORTALS TO DOWNLOAD THE ALBUM'S FIRST SINGLE, "FEAR INSTILLED." ALSO CHECK THEM OUT THIS FRIDAY (3/16) AT THE BIKERY (5TH & GASKILL) WITH PUSSY DOGS, WHITE LOAD, AND DEAD PEOPLE SCREAMING. BRING A HELMET.
