Split Vinyl 7" single featuring R.Ring's "Loud Underneath" and Protomartyr's "Blues Festival"

One of the best parts about playing music is travelling. One of the best things about travelling is meeting new weirdos. In Texas, last year, we met some odd hombres in a band called, ‘Protomartyr’. We played a show together, struck up a friendship and agreed to stay in touch. Fast Forward through time, music and life to the present and we’ve got a new split single that we’re honored to be a part of.

Titled, “Half of Seven”, the 7”, black vinyl is a joint release between Hardly Art (the label that Protomartyr is on) and R.Ring. They’ve got a stellar song called, “Blues Festival” that we recorded with them at Candyland in Cincinnati over a couple of snowy days last Winter and we’ve got a track that we’re very proud of called, “Loud Underneath” that we did with Joe Frankl on drums and Kristian Svitak on these little percussive stick thingy-s.

All around, it’s been such a great process; we took care of wrangling all the audio and masters, the Protomartyrs did all the artwork and Sarah from Hardly Art took care of all of the manufacturing logistics. Go Team!
So without further wordage… check it out!
