Hey, gang, and welcome to February! We have so much going on at the moment, we’ve already some huge news this year, and we have a lot of amazing things still to come that we’re so stoked to tell you about.
First up, we have two new members of the ever growing and always loving RMR fam that we’d like to introduce. Please put your hands together for Mac DeMarco and Homeshake. We’re so excited to be releasing Mac’s new album ‘This Old Dog’ on May 5th, and we dropped Homeshake’s latest LP ‘Fresh Air’ on February 3rd. We think you’re really going to love ‘This Old Dog’ and in the meantime, you can check out two new tracks here. If you haven’t checked out Homeshake yet, we highly recommend it, especially as the perfect antidote to all this snow. 14 tracks of smooth, sultry electro with obvious r’n’b leanings, Homeshake offers something unique and adds another string to our musical bow.
The Hollerado boys are back! They have a new weird and wonderful video, filmed here at RMR HQ, that you can watch right here and will have more new songs for you very soon. Keep your eyes peeled, Hollerado fans. In the meantime, they have packed up their van again and are on the road once more. They just finished up a run with the Sam Roberts Band, taking in the whole of the US and they’re just about to jet off to Europe to do a three week run with Sum 41. Their European travels see them take in ten countries, including their first time in Moscow, Russia. They couldn’t be more excited, and neither could we. Follow them on Twitter and Instagram for updates and to see all the shenanigans they get up to whilst they call the road their home for the next month. You can find their tour dates here.
It will come as absolutely no surprise to any of you, but PUP have also been back out on the road! That sentence is so self-evident it almost feels unnecessary include it, but here we are. The gang was over in mainland Europe playing their own headline shows, before heading to the UK as main support for The Wonder Years. We’re constantly inspired and amazed by their work ethic and their relentless grind, all whilst being four of the nicest yahoos you could hope to meet. If you haven’t managed to catch them yet, you won’t be at all disappointed when you do, we promise. We’re not even being biased (okay, sure, maybe a lil’ bit…). They have lots of shows to announce this year, so be sure to keep an eye on our Facebook and Twitter for any news, we’ll be sure to post about it.
Our boos in Little Junior have also been on the road, taking in the sights and sounds of the ol’ U S of A, pounding the concrete with their buddies in July Talk for three weeks. With a debut album due out later this year, you’re sure to be seeing lots more of the Lil J’s very soon. Whilst we’re on the topic, you should go follow them on Instagram because they take loads and loads of amazing pictures of doggos, so we highly recommend getting involved with that.
Leaving a trail of pizza boxes and crushed tall cans in their wake, PKEW PKEW PKEW are once more increasing shares in local pizza places all over America, this time accompanying Anti-Flag and Reel Big Fish.
We have so many fun things to tell you about in the next few months, 2017 is shaping up to be our busiest and most fun year yet. We have some even more exciting new signings that we’ll be telling you about very soon and lots of fun plans and amazing releases for you to enjoy.
Peace, love and hugs from your pals at RMR. Let’s kick 2017’s butt together.
