The A-Sides Announce Fall Tour

Thursday, 09 August 2007

For all of those worried that all their favorite Independent bands were slowly selling out their sound for fancy cars and soundtrack deals (I’m looking in your direction The Shins); rest assured: Indie-Pop is alive and well, particularly in the hands of Philly rockers, The A-Sides. Forming in 2002 and releasing their debut album, Hello, Hello, in 2005, they have been on and off the radar ever since.

Most recently, The A-Sides will be gearing up for the release of their sophomore effort, Silver Storms on September 18th. Furthermore, immediately following the album’s release, The A-Sides will be raising the curtain on their very first national tour this fall.

For the local fans, they will also be having a record release show and takes place at Johnny Brenda's and will also feature performances from the Capitol Years and Bitter Bitter Weeks.

The information for release show is as follows:

August 30 – Philadelphia, PA @ Johnny Brenda’s, 9pm, $10
1201 N. Frankford Ave, Philadelphia, PA 19125
