Have Some Fun With Japanther


Japanther is a band who’ve given us some great tracks in the past that usually show up here on ATH.  Today I have another one of those stellar tracks called “Take Me In”.  It’s a definite pop-punk number for all of you who sometimes over think your musical tendencies.  This one is short, sweet, and gets to the point quick with a track time of under 2 minutes.  I can dig that.

Pick up new album, Instant Money Magic, due out April 15th.

New Single from Japanther

japantherI feel like it’s been a minute, or maybe just a few days, since I’ve posted a rocking little bit of pop-punk.  Good thing news broke today of the newest single from Japanther.  It’s a fuzzy, chugging guitar track, utilizing some microphone recording tricks…reminds me of old school 90s punk. I’m glad there are still bands that are making jams like this, though I’m sure the live setting will completely alter this track into a much more ferocious beast.  You can get your hands on the group’s new album Eat Like Lisa Act Like Bart in a little over a month, when it’s released by Recess Records on May 21st.

Japanther @ Red 7 (5/13)

Date 5/13/10
Location Red 7
Doors 9pm
Tickets Tickers @ Door

I will personally guarantee that the Japanther show at Red 7 on Thursday night will bring the damn house down.  Mark it down.  The lo-fi garage rockers will bring Muhammadali, Legsweeper, and Come and Take It while DJ Timmy Hefner spins things inside.  Not too sure on price so somebody let us know if you’ve got the deets.  Rock.
