Tomorrow night, I ask that our friends in Austin please do what you can to leave everything behind and just let yourself free by joining us at Cheer Up Charlies for the release of the new Basketball Shorts record, Hot and Ready. Some albums are perfect in what they bring to the table…excitement, memories, exhilaration…all present on this new release. Plus, the line-up for the show is stacked with local Austin talent: Popper Burns, Foreign Mothers and Flesh Lights. For those of you not in Austin, but looking for your favorite new album, it’s available HERE…and shipping out already!
We’ve been keeping ourselves pretty busy this year with our various releases on ATH Records, so we aim to keep that up, at least for the time being. We’ve teamed up with our good friends over at Fleeting Youth Records to release a super special limited edition LP from Austin’s Basketball Shorts; Hot and Ready will come on clear vinyl with smoky blue swirls…a run of 350 split across the three participating parties. The band have long been a favorite of the Austin scene, blasting pop punk jams in your face whenever they take the stage. This is their debut LP, and we couldn’t be more excited for you to hear it. Pre-Order is up; it’ll ship on or before July 12th.
