The Infinites Announce New Record

The Infinites have been one of our favorite acts in the Austin scene; the band’s full of ties to our own ATH Records, with members of both Zoltars and the Hermits playing on this record…and we couldn’t be happier to see them all land on one of our favorite labels, Meritorio! Our first single offers listeners a glimpse at the group’s propensity for offering an indie rock groove; you can feel the movement in the way the song goes up and down, constantly moving and growing. Jared’s vocal work is some of his best today, coolly riding that steady movement as the guitar lines seem to dance all around him. If you haven’t listened to the band before, might we suggest also spending some time with their self-titled debut. Archetypes will be out on February 16th via Meritorio Records–Pre-Order it HERE!

Show Preview: Alexalone/The Hermits @ Cheer Up Charlies (8/4)

Date Friday, August 4th
Location Cheer up Charlies
Doors 8:00 PM
Tickets $3-$5 Suggest Donation

It’s hot here in Texas, but things are cooling down so I think it’s just about time you get your ass back out and go to a show. What show you say? Friday night is a great place to start with an all local lineup featuring many of our best and most promising bands. Alexalone and The Hermits will be headlining the the evening right before they head off on tour together. In the middle of the lineup is an old school ATH fave Zoltars who are sure to keep you rocking. Kicking things off you’ll be treated to Why Bonnie and More Eaze. Friday night, get there or be… a big loser.
