It’s that time of year again, the chaos that is a week of heavy beer consumption and rock ‘n’ roll (which lasts all year for some of us) that is SXSW. Sad to say that, for the first time in five years, I’ll not be attending. My plans for showcases fell through, and I’m in the midst of releasing eight records at the same time (pay attention to these pages later this week for more on all of that). Anyhow, we wanted to keep you updated on the Volar acts that’ll be gracing Austin (and other cities as well in some cases) with their presence over the next week. Dates and goodies, so if you happen to be out that way, please try and catch 'em!
to the original version of “Kamikaze” from last summer’s cassette on
Burger Records, and stayed tuned for the newly recorded 7” on Volar
featuring the talents of our buddy Andreas Lagerstrom of Holograms on
vox and keys. Also, you can listen to "Danya" over at SXSW's official schedule page. They'll have fifty limited tour presses of the 7" with them at SXSW, get 'em before they're gone!
