Art Contest hijacks the local pep rally with "Sports", the latest single from upcoming album Two Songs (out 6/2) and the band's first new track since last year. Premiered today via My Old Kentucky Blog, make sure to respect the home team and stream it below.
The Athens math rock duo recently announced that June 2nd will see the official release of their long-awaited psych-pop opus, Two Songs. Originally scheduled to drop in late 2015, the initial production of Two Songs ran into a bevvy of obstacles, all stemming from an Athens home invasion that left the band without vital equipment and most of their original recordings.
Says guitarist Cole Monroe, "Putting the album together two times over two years has proven to be a challenge and, consequently, it's the most unique production either of us have ever worked on. Two Songs reflects us, the way we perceive these songs, the world they now live in, and we aim to challenge the concepts of rock music and production with it."
