Those Darlins Announce New Split 7″ with Funstix – Sept. 14th

“Night Jogger” b/w “Funstix Party!”

An undisputed favorite of ours, Those Darlins are the Ramones without the OCD.

Formed in 2006 they swaggered onto the scene in 2009 with their self-titled debut. These are hard-working musicians whose endearing charm is that they don’t take themselves too seriously. The music, though, is heartfelt and stare-you-down honest with fistfulls of grit and party spirit.

But you knew that, didn’t you.

Those of you who’ve experienced TD live and in person will recognize these tunes. Suffice to say — the studio versions kick ass! The image on the cover of “Nightjogger”? That’s the x-ray of Nikki’s surgically repaired bionic arm.

You can buy the 7″ now at Those Darlins’ store.

Here’s the latest from their publicist:
Slated for release via their own label Oh Wow Dang, this 7″ is the first music from Those Darlins 2009 and showcases the more rockin’ direction the band is heading in.  Advance copies are available now on ThoseDarlins.com and the 7″ hits indie retail on September 14.

Fans are hungry for more music and Those Darlins will be doing an extensive headlining tour around this 7″ including a performance at ACL Fest.  The band has a strong history with indie retail, having done several in-stores and successfully releasing their debut on not only CD but vinyl. They want this 7″ to bridge the love affair from their debut to their sophomore release.

FUNSTIX is a new side project with Jessi Zazu and drummer Linwood Regensburg of Those Darlins. This is their first official release.
