Fruit Bats

This one's been making its way throughout the blogosphere as of late, so I best get to mentioning it. The Fruit Bats are a folk-rock band that well accustomed to the music scene - they first started in the 1990's and fully formed in early 2000. In 2002 they signed with Sub Pop records after touring with the likes of Modest Mouse, Iron and Wine and The Shins. Now, 4 years since their last CD, the Fruit Bats are releasing their newest album, The Ruminant Band, on August 4th. They'll also be engaged in a busy two month tour starting in August, and you can check out the details on their myspace to see if your town is one of the lucky ones.

But for now, enjoy the toe-tapping, slightly-bucolic, folk-rock title track.

Some Upcoming Tour Dates of Note:
August 26 - Spaceland - L.A., CA
Sept 11- Black Cat- Washington, DC

Sept 14 - Music Hall of Williamsburg - Brooklyn, NY
