The Heavy Pets Announce Fall Tour & New Single, "Two Horses"
The Heavy Pets wrapped up recording two brand new tracks just in time for the first leg of their Fall Tour 2013. CDs of the A/B side singles "Last Babies" and "Keep Me Running" will only be available at their upcoming shows prior to the official release date of Tuesday, October 1st, when the world can join the Pets as they celebrate the occasion by performing LIVE from AURA Studios that evening as part of AURA Music Group's ongoing live video stream series.
The release of Two Horses marks the beginning of a new era in The Heavy Pets' process of recording their prolific song catalog. By utilizing the world-class, hometown Power Station Recording Studios, the Pets were able to self-produce the effort while maintaining their rigorous performance schedules. The diverseness of the lo-fi rocker "Last Babies" and the hip-hop groove of "Keep Me Running" further exemplifies the range of this dynamic group of talented musicians who have never been more proud and anxious to release a piece of their life's work. Two Horses will be available on October 1, 2013 as a CD, digital download and 7" vinyl record.
