Stranded In Stereo: Annuals Coming To Town

Annuals Coming To Town

Annuals, the Raleigh, North Carolina collective that played only umpteen sets at CMJ and SXSW, are hitting the road supporting the NME sponsored Kaiser Chiefs and Walkmen co-headlining affair. The band's debut, last year's amazing Be He Me, was easily one of the finer debuts released in 2006. Yeah I'm gonna have to agree with the masses and say it has that whole vibe of Broken Social Scene and Arcade Fire and Animal Collective, but at the same time the band holds their own ground. Lead singer Adam Baker pulls from personal experiences of life and death to write the band's powerful lyrics, while dueling guitars and powerful drums help him carry out his message.

Be a kind fellow and show up the venue early and catch their set. The Kaiser Chiefs/Walkmen jaunt starts this Friday. Annuals then will play some west coast dates with Blonde Redhead and a few headlining gigs along the way.
