Annuals Sign to Canvasback, Release EP

It was I suppose a year ago that we were all taken by surprise when Raleigh, NC's Annuals came in to play. Sporting their love and admiration for their contemporaries that gave them a sound that was equal parts Broken Social Scene and Animal Collective, as they were hailed one of the new best acts around.

After the sucess of Be He Me, the band has left Ace Fu to sign with Sony imprint Canvasback, and are in the midst of crafting their major label debut. Until then, the band will be dropping the Frelan Mas EP on iTunes this Tuesday. Culling b-sides and outtakes from Be He Me, it also features their cover of the gospel standard "Swing Low, Sweet Chariot," which is a pretty good rendition if you ask me.

Taking a break from recording, the band is on the road with their new labelmates Manchester Orchestra. Pure Volume is celebrating this tour with a Mannuals mash up contest. Take a song by each band, throw them in the proverbial blender, mix 'em up, and you might just win an acoustic Epiphone guitar autographed by both bands, along with copies of their albums, some 7" singles, etc. Pretty sweet, huh?
