Crystal Antlers sign to Touch & Go!!

Crystal Antlers have been surrounded by beautiful energy lately. The days of summer have been filled with the punk rock mischief of touring cross-country on a vegetable oil-powered school bus as part of the widely publicized F Yeah Fest (F Yeah Fest, New York Times), filling massive orders for their self-released EP through their myspace page, and on downtime, drinking beers in percussionist Damian's empty pool.

So as it happens, we’ve been caught under the spell of that energy and floored by the burst of raw, soulful punk that is the Antlers debut EP and live show. With that, we couldn’t be happier to announce that Touch and Go Records will be reissuing the Crystal Antlers EP on compact disc in October, with its first-ever pressing on vinyl to follow in November. We’ll also be releasing a full-length album once the guys finish work on it, so look for that in the first part of 2009.

Until then, you can tide yourselves over by catching the Antlers live as they continue to spread their magic around the continent with Fucked Up and The Strange Boys in September and later in October when they hit the CMJ Music Festival.
