Advertisement are a five piece out of Seattle and they kind of sound like War on Drugs doing garage rock tunes. I’ve heard the whole album and it rocks. This is one to get excited about. Here’s some info from the PR team.

Advertisement began as an interconnected group of childhood friends growing up on the fringes of the Seattle area. Their early collaborations primarily experimented with increasingly jarring forms of punk, culminating in the bands Nasti and Vacant Life – both of which have pressed records through Iron Lung Records , the West coast’s eminent noise and hardcore label. Inspired by the increasingly stark juxtaposition between Seattle’s booming, tech-fueled urbanism and the landscape’s natural beauty, guitarists Charlie Hoffman, Carl Marck , and Ryan Mangione and drummer TJ Main recollected with the intention of creating imaginative ways out of the endlessly anxiety provoking flow of modern life. Turning away from both the nihilism of punk and the escapism of rock, they holed up, often in the claustrophobic confines of their shared house, and chipped away at developing a style which could hold both sobered cynicism and willful optimism in cartoonish harmony.
