THING OF THE DAY….
Math The Band (the band without an s at the end of their name from Providence, RI) will release their new album, ‘Stupid and Weird’ on Feb 4th via the Anchor Brain label. Funded in part by their fans, they let the kickstarter supporters choose the first single. “January 2008” rose to the top and the band is now giving it away for free. There is also an accompanying music video.

The human locomotives known as Math The Band are back with a new album proving that energy is contagious. As anyone attending their live shows or even just following them on social media knows, this duo gives and gives and gives without ever getting exhausted. Touring the world nearly nonstop for years (including a leg with Andrew W.K.), Math The Band recently set forth to record their first album completely free of laptops and software. Wanting to harness the power of a full live band, with everything from vintage analog gear to a live horn section, they appealed to their fans for funding help. Math The Band received just as much back as they’ve put in all this time, more than doubling what was needed for the album. Of course, being unfamiliar with the word “brakes”, they only upped their dedication and are using the money to add both a video game and comic book to their album, make four music videos, plus record an entire second album as well (also to be recorded with their new live instrument arrangement). Math The Band are more than a spectacle of limitless human endeavor, they are an invitation to share in the frenzy.
