It’s not quite a snickers bar, and you might have to wait a little longer, but hell, there’s no better sandwich than a Sammies sandwich. Or should we say, The Sammies‘ Sandwich, out September 23rd on MoRisen Records? Charlotte-based and full of haste, they’re already hearing from Pitchfork and Prefix!
Sandwich is the ultimate crank-it-up-and-rip-the-knob-off party anthem, with dustings of punktastic indie rock spinkled on top for zest. Having been recorded in Kernersville, NC and produced by Ben Holst (Drive-By Truckers), Billy Bennett (Drive-By Truckers, The Whigs) and The Sammies themselves, it’s got a tight, in your face attitude that will keep you coming back for more. Picture the Strokes if they started “whoo-ing,” clap your hands to the beat, and you’ll be in the right ballpark.
They’ll be touring into November in support of the album. Dates after the jump. Hope you’re hungry folks…
