Annuals Team Up with The Most Serene Republic for Coast-to-Coast Tour

April 30th, 2010

Raleigh, NC six-piece Annuals are preparing for a cross-country co-headlining spring tour with Canadian counterparts The Most Serene Republic. The tour will start in the Midwest on May 5 and stretch to both coasts, with Terpikhore collective and NC friends What Laura Says supporting. The band recently released their Sweet Sister EP, available now on Banter Records, and are preparing to bring their new music out on the road.

Annuals’ 2006 indie debut, Be He Me, became an overnight success in the social media world, introducing the band to a multitude of new challenges and experiences, including touring around the world, and eventually seeing their first major-label release Such Fun, on Canvasback Records in 2008. The band has now made the next major move in the career by taking a step back, returning to a more tight-knit DIY collective for this new EP, with band leader Adam Baker back in the producer role.

In 2006, the six members of Raleigh, NC group Annuals earned critical adoration with their debut album, ‘Be He Me’. Their expansive, energetic sound and tight pop sensibilities captured the hearts and ears of listeners and critics alike, propelling them toward the next step in their career: their first major-label release, ‘Such Fun’, on Canvasback Records in 2008. At an age where many are just starting their careers, Annuals, armed with a reputation for solid songwriting and several years of experience, now goes back to the formula and sound that first cemented their acclaim. ‘The Sweet Sister’ EP marks band leader Adam Baker’s return to the producer role, Annuals’ return to a more tight-knit DIY collective, and a pure distillation of their trademark quirky pop experimentalism. 

The Sweet Sister EP will be released on Banter Records on March 30, and Annuals will tour behind it in the spring.
