By Alex HudsonWhen Modernboys Moderngirls released I Might as Well Break It in 2009, we noted that the Toronto rock outfit "remain a band with a promising future." Now they're looking to live up to that potential with a new studio album.
The band, who are now a four-piece with the addition of lead guitarist Milan Schramek, will release their album Let's Do It! on June 30. According to a press release, it's a "speaker burnin' rock'n'roll record that melds the genres of music they most love -- garage blues, soul, '50s pop, classic and '90s rock."
You can get a taste of the new album by watching a video for the single "How Am I Gonna Get It?" below. The clip for this hard-hitting tune uses masks, makeup and black lights to ghoulish effect.
Prior to the album release, Modernboys Moderngirls will play a handful shows at NXNE in Toronto. See the schedule below.
