Published Feb 18, 2013A year ago this month, Vancouver pop-rock outfit Rococode dropped their debut album with Guns, Sex & Glory, and now they're preparing to follow it up with a brand new single and a North American tour.
The digital single pairs "Follow You 'Round" with the B-side "Rocky, Too (I'm Falling for You)," and will arrive on March 13. The songs were produced by Ted Gowans (Tegan and Sara, Louise Burns) and mixed by Caleb Shreve (Ted Leo, Stars).
According to a press release, "While continuing to embrace the beauty of sonic extremes, the new material takes on a more spacious and sprawling demeanour without losing the towering hooks and powerful rhythms that have become the staples of their musical palette."
