Published Feb 14, 2012Toronto rock'n'rollers Teenage Kicks earned our attention last year with their Rational Anthems EP. Rather than hunker down and prepare a full-length, the group are looking to keep the new music coming with their very own Teenage Kicks Singles Club and a new EP.
The EP is called Be on My Side, and the band will launch it with a release show on March 2 at the Horseshoe in Toronto. Get event details over at Facebook.
In addition to the EP, the band recently unveiled their own Singles Club. Each release will be a two-song digital download, and all you have to do to receive them is sign up over at the band's official website.
The first single collects the "Middle of the Night" (which also appears on Be on My Side) and the B-side "Fake Problems." It came out on February 1 and you can hear the A-side below.
Also below is Teenage Kicks' forthcoming tour schedule, which includes lots of gigs in the eastern half of Canada and finds the band playing shows with Treble Charger, Bend Sinister, Wildlife and more.
