This Town Needs Guns

Myspace // "Baboon" [mp3] // "Panda" [Video]

Oxford's math-heads This Town Needs Guns are about to embark on a tour of the UK in support of their debut album, Animals, which is out on October 13th through Big Scary Monsters. This tour seems to be hitting every corner of the UK and as well, the band will be sharing the stage with some top quality bands -- Rotary Ten, Pulled Apart By Horses, and Tubelord, just to mention a few. The CD will be available to pre-order from the label site this weekend, and on sale at all shows from September 18th onwards.

The band's debut album should do well to further the band's mastery of the math-pop song, as evidenced by several winning early singles. One thing that sets them apart from contemporaries Foals is that they evoke the more polished Chicago sound, at times coming off like Ghosts and Vodka with lyrics.

nice info. there could be, though, a site with lyrics from the songs, since the lyrics in their official website are not enough
