Two of the Triangle's most acclaimed indie rock bands, The Rosebuds and The Comas, have new albums hitting stores in April.
Ivan Howard and Kelly Crisp, better know as The Rosebuds, will release the follow-up to 2005's Birds Make Good Neighbors on April 10. The album is titled Night of the Furies. Prior to the release the band will support Yo La Tengo for five shows on the East Coast before heading to Russia to play a one-off show opening for Ian Brown. The band will then return to the states and continue touring in the south through March and make their way to SXSW in Austin, TX.
Former Chapel Hill rockers, now residing in Brooklyn, The Comas will release their first album for Vagrant Records on April 17. The album, Spells, will feature 10 songs produced by Bill Racine (Mates of State, Mercury Rev, Rogue Wave). The band signed with Vagrant in 2005 after releasing two albums on the North Carolina based label Yep Roc. Like The Rosebuds, The Comas will be making a stop at SXSW in March. No other tour dates have been announced.
The Rosebuds will open for Yo La Tengo at Cat's Cradle on February 6 and will headline at Kings on March 6. Keep posted for more tourdates for both bands as well as media previews once we get closer to the release dates.
