New music from Apex Manor - "Under the Gun"

Sadly, the band The Broken West split up in 2009 which seems to have gone unannounced until now. The band played a great set at the XX Merge festival in Carrboro in July 2009 (check out photos and a review here), but the split must have been after that.

Well have no fear, because frontman Ross Flournoy has a new band called Apex Manor who will release their debut album, The Year of Magical Drinking, via Merge Records on January 25. Download the fantastic, uber-catchy song "Under the Gun" that kicked off the creative process for the album below.

The band will hit the road as a trio in 2011 which will include stops as SXSW in Austin. We'll keep you posted if they announce any Triangle dates.
