The triumphant return of the Michigan rockers gets a little bit closer with this exclusive stream of another song from the brilliant new album ‘Fell & Found’
When we heard Small Brown Bike were back together - with the original line-up, no less - we were excited. When we heard 'Fell & Found', their brilliant new album produced by the legendary J Robbins, our excitement went into overdrive: not only have the Michigan heroes captured what made us fall in love with them way back when they've evolved significantly.
One of the most influential punk bands to have come out of the Midwest in the late-90s / early-00s, Small Brown Bike released albums on No Idea and Lookout Records before splitting up in 2004. They played a couple of part-time reunion shows but it wasn't until late 2009 that the founder members decided to get back on the horse. Two seven-inches of all-new material later and the band found themselves working on an album; we've been playing it in the office for weeks and it's fantastic.
With that in mind, we're extremely pleased about this: the world premiere of 'A Minor Movement' from 'Fell & Found'. A few tracks have made their way onto the internet over the past couple of weeks but this is the first chance to hear one of the stand-out songs on the album. We'll be unveiling more Small Brown Bike stuff in a later issue of the magazine but for now, get stoked. Small Brown Bike - 'A Minor Movement' by RockSoundMagazine
We let Brighton pop-punk newcomers As It Is loose with our Instagram account for 24 hours. Thankfully we got it all back in one piece - save for some bumps and scrapes - and we learned a few things about them on the way.
