Social Studies have premiered a new single, Away For The Weekend, from their upcoming LP, Developer. The premiere was courtesy of the folks over at Vice.com, who describe the band as ‘like the Yeah Yeah Yeahs only sober.’ After you’ve been compared to the Yeah Yeah Yeahs and Fleetwood Mac on subsequent single releases, it’s hard to predict what will come next.
But you are invited to make your own comparisons….or just perhaps judge the track on it’s own merits…. scroll down and listen to Away For The Weekend for yourself!
Speaking of Developer, the CD and LP are now available in the Antenna Farm Store for pre-order. Of note: the LP comes with a free MP3 album download, including bonus track ‘No Oh No‘, a relevatory demo from the Developer sessions. All pre-orders will ship in early November, so you will have a copy in hand by street date (November 13th)…and as a bonus, all orders will include a limited edition Social Studies tour poster. So what are you waiting for?! Order Developer now from the AF store!
But back to Away For The Weekend. This is one of our favorite rock cuts of 2013, a defiant kiss off, unapologetic about leaving. The song’s stripped down linear structure rises to a loud, driving climax before the inevitable denouement, culminating with the quiet refrain “I’m not coming back.”
