Minnesota’s favourite band of brothers (and a cousin) Tiny Moving Parts have announced the release of a brand new LP on Triple Crown Records, titled ‘Celebrate’, out May 20, 2016. The album is now available for pre-order through Big Scary Monsters in Europe and the UK.
Tiny Moving Parts will embark on a full US tour tomorrow supporting The Wonder Years and have also announced new headlining tour dates for this summer with support from Prawn, Better Off and Free Throw (all tour dates below).
Tiny Moving Parts first started to draw attention with the release of their debut LP ‘This Couch Is Long & Full of Friendship’ in 2013 on Kind of Like Records, eventually signing to Triple Crown Records in 2014 who released their second LP ‘Pleasant Living’ later that year. For ‘Celebrate’, the band headed back into the studio with Greg Lindholm who recorded ‘This Couch Is Long & Full of Friendship’, and the result is a record that is complex, dynamic and shows a band all grown up.
“‘Celebrate’ is really about optimism. Things get stressful throughout life, and you just need to stay positive or you’ll destroy yourself,” explains guitarist/vocalist Dylan Mattheison. The album was mixed by Vince Ratti (Circa Survive, The Wonder Years, Title Fight) and mastered by Sarah Register (Andrew WK, Brand New, Sia).
Mattheison has played in Tiny Moving Parts with his cousins, brothers Matthew Chevalier and Billy Chevalier since junior high school, and their tight, mathy post hardcore-pop punk combination shows their skills in spades. Their live show is frenetic, and their musical prowess is impressive – the complexity of their songs makes it difficult to believe there are only three of them onstage.
