Minnesota’s Tiny Moving Parts released a new track today ‘Common Cold’ from their upcoming LP on Big Scary Monsters, titled ‘Celebrate’, out May 20, 2016.
The track features Conor Murphy of Foxing and comes hot on the heels of the news that the trio will be supporting The Fall of Troy on tour in Europe and the UK in September. Celebrate is available for pre-order through Big Scary Monsters in Europe and the UK. Album art and full track list can be seen below.
Tiny Moving Parts drew 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 Mattheisen. The album was mixed by Vince Ratti (Circa Survive, The Wonder Years, Title Fight) and mastered by Sarah Register (Andrew WK, Brand New, Sia).
Mattheisen 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.
