On February 2nd, Topshelf Records will release a split from Kind of Like Spitting’s Warren Franklin & The Founding Fathers, titled ‘It’s Always Nice To See You’.
Indie cult favorites Kind of Like Spitting formed in 1996 in Portland, Oregon. The band, led by singer-songwriter Ben Barnett, regularly toured in the US and released twelve albums in seven years. They broke-up in 2006 but Barnett re-formed the band earlier this year. The current lineup consists of Barnett, (guitar/vocals), Brian Grant (bass) and Dante Johnson (drums).
Their first track in nearly a decade, the hard-hitting “Bullied By A Bee”, premiered with VICE a few days back, take a listen at the link above. Any reposts would be much appreciated.
On the other half of the release – Rockford, IL indie pop/emo stalwarts Warren Franklin & The Founding Fathers’ most recent effort was a split with Mikey Erg (ex-The Ergs) earlier this fall on Count Your Lucky Stars. The band will release their next LP soon.
Information on pre-orders for ‘It’s Always Nice To See You’ will be announced shortly.
