New Music - Constantines

Show of hands. Who’s getting excited for a new record from The Constantines? That’s what I thought. Me too. It’s been a long time since the Canadian rockers released Tournament of Hearts (2005), and even longer since the release of their first 2 neo-classic albums - Constantines and Shine A Light. They are currently finishing up their as-of-yet untitled 4th album, and are looking at an April release through their new home at Arts & Crafts.

The band has decided to wet our appetites by releasing their first ever 7” single. Both songs, A-side “Hard Feelings” from the forthcoming album and an exclusive B-side called “Easy Money”, are streaming at their myspace. “Hard Feelings” is the band at their tense, angry best - a bold reaffirmation from one of the best working rock bands that they mean business.
