Word around the Bay Area is that raucous trio Nodzzz have signed to the all-too-well-known Woodsist label for Innings, their sophomore LP and follow-up to 2008’s self-titled effort on What’s Your Rupture. It seems that Nodzzz haven’t lost touch with their inner bro on this one, as the album title is an obvious baseball-themed shout-out to the early days when the band formed in Olympia, WA (apparently Anthony Atlas and Sean Paul Presley met while playing the aforementioned sport). No exact date on when this one will be heading “outta the park,” but I would expect possibly a release within the next couple of months.
Nodzzz will be settin out to cruise the West Coast at the end of this month and have a UK tour planned in mid-March with sister group The Mantles. You should probably go see them.
