Annuals Hit The Road

In support of their new release, Sweet Sister, Annuals are hitting the road tonight with The Most Serene Republic and What Laura Says for the first leg of their summer tour (dates below).

In 2006, the six members of Raleigh, NC group Annuals earned critical adoration with their debut album, Be He Me. Their expansive, energetic sound and tight pop sensibilities captured the hearts and ears of listeners and critics alike, propelling them toward the next step in their career: their first major-label release, Such Fun, on Canvasback Records in 2008. At an age where many are just starting their careers, Annuals, armed with a reputation for solid songwriting and several years of experience, now goes back to the formula and sound that first cemented their acclaim. The Sweet Sister EP marks band leader Adam Baker's return to the producer role, Annuals' return to a more tight-knit DIY collective, and a pure distillation of their trademark quirky pop experimentalism.
