The Split Squad039s debut album Now Hear This is OFFICIALLY set for US release January 21 2014
After much finagling, kvetching, and hand-wringing, we are happy to announce that our debut album, Now Hear This... will be available for general consumption on January 21st, 2014 (Happy New Year!). It will be available in CD format, and for digital download, from CD Baby, iTunes, Amazon, and all the other usual suspects, as well as from us directly.

A 12' vinyl version of the album (with a free digital download) will be available in late February, but we will be happily taking vinyl pre-orders after January 21st.

Featuring 13 tracks, including a cover of The Small Faces'“Sorry She's Mine,” Now Hear This... is the unmistakeable product of its members common influences, rooted in the classic powerpop, punk, glam and garage rock of the 1970s and '80s. Produced by Seattle music icon Scott McCaughey, best known as a founding member of cult favorites The Young Fresh Fellows and the Minus 5, who has also played and toured extensively with R.E.M. Adding to the star power are guest appearances by McCaughey, Peter Buck (R.E.M.), Hugo Burnham (Gang of Four), and Mike Gent (The Figgs). The album was recorded in the
summer of 2012, at Woolly Mammoth Studios in Waltham, MA.
