Kick Off US Tour w/ Tim Kasher Tonight!
New Self-Titled Full-Length Album Out Now on No Sleep Records
Property of Zack
Following the release of their new, self-titled full-length album out on No Sleep Records, Albany, NY’s indie-punk hybrid Aficionado will be kicking off their full US tour as main support to Cursive front-man Tim Kasher tonight in Chicago.
With ten songs produced and recorded with AJ Mogis (Bright Eyes, M. Ward, Cursive), and following their critically acclaimed "When It Comes To Creation" EP, the songs on Aficionado’s latest are sharp and more compact with less of an emphasis on wowing people with over the top antics and more of a focus on the songs themselves. The lyrical basis is centered on expositions of thinking for yourself, attaining what it takes to be a charismatic person, heeding to the realities of aging, and acceptance of change. Drawing from a range of influences such as Cursive, The Hold Steady, Sunny Day Real Estate and At the Drive In, Aficionado incorporates the sweet honey coated coo of Laura Carrozza which tinges the melodies and a harmonious male/female vocal styling alongside singer Nick Warchol.
On their new album, Aficionado have created an opus based on the basic concept of pure camaraderie and solidarity amongst good friends, with the aim of simply making good music.
