Cornwall, England’s Bangers have released the first song, “Making Friends” from their upcoming debut album Small Pleasures for free online. The release, for fans of bands such as Iron Chic and The Dauntless Elite, follows on from a handful of vinyl releases and a collection CD called Dude Trips, and is a split release between Specialist Subject Records in the UK and Kiss of Death Records in the US.
In an interview with vocalist and guitarist, Roo Pescod, he shed some light on their band’s name: “We’re called Bangers because we’re hopeless at naming bands. Basically when we were writing songs in the beginning, if Andrew liked them he’d say that they were bangers so I pushed for the name. Making every song a banger is sort of what we’re about, or at least what we try for.”
You can download the song for free right here. The album will be available on CD and vinyl (200 copies on red vinyl, 400 copies on black vinyl) on the 9th of May 2011.
