Maps & Atlases Announce New Record/Free MP3

MAPS & ATLAS DEBUT RECORD PERCH PATCHWORK SET FOR JUNE 29, 2010
BAND GIVE AWAY FREE MP3 "SOLID GROUND"

Maps & Atlases
Barsuk Records has announced that Chicago's progressive songsmiths Maps & Atlases are set to release their debut album on June 29, 2010. Entitled Perch Patchwork, the record was produced by Jason Cupp (The Elected, Nurses, Cast Spell). The band's unique style melds the technicality of progressive music and the idiosyncrasies of art rock into a fascinating and oddly accessible sound all their own. Known for their virtuosic musical ability, Maps & Atlases write pop songs with a magnificent aptitude for texture and a distinctive blend of both the intricate and organic.

The members of Maps & Atlases met in Chicago while attending art school, and have released two EPs through indie label Sargent House. While Tree, Swallows, Houses showcased the band's more technical side, the subsequent You And Me And The Mountain presented more earthly and digestible songs that earned comparisons to TV On The Radio, Deerhoof, Can, and even Prince.

The band is hitting the road for a pre-album release tour this spring with Drink Up Buttercup and Frightened Rabbit. Full dates below.
