SPRAYNARD streaming “Mable” LP in full

West Chester, Pennsylvania punk trio SPRAYNARD are streaming their upcoming full-length Mable via Stereogum magazine and below. Mable is the band’s first LP for storied independent label Jade Tree and officially out July 10th. “Applebee’s Bar” is an inventive piece of self-reflection, an observational work that acknowledges the way in which the physical environment that we were raised in shapes our future trajectory,” says Stereogum of the album’s leading track, continuing ” the following songs align well with its inaugural tone.”

Mable is available for pre-order from Jade Tree now, along with the band’s recently released Bench 7″ on the label. Spraynard will embark on a brief run of July album release shows in Boston, NYC, Philly and Connecticut next week, and will also tour this August with Dan Andriano in the Emergency Room, Jeff Rosenstock and Pet Symmetry (all tour dates below).

Spraynard began playing together in 2009, focusing on cultivating a scene organically around them and quickly becoming local favorites in the process. The band released their first full length Cut and Paste in 2010, and caught the attention of Asian Man Records, who released the band’s second full-length, Funtitled, in 2011. With their steadily growing popularity, the band began touring more extensively and spending more time in the nearby city of Philadelphia, while continuing to work hard to keep the West Chester scene alive. The endless touring and sudden popularity turned out to be more straining then expected, leading the band to announce a hiatus in 2012.

But the break did not last long and buoyed by the strong friendships between the members, the band announced the release of The Mark, Tom, and Patrick Show, a compilation record on Asian Man in 2014. The release was quickly followed by a sold out show in Philadelphia, and it was quickly evident that Spraynard’s fan base had only grown in their time apart. The remainder of 2014 saw the band embark on a full US headlining tour before venturing to the UK with Modern Baseball.  2015 has started off strong for the band with several shorter tour stints and appearances at Skate & Surf Festival and Bled Fest in May as well as the release of their new Jade Tree 7″ Bench.  The year looks to have much more in store for the band including the aforementioned summer tour with Dan Andriano in the Emergency Room and Jeff Rosenstock and the July release ofMable.

“Like many of the most important pop-punk bands, Spraynard has figured out that the genre’s juvenile reputation doesn’t preclude thoughtfulness. In fact, the continued vitality of pop punk owes a lot to deft songwriters like Graham” -The New Yorker

“From the first track to the last, it’s clear that despite the band’s year-long hiatus in 2013, they haven’t missed a step.” -Noisey

“Spraynard are a pop punk band who don’t forget that “pop punk” does in fact come from “punk”… sounding straight out of the era when hardcore bands just wanted to throw in a little melody” -BrooklynVegan
