The TOADIES (who are best remembered for their 1995 hit “Possum Kingdom“) have announced that they are going to release two EPs this year.
The first EP, a six song disc entitled Play.Rock.Music., is set for a May 8, 2012 release, and was recorded at The Bubble in Austin and produced by Chris “Frenchie” Smith. No word on the second EP yet, but stay tuned for updates.
Guitarist Clark Vogeler comments on the new material:
I’m anxious for people to hear the new tunes. The new EP definitely still sounds like Toadies, but the way Todd writes and the way we play has continued to evolve. The lyrics that Todd wrote for this record are some of his best while the overall delivery vocally and musically show more teeth than usual. This is also the first time that we’ve had Doni Blair play bass on a record and he’s just a machine, so I think this record sounds more like a band than the previous couple.
