 Check Out: River City Extension   Welcome to Pittsburgh (CoS Premiere)

New Jersey’s own River City Extension spent much of last year pounding pavement and playing festivals to support their 2010 debut, The Unmistakable Man. Now, the genre-blending folk-rock 8-piece is set to return with their sophomore album, which they’ll support with a brand new string of tour dates.

The new album is called Don’t Let the Sun Go Down On Your Anger, and is due June 5th from XOXO Records / Anchor & Hope Music. Promised to be “stylistically adventurous”, the 14-track outing was produced by Brian Deck (Modest Mouse, Iron & Wine). For a taste of where this adventure will take you, have a listen to “Welcome to Pittsburgh”. With its jangly guitars, breezy strings, and castanets, the summery jam sounds more fit for a Latin American beach than the Steel City. Download the track just ahead.
