Vetter Kids Announce “Logan” EP

Debut First Single “Chlorine Dream” via Brooklyn Vegan

Announce Fall Tour Dates

Texas Is Funny and Better Days Will Haunt You are excited to have joined forces for the release of Vetter Kids’ sophomore EP Logan. This EP follows up the band’s debut III which was released earlier this year on Texas Is Funny to praise from Brooklyn Vegan, CMJ, Impose Magazine, Daytrotter, and more. Vetter Kids have been keeping busy with near constant touring and recording since the Spring. While on tour this summer the band hooked up with Fred Weaver (Mono, Thou, Brass Bed) at his studio in North Central Pennsylvania to record Logan, an effort full of surprises and nuance, highlighting the band’s sound as they are and where they are headed. Recorded live, the record is loose, fun, and open, Logan represents Vetter Kids and all that punk means to them. With influences ranging from Small Brown Bike and The Get Up Kids to HUM, Pavement, and Smashing Pumpkins, Vetter Kids have found a sound centralized in loud guitars and dynamic songwriting, blending together the music of their formative years into something new and unpredictable.

Today the band are sharing the album’s first single, “Chlorine Dream” via Brooklyn Vegan. The album’s opening track finds the ever hard to pin-down Vetter Kids at their most aggressive, embracing their post-hardcore influences in a new light to stunning and anthemic results. This is a feel good shout along with bludgeoning riffs, as brutal as it is catchy. Brooklyn Vegan noted the changed from their previous material, stating,

“that first EP, which was a nice mix of grunge and post-hardcore, but the new single from Logan, “Chlorine Dream,” leans significantly toward the latter. The vocals are way harsher this time around, and yelled over rapid-fire stoner rock.”

“Chlorine Dream” is about the pressures of growing up and life’s responsibilities. As everyone around them is having kids and buying homes, Vetter Kids are keeping the dream alive, living out their desire to tour, play punk rock, skateboard, and hang out at the pool, regardless of how broke that may leave them. Get with the program? Maybe another time.
