Annuals for Jan-Feb Tour


Just off tour with
Minus the Bear and gearing up for more…


By Blurt Staff



Tarheel country-fuzz popsters the Annuals, who recently completed a hugely successful tour with
Minus the Bear, have announced an upcoming 2009 headlining tour in support of their
sophomore record, Such Fun,
out now on Canvasback Music. This tour will see support from Jessica Lea Mayfield and friends What Laura Says, who are signed to Annuals’ label, Terpsikhore.  With two drum kits,
six members, loads of instruments and performances packed with energy, the Annuals live experience is called “an absolute
must for any music lover.  “


Such Fun embraces “a vast landscape of musical richness,”
combining frontman Adam Baker’s accomplished
songcraft with an instrumental palate that is even more colorful than their
previous album, Be He Me.  With a cover painting by Bob Ross,
a video for first song “Confessor” by Terry Gilliam’s right-hand man Daniel
Auber, and live shows that are winning over new fans every night, Annuals are being hotly tipped for
year-end best-of lists already.


Additionally, Annuals
recently received the honor of being influential tastemaker station WXPN’s
“Artist to Watch” for the month of November.  To learn more, check out
