Brooklyn, NY's Acid Dad will release their debut EP, Let's Plan A Robbery, on February 26th, 2016. "Fool's Gold," the first track off the EP, premiered on Stereogum this morning, calling it "…a kaleidoscopic, rebellious tune, capturing the buoyant feeling of city shenanigans"; the song can also now be streamed and shared via Soundcloud: https://soundcloud.com/aciddadnyc/fools-gold-un-mastered. The EP has gotten early praise from Newsweek, which named it one of the 'Nine February Albums We Can't Wait To Listen To', and will also be released as a limited edition cassette tape via Knife Tapes, which can be pre-ordered here.

Although barely 18-months-old, Acid Dad have quickly established themselves as one of the tightest, tireless, and most energetic live bands in the Brooklyn scene, with Oh My Rockness deeming them one of the site's 'Hardest-Working Bands of 2015.' The foursome – all in their early 20s and two of whom were enrolled full-time at NYU until recently – have already released a string of infectious psych-punk singles that have earned them nods from the likes of NYLON, Village Voice, Impose, HERO, CMJ, The Deli, and more.

Let's Plan A Robbery is a magnetic four-song EP self-recorded by the band in upstate New York throughout December 2015 and January 2016. Expanding upon their previous singles, the EP ranges from the explosive drive of opener "Don't Get Taken" to the psych-sway of "Fool's Gold"; from the dynamic charge of "Digger (Gotta Get That Money)" to the languid, hypnotic closer "Shoot You Down," with guitarists Vaughn Hunt or Danny Gomez handling lead vocals on every other track. Cover artwork can be seen below.

Acid Dad – which recently sold-out a hometown show at Baby's All Right – will head out on a lengthy U.S. tour in late February, beginning with a stretch of dates with White Reaper that kick off on the 28th in Chattanooga, TN. The band's tour dates will continue through April 21st in Chicago, IL, and include an April 8th show in Los Angeles, CA. Acid Dad are also confirmed to perform on The Special Without Brett Davis in Brooklyn, NY on February 24th, as well as festivals including SXSW, the Savannah Stopover, Treefort Music Fest, and Canadian Music Week.

Friends since childhood, Patrick Phillips (vocals/guitar) and Tyson Moore (lead guitar) found each other again in a Bushwick basement where they began writing much of what would become Honduras' early material. Inspired by late 70’s punk, but mixing in aspects of garage and indie that followed, Honduras played Brooklyn’s DIY venue scene tirelessly and garnered a reputation for amazing live performances, with comparisons to bands like Sex Pistols and Buzzcocks. After bringing in Josh Wehle to play drums they added a new bass player in Paul Lizarraga (the Denzels) to round out the band’s signature polished edge. Their more recent writing has included elements of krautrock and psych to their already energetic tracks for an intellectually developed and interesting sound. While picking up additional attention from serious tastemakers like Rolling Stone, NME, Noisey, Impose, and Nylon along the way, the group has shared stages like Bowery Ballroom and Music Hall of Williamsburg with notable acts like Blur, Metz, Fidlar, Twin Peaks, Drowners and the Kaiser Chiefs. The first single from their upcoming debut LP, Paralyzed, is currently in regular rotation on Sirius Radio XMU and the band was just featured in NME's On The Radar section. On stage the formula continues, where four good friends exhibit a savvy devil-may-care tightness. Their engaging stage presence is both apropos to their influences and forever exciting to witness in a young and surging project. Their upcoming debut LP is called Rituals, and will be released in Early 2016.
