Chop Shop Records’ experimental indie pop band The Republic Tigers will release a much-awaited 4-song EP, “NO LAND’S MAN,” on April 16, their first release since their 2008 debut album, “KEEP COLOR.” Self-produced and recorded in the band’s hometown of Kansas City, MO, “NO LAND’S MAN” includes three new songs, plus “The Nerve (Nervous Dancing),” an uptempo reworking of the song “The Nerve” from “KEEP COLOR.” “NO LAND’S MAN” will be available exclusively at independent record stores in celebration of Record Store Day on April 16. The digital configuration of the EP will be available the following Tuesday, April 19 at all online retailers. In addition to the EP, the band will release a colored vinyl 7” piece featuring “Merrymake It With Me,” the first track on the EP, and “Whale Fight,” an exclusive b-side. Prior to the release of “NO LAND’S MAN,” The Republic Tigers will hit the annual South By Southwest (SXSW) festival in Austin, TX. 2008’s “KEEP COLOR” drew widespread critical praise for the quintet. Blackbook described the album as “a tapestry of instruments and perfected harmonies,” and Filter asserted that the album “begs repeat listens.” Following the release of “KEEP COLOR,” The Republic Tigers performed their breakout song, “Buildings & Mountains,” on “Late Night With David Letterman,” and toured for months on end, opening for Travis both in the UK and Stateside, in addition to several U. S. headline runs of their own. In other news, the band has begun work in Kansas City on their second full-length album, expected to arrive later in 2011.
