Family Bike To Release Debut Album / Brooklyn Vegan Premiere Posted 23 Apr 2015

The winds of change are whirling around the mid atlantic region.  New projects are heating up just in time for spring and summer.  One of the most exciting new bands to come out of North Carolina and Richmond, VA is the infectious FAMILY BIKE 

Featuring member, Karl Kuehn (also of Museum Mouth ) a playful duo has been realised with long time buddy, Taylor Haag on board for this new project.  A recent Stereogum premiere showcased the lead single “Idiot Boy,” which Kuehn describes as a “song for a German gymnast that I fell in love with during the 2012 Olympics!” And it certainly drips with the kind of unobtainable lust you get after seeing someone on TV: “If I could I would already have you in my bed, and erased all the memories of the brunette that came before me."

This past week, the energetic duo premiered the song "How I Survived November" over at BROOKLYN VEGAN. Take a listen and discover why we can't get enough of this release.  You can Pre-Order the album right HERE.
