Self Defense Family Announce New MLP "Colicky" 9 July 2016

Colicky is the new Mini-LP by acclaimed cult independent band Self Defense Family. A dark, roiling post-punk gem written during a time of personal turmoil, Colicky is the group’s jagged, unflinching look at the disintegration of love and intimacy. The result is a tight and eclectic mini-LP that ranges from cerebrality and coolness to measured chaos.

The first single from the album “Brittany Murphy in 8 Mile” is now streaming at Brooklyn Vegan, along with a discussion of the song and album with SDF singer Patrick Kindlon. Brooklyn Vegan says of SDF “there’s truly no other band quite like them.”

Colicky is the second in Iron Pier’s mini-LP series, following Hollow Sunshine’s bold new all-electronic record Bible Sea, out July 29th, 2016. Colicky will be released on digital formats and on black and colored vinyl on September 9th, 2016. The vinyl edition is pressed on two-sided 45rpm 12-inch vinyl, with all vinyl colorways inserted into beautiful packaging that includes spot-UV designs on the outer sleeve, a series-specific OBI strip, and a printed inner sleeve.

Self Defense Family will tour Europe in October, dates below. Colicky will be available from the band on tour and from many fine European record stores.
