Alternative Press has just launched a stream of Small Brown Bike ’s new 7”, Composite Vol. 2 and is hosting an exclusive premiere of their “Hourglass” video. You can stream two new songs, “Some Optimistic” and “Never Walk This Alone,” and check out the exclusive premier of their video for the song “Hourglass” from Composite Vol. 1, by clicking here.

Scheduled for release on March 9th, Composite Vol. 2 will feature two new songs tracked this past January in the band’s home recording studio and mixed/mastered by Dave Feeny at Tempermill . The 7” will be limited to 1,100 physical copies (with digital download) and will be the second in their 7” series of new material for No Idea Records .

The band commented on the new material on Composite Vol. 2 and filming the video:

“We filmed this with some buddies in Orlando after The Fest 8. We wanted something to document Composite Vol. 1, so we had a BBQ and spent the afternoon playing music.”

The video for “Hourglass” was directed by Chase Heavener from FCTN and shot by Chase Heavener, Matt Staker, and Ben Reed. The live audio was captured by Ben Reed and Dan Jaquint.

The band will be playing Gainesville and Orlando while in Florida performing at the second annual Harvest of Hope Fest (HOH FEST) March 12th-14th in St. Augustine, FL.  They’ll also be performing a rare acoustic set at Orlando’s Park Ave CDs at 5:30pm before their show that evening.
