San Antonio-based band The March Divide will issue “Music for Television” on July 9th via Seattle’s Dead Letter Records label.  The new EP is the follow-up to the band’s debut album Music for Film, released earlier this year.  “So It Goes,” the lead single from “Music for Television” has premiered exclusively via BLURT, and The March Divide has announced two weeks of tour dates, launching in Tulsa on Wednesday.

After six years away from music after ending his Emo-era band, The Conversation, band leader Jared Putnam realized that getting back in wasn’t so easy. “When I formed The March Divide and decided to start working on an album, I had a really difficult time,” he says. Upon the release of the band’s debut Music for Film, however, it was readily apparent that half a dozen years away had not taken a toll on Putnam’s songwriting chops. Called “impressively hooky” by American Songwriter, Austin’s NPR affiliate KUTX simply stated, “This album kicks butt.”

Music for Film, which showed off Putnam’s love of The Promise Ring, Cursive, and Elliott Smith, spawned the singles “Still Analog,” which popular vinyl lovers website The Vinyl District said could be its “proverbial theme song,” and “Jose Cuervo” which racked up thousands of Soundcloud streams and coverage from Under The Radar for its moving slice-of-life video. One fan plainly commented, “How this song is not more popular is beyond me.”

“Music for Television” by The March Divide is scheduled for release on July 9th, 2013.  The single “So It Goes” is streaming and available for download now. Band leader Jared Putnam is available for interviews.  Contact Josh Bloom at Fanatic for more information.
