Artist Direct Premieres "Bite Your Lip" Video from New Cassettes -- Tour Dates with White Arrows & Family of the Year

New Cassettes has partnered up with Artist Direct to premiere the video for "Bite Your Lip," the second single off the band's critically-acclaimed sophomore album, Winterhead.  The video was shot in a warehouse in Austin, TX while the band was there for SxSW.  New Cassettes have also announced a fall tour supporting White Arrows & Family of the Year, joining them on the road in October hitting Boston, NYC, Philadelphia, DC, Atlanta and more.  The band will continue to tour through the Fall along the West Coast as well.  Expect additional tour dates to be announced shortly.

Winterhead was released in April on N13 Records via a partnership with MTV.  The album received rave reviews from critics and saw the band perform on Daytime TVLast.fm and Yahoo! Music.  Popmatters praises, "Winterhead is user-friendly, hook-driven, guitar rock."  The Owl Mag calls it "Post-punk at its best....astunner for your ears to find their way through."

Winterhead was a follow up to the Silent Guns Deluxe EP, which received accolades from AOL Spinner, PureVolume, Filter & RCRD LBL.  The album is a fascinating blend of indie rock, dance pop and new wave.  The five piece band from Northampton, UK have been leaving audiences swooning since 2005 with spiky guitars going head to head with propulsive rhythms and hook-filled choruses.  The album was mixed by Grammy Award-winning songwriter and producer Adam Schlesinger of Fountains of Wayne and sound engineer Geoff Sanoff (Yeah Yeah Yeahs, School of Seven Bells).

"Propulsive, catchy beat-driven dance pop that sits nicely alongside bands like Bloc Party and The Futureheads…their music makes me happy!"
Nic Harcourt

 “A rollicking Brit-rock number that's boisterous and propulsive like a cousin to Arctic Monkeys or early Franz Ferdinand.”
- Emily Zemler, RCRD LBL

Tight, new wave rock in the footsteps of Joy Division, if Joy Division were sunnier, and more sensitive about girls... combining clever dance rock and precocious balladry into a potent pop mix.”
- Suyeon Kim, MTV Iggy

“ If you like Arctic Monkeys or the Vaccines, check out this track from New Cassettes.
- AOL Spinner

“ New Cassettes have perfected the art of indie-rock cool with the awesomely infectious ‘Silent Guns’."
- Alyssa Coluccio, PureVolume

The British quintet plays dance-inspired post-punk not unlike The Vaccines and Arctic Monkeys.
Their songs are hook-heavy, confident and incredibly polished
- Gregory Robson, Absolute Punk
