The Antlers: Get Signed, Remaster LP, Go on Tour

A lot can happen in a short period of time. We know. Now, The Antlers know. NPR named The Antler's recent record, Hospice, Best Album of 2009 "So Far," which is, I guess, saying something. It is an amazing record though.

So what's happening to frontman/founder Peter Silberman and these Brooklynites? They just signed to Frenchkiss, a label who definitely has a forward-thinking ear for the business -- case-and-point...Passion Pit. The Antlers are going to release a remastered version of Hospice on Aug. 18 and are embarking on a nice set of North American dates with the likes of Au Revoir Simone, Cotton Jones and one date with Cymbals Eat Guitars. Look for these guys to make major moves on the scene because they are already.
