Anyway, hear Novels' lead single, "Austin's Birthday" after the jump. Feel free to download the song, too, as the band's been kind enough to offer it up as a free taste for DC9 readers.

Maybe you remember the video the band released for the song back in August? Yeah? No? Whatever: Watch it here. And catch the band at The Moon in Fort Worth on Friday, April 30, as it celebrates the release of the new disc.
