Tonight at J&J's Pizza in Denton, Bad Sports will celebrate the release of its debut full-length--a few days in advance, even. Though the self-titled album won't technically be released by Douchemaster Records until next Tuesday, the label made sure the band got its box of LPs in time for tonight's show.
Admittedly, this album release kinda snuck up on us--even though, last we heard, the recording was finished back in the summer.
This afternoon, we called frontman Oville Neeley to have him explain why the album's release was delayed.
"'Cause we're lazy," Neeley says with a chuckle. "We were dragging our ass on getting the art work done."
Thankfully, we've already been enjoying a good chunk of these songs since Bad Sports handed out a few CD-Rs after its killer performance at this year's DOMAs. One of the songs we've been blaring? It's the same as one the band's kindly letting us offer up as a free download for your listening pleasure, "Nothing But Agitation." Grab it after the jump.
