Occult Detective Club To Release Sophomore Album CRIMES 2/15

Occult Detective Club is proud to announce the release of their sophomore album! Crimes will be released on February 15th through Alive Records on CD, Digital and LTD. Edition Vinyl formats (The first vinyl pressing of 500 copies comes with free MP3 download).

Occult Detective Club is formed by Alx Anguiano on vocals/guitars, Andrew Messer on guitars, Chris Reeves on drums and Tyler Shults on bass.

With echoes of The Jam, Boys, Clash, Sham 69 and the passion and forward thinking of Billy Bragg, on their new album Crimes, Occult Detective Club is the sound of today with a nod to the past. Taking a cue from an increasingly active underground Texas music scene, they play a mix of first wave punk and new wave music with a focus on catchy choruses, thoughtful lyrics and a DIY mentality.

The Denton, TX-based band previously released their ten-song debut LP Tortures last spring on Red Lounge Records, and fellow Texas gore-hounds Hex Dispensers covered their song "I'm A Ghost" on the B-side of one of their latest singles.

Occult Detective Club will be kicking-off their Crimes 2011 Tour with a hometown Record Release Show in Denton, TX on Friday, February 25th (tour dates below).
