Reptar to Release Debut Album Body Faucet May 1st, Free Track Download and Tour Dates Announced

Reptar announced today that their debut full-length album, Body Faucet, will be released on May 1st! Produced by Ben Allen (Animal Collective, Gnarls Barkley, Washed Out), Body Faucet is the follow up to the group's heralded debut EP Oblangle Fizz Y'all, which Rolling Stone praised for its, "...blend of upbeat rhythms, reggae-infected vocals and psychedelic textures."

"When we were recording the album, we tried to strike a balance between giving each song it's own distinct character and identity and still having the album feel like a cohesive statement," said the members of Reptar.  "It feels like a long journey between a bunch of different parts of the same dream, some of them based in reality, some definitely not based in reality, and some based in space.  We tried to keep a physical feel to all of the songs, where each one makes you want to move in a different way, while at the same time trying to create a specific and distinct feeling and atmosphere for each one."

Building on the infectious dance-driven melodies established by the band on Oblangle Fizz Y'allBody Faucet finds the band delving deeper into world-music influences to compliment their unique blend of danceable and electro infused pop. As put by Spin Magazine, "Their playful electro-pop channels MGMT's debut-album psychedelic-yet-ready-for-the-masses sheen, and their rambunctious antics recall the Black Lip's punk bravado."

To celebrate the announcement, fans can now grab a free download of the lead track and first single from the record, "Sebastian." Listen to the new song below or click HERE to get the download from their newly redesigned, floppy-disk-inspired website. The band also unleashed a live performance trailer for the album with the song "New House" as the music bed.  Watch it below.

Reptar kicked off an extensive run of U.S. dates in Nashville, TN at The Basement on February 20th and will wind down on April 14th at New York's Bowery Ballroom. The band will return to Austin, TX for South By Southwest from March 15th-March 18th and are scheduled to perform at both "Sennheiser and Paste Present the Stages On Sixth" and "Filter Magazine's Showdown on Cedar Street" with a complete list of events to be announced in the coming weeks.

Reptar Signs to Vagrant! Debut EP out 8/2, Tour this Fall with Foster the People

We are very excited to announce that Reptar has signed to Vagrant Records! We will be working in partnership with Make Records Not Bombs on the upcoming Oblangle Fizz Y'all EP. The EP is due out digitally on August 2nd and an early taste of the EP is streaming on the bands Soundcloud page. Check out one of the tracks, "Stuck In My Id" below:

Stuck in my Id by reptarathens

The band will later take to the road to support the Oblangle Fizz Y'all EP by playing both Lollapalooza and Austin City Limits music festivals. A nationwide tour with Foster The People and Cults will immediately follow ACL festival in September. See all current dates below.

Hailing from the greater Athens-Atlanta-Asheville area, Reptar has been playing music ever since recorded history, but playing shows as Reptar since December 2008. Since then, the fast rising fabulous four has created quite a sensation around the Southeast. It all started with their debut 7" recorded with producer Ben Allen (Sean P. Diddy Combs, Gnarls Barkley, Animal Collective, and Matt & Kim) and released on Allen's label Make Records Not Bombs.

Reptar likes to first and foremost make people dance, and have been likened to The Talking Heads, Animal Collective, Prince, Marky Mark, Lake, Air, and the Jackson 5. The band is made up of Andrew McFarland, a Brazilian native, classically trained snare drummer, and sophmore at UGA, Ryan Engleberger, who currently attends Dartmouth College in the Artic Circle majoring in Jaco Pastorius’ fretless bass, Graham Ulicny, a hernianted African Soukous guitarist and AstroBioElectroPhysics student at the University of North Carolina in Asheville, and William Kennedy, greatgodson to Herbie Hancock’s ARP 2600 and connosiour of fine chocolate (85% cocao or above) and sophmore at UGA. With Reptar's powers combined, they can topple small buildings, smaltzy restaurants, and shmuppy next-door-neighbors with their devastating wall of synthesizers and samples. For more information on Reptar please visit their Facebook page.

1. Blast Off
2. Rainbounce
3. Context Clues
4. Stuck In My Id
5. Phonetics
