Nashville’s Courtesy Drop Sign with Animal Style Records


Nashville, TN post hardcore band Courtesy Drop have signed with Los Angeles based indie Animal Style Records. The band’s LP, Songs To Drive To; Cry, And Make Love To, will be released on vinyl and digitally on October 15 (pressing info TBA).

There is no intended lyrical theme to Songs to Drive To; Cry and Make Love To as a whole, but the album conveys a powerful sense of frustration. Chalos describes the album as having been written from three different perspectives: depression, complacency, and reflection. "Quit running against the wind” could find a fitting home in many of the album’s tracks. In its succinctness, it could easily be interpreted as an incidental undertone to the entirety of the record, obtaining different meaning from each of the three perspectives Chalos wrote the album’s thirteen songs from.

Two tracks from the record, "Science is a Liar Sometimes" and "Mineral Extracts", are now streaming at www.courtesydrop.bandcamp.com.

The band kicks off its summer tour on July 3rd with a hometown show at Nashville’s The Owl Farm.
