Pears Direct Hit

Fat Wreck Chords bands PEARS and Direct Hit will be releasing a split album called Human Movement on November 3rd. This 12 track album will feature five new songs from each band, plus one cover from the other band’s material. Both bands will be touring but PEARS has a more extensive tour happening soon. They will be playing in Brooklyn, NY at Knitting Factory with Big Ups and Russian Girlfriends on October 18th.

Human Movement is both a fun, genre-bending experiment between friends & touring partners, and a well-aimed musical brick lobbed at those in power! For more on the release, check out what front-man Nick Woods from Direct Hit, and Brian Pretus from PEARS had to say about joining forces:

Nick Woods: “We’re really proud of how this record turned out, not only because all the tunes on it are rippers, but because we got to collaborate on it with some of our best friends. Splits like these rarely work with everyone involved playing to the others’ strengths. I’m really glad the stars aligned here in a way where the whole thing came together as a unified release, from one of the coolest record labels in the biz right now.”

Brian Pretus: “We’ve been talking about doing this for a long time, since like one of our first tours, which was with Direct Hit. It’s pretty surreal that we finally got to make it happen, and I couldn’t be happier with how both sides of this thing turned out.”
