Following the release of the short sharp burst of their debut album, Adventuring, last year, Calories return with sophomore album, Basic Nature, released on September 13th via Tough Love Records. A rich and varied record, Basic Nature sees Calories compliment strong melodic hooks with frenetic noise, recalling such underground titans as Hot Snakes, Cap 'N' Jazz and No Age. Their dedication to both craft and energy is a trait that has seen the band capture audiences around the UK, playing alongside The Thermals, Sky Larkin, Dananananaykroyd, Lovvers and Johnny Foreigner. Their first single, 'FFWD', will be released via digital download only on August 30th, accompanied by a video by acclaimed director Ollie Evans (Foals, Klaxons). www.myspace.com/caloriesband
