MP3: – DD/MM/YYYY – “Digital Haircut”


They don’t have a name, but they now have a U.S. label to call home. Toronto, Canada’s DD/MM/YYYY (there’s no wrong way to say it) has signed on with Brooklyn’s Impose Records to re-release their critically acclaimed third LP, Black Square, digitally and as a limited edition cassette tape on September 15th.

After originally releasing Black Square in Canada in April — where it reached number two on the Canadian Campus & Community Radio Charts — DD/MM/YYYY has spent the majority of 2009 on the road with the likes of Don Caballero, sBACH and the Video Hippos. This after previous tours with Crystal Castles, Japanther and Dan Deacon as well as 12 live appearances at this year’s SXSW. The single “Bronzeage” was hailed by Pitchfork while the song “Digital Haircut” has been chosen as an official single for the Summer 2009 XGames. The limited edition Impose cassette of Black Square will feature new artwork and the never before-released song “Van Tan”.

To celebrate the U.S. release, DD/MM/YYYY is doing what they do best — touring. Having just played the JellyNYC Pool Party at the Brooklyn Waterfront on Aug 16th with Del tha Funkee Homosapien, Prince Paul and Gravytrain!!!, they will be playing a series of East Coast release parties before hitting the road for a U.S. tour as main support for These Arms are Snakes.
