Oakland, CA - June 2, 2017 - Oakland quartet MT. EDDY today released their debut album Chroma via Uncool Records. The album is available to steam/download now via iTunes, Spotify, and Apple Music. Consequence of Sound premiered the album in its entirety earlier this week praising, "Drawing influence from California punk and indie rock, the 10-track collection is perfectly crafted to introduce audiences to the Oakland outfit's brand of alternative."
"We've been working on these songs and waiting to release this album for a long time," Armstrong told Consequence of Sound. "Now that the lineup's solidified and the record's done, we are so excited to share this new band with the world."
RollingStone.com broke the news of the album's release last month and premiered the band's blistering debut single "Metaphor", proclaiming, "The sleek, fast-paced track shows a sharper musical attitude from the 18-year-old" (referencing singer/guitarist Jakob Armstrong's songwriting).
Next month, MT. EDDY will embark on a US tour in support of the release. A complete list of upcoming live dates and ticket information can be found HERE.
