Everyone’s new favourite band from Minnesota, Tiny Moving Parts, just announced a new album and we’re stupid excited about it. Titled Celebrate, the new LP is set to release on May 20th via Triple Crown Records.
Tiny Moving Parts first started to draw attention with the release of their debut LP This Couch Is Long & Full of Friendship in 2013 on Kind of Like Records, eventually signing to Triple Crown Records in 2014 who released their second LP Pleasant Living later that year.
For Celebrate, the band headed back into the studio with Greg Lindholm who recorded This Couch Is Long & Full of Friendship, and the result is a record that is complex, dynamic and shows a band all grown up. “Celebrate is really about optimism. Things get stressful throughout life, and you just need to stay positive or you’ll destroy yourself,” explains guitarist/vocalist Dylan Mattheison.
