Pardoner – “Are You Free Tonight?” [Video]

Pardoner have announced their highly anticipated new album Peace Loving People, out June 23rd via Bar/None Records. Lead single “Are You Free Tonight?” provides a clear mission statement from the band, careening wildly from warmly nostalgic alt-rock to frantic punk, moving away from prior efforts to mix disparate genres together and instead juxtaposing them sharply against each other. Max Freeland explains the song is “One of many on the album about our generation, the things we do to get by, and how we’re all goin nowhere fast. Kinda shows the 2 poles of our sound, from something warm and saccharine to something more sinister and violent.” The new video for the single was directed by Brian Riedel & Pardoner.

To celebrate the release, Pardoner will bring their blistering live show around the country. Of the release and upcoming tour the band says “it’s a little funny, a little sad, some parts are weird, some parts are normal. We hope you like the record and if you don’t you can throw it around like a frisbee.” All the current dates are below.
