Philadelphia punks Timeshares have signed with Wiretap Records. The band release its three-song In The Ground EP last year, and have just debuted a new single + video “Siren Sound,” which BrooklynVegan describes as, “a fine example of this band’s ability to churn out warm, grizzled heartland punk.”
Bassist (and songwriter) Mike Natoli says, “I had just moved back to my hometown and got reluctantly dragged to my 10-year high school reunion. While I wasn’t necessarily questioning myself, it still managed to stir up some weird thoughts and feelings about what I was doing with my life.
I wanted to write about the subject from the reverse perspective of “A Plea From A Cat Named Virtute” by The Weakerthans and make it a proposition to my golden retriever Buddy. This wild idea that we could trade lives and he could go out on my adventures while I got to blend in with the scenery and not talk to anyone was something that seemed mutually beneficial.”
