Following the news of their upcoming US tour supporting Cursive frontman Tim Kasher, Albany, NY’s indie-punk hybrid Aficionado have just premiered the latest track “Honesty” off their forthcoming self-titled full length album out July 26th on No Sleep Records.

With ten songs produced and recorded with AJ Mogis (Bright Eyes, M. Ward, Cursive), and following their critically acclaimed ‘When It Comes To Creation’ EP, the songs on Aficionado’s latest are sharp and more compact with less of an emphasis on wowing people with over the top antics and more of a focus on the songs themselves.

The lyrical basis is centered on expositions of thinking for yourself, attaining what it takes to be a charismatic person, heeding to the realities of aging, and acceptance of change. Drawing from a range of influences such as Cursive, The Hold Steady, Sunny Day Real Estate and At the Drive In, Aficionado incorporates the sweet honey coated coo of Laura Carrozza which tinges the melodies and a harmonious male/female vocal styling alongside singer Nick Warchol.
