The Skinny: Check out the exclusive premiere of the song “Curses and Verses” from the Baltimore-based new wave rockers, Jumpcuts. The band recently announced their limited edition 7″ Single in support of their upcoming album Fiber Optic Bondage. The menacingly moody, synth-laden song is but a small taste of what’s coming on the forthcoming full-length, which is set for an early 2016 release.

Jumpcuts founder and Baltimore-based songwriter, vocalist and multi-instrumentalist, Andy Shankman, had this to say about the new track: “‘Curses and Verses’ is the updated version of putting your money where your mouth is – it’s the grey line we all walk between a choosing our actions and weighing the outcomes.”
