New York, NY (Top40 Charts) Brooklyn, NY's Stringer have signed with LA-based indie Wiretap Records, which will release the band's debut LP this summer. The first single "Ghosts" is now available on Spotify and was featured yesterday on Stereogum.
Frontman Max Kagan tells Stereogum, ""Ghosts" is a song about growing up in New York, watching your city change and feeling nostalgic for the "good ole days," while at the same time being resentful of those all too familiar complaints, the tired observations and the cottage industry that is New York nostalgia. The irony is not lost on us that the song is full of tired observations and familiar complaints while also being a commercial product itself, consisting of ruminations about the New York of old. Really makes ya think, but you shouldn't think you should jump around and smash things."

The single and upcoming LP was produced by Adam Reich (So So Glos, ex-Titus Andronicus).

As one of the resident "house bands" at the beloved - recently closed - NYC underground venue Shea Stadium, Stringer (known in a previous incarnation as Heeney) has been active in the Brooklyn DIY scene for several years (most recently featured in the Rolling Stone doc 'DIY in NYC'). Over the years, the band has played shows with the likes of Titus Andronicus, So-So Glos, Porches, Speedy Ortiz, Slothrust and SWMRS to name a few.

About Stringer:
Max Kagan & Mark Fletcher, both native New Yorkers, met on 12/12/12 during a 24-hour long noise show at their beloved hometown venue/clubhouse Shea Stadium. After joining forces with powerhouse drummer Johnny Spencer, the three have been making music under various names ever since. The most refined & fully-formed version of that collaboration can be found in the form of Stringer, who, with the addition of Riley Zimmer (bass), have been a band since late 2015. Stringer likes eating ethnic food & drinking at old man bars that open at 8am.
