Watch the New EP Trailer for Team Spirit's Self-Titled DebutBy Noisey Staff
Peep this lighthearted EP trailer from VICE fam Team Spirit, the new project (that we've already told you all about because we <3 them) from former Passion Pit synth wizard Ayad Al Adhamy, featuring animation from Swedish duo Hannes and Johannes. Adhamy's new gig finds him discarding emotive electronics in favor of crunchy garage rawk, guitars and all. Team Spirit's self-titled EP drops April 9th on VICE Records, and will be complemented by a series of videos for each of its songs (à la MJ's Moonwalker). The band will also embark on a brief tour with The Joy Formidable in mid-April. Check the dates below:
04.12 - Phoenix Concert Theatre - Toronto, ON
04.13 - Théâtre Corona Virgin Mobile - Montreal, QC
04.14 - Upstate Concert Hall - Albany, NY
