Miss Massive Snowflake spent those early days of quarantine writing a love letter to their fans. After the 4 track ep Bobby and Sheila (2018), which saw the band embracing feedback and longer pieces, Miss Massive Snowflake returns with guitar swells, catchy synth lines, and clap along beats, balanced against sonic drones, Italian poetry, soundtrack based thought processes, and straight up rockers on the 10 track new album, Your Favorite Band.
Shane de Leon's songs shine with Andy Brown (Jessamine, Fontanelle) at production and instrumentation. The two have made four albums in the past decade with Jeanne Kennedy on vocals and bass. Your Favorite Band expands the group further with Ty Herman and Keith Martinez, as well as contributions from auxiliary Italian members Jacopo Andreini and Fabrizio Testa.
The band led off with the title track, Your Favorite Band, as a digital single / video in mid-December. The second single, Oh Shoot, came out January 15 in the same formats. The LP, cassette, and digital full length album will be released on January 22, 2021 by North Pole Records. The group began in 2004 and has released 5 full length albums, and multiple singles and EPs, while performing over 750 concerts in 10 countries and most States.
Limited to 500 copies this 10 track album is pressed on black vinyl with b/w lyric sheet and full color covers and labels.
