Bass Drum of Death @ Glasslands on 4/22 (more by Brook Bobbins)

Oxford, Mississippi duo; Bass Drum of Death have had one hell of a whirlwind year so far. April 12th, marked the release of their debut LP GB City, via their hometown's own Fat Possum Records.

They managed to generate tons of hype down at SXSW this year, playing over seven different showcases in a matter of four days. In the past few months, the duo has toured with the likes of Smith Westerns, Crocodiles, Unknown Mortal Orchestra, and more.

Daytrotter has just posted a recent session with the group, which you can check out here.

Bass Drum of Death will hit Chicago on June 19th, to play Empty Bottle with Hanni El Khatib, Pujol, and The Pleats. Tickets are still available.

On April 4th, they made their television debut on Fuel TV playing the track "Get Found." Label mates; MellowHype (whose LP BlackenedWhite is up for pre-order) performed their track "64" that night as well, and Bass Drum of Death joined in. You view footage of both performances after the jump.
