Chicago indie rockers Minor Characters welcomed their great, self-titled debut in November of 2011. On February 25, they'll self-release the follow-up to that album, titled Heal Me, Healing Times, and we're proud to premiere its lead single and opener "Heal Me." Much like their debut, the new EP features whip-smart songwriting and a wide range of dynamics. Grab the track above and/or take a listen to it at the bottom of this post. A teaser clip for Heal Me, Healing Times can also be found below.

Minor Characters will be playing an album release show for Heal Me, Healing Times at Lincoln Hall on March 1. Pet Lions and Brother George are also on the bill, and advance tickets are on sale now. The guys will also be doing a bit of touring this spring, which includes a stint at SXSW in Austin, TX.
