Brooklyn-based band The Big Sleep released their third studio album, Nature Experiments, earlier this week via Frenchkiss Records. Check out two of the LP's tracks "Ace" and "Valentine" at BrooklynVegan, where they are both available for stream and/or download. Nature Experiments' cover art is above and you can find its tracklisting and a video for "Ace," below.

The band have just kicked off a string of North American dates last night (2/1), in New Haven, CT and a few of them on this trek will see the Brooklynites supporting a very impressive collection of bands (Archers of Loaf, Gauntlet Hair, Cloud Nothings, and more). One of those supporting dates happens to be A Place To Bury Strangers' March 21st show at the Empty Bottle. As mentioned, Chicago's great Apteka are also on the bill. Tickets are still available, though they may not be for much longer.
