Modern Skirts Announce New Album, Tour


Athens, Ga. piano-poppers Modern Skirts will release their third album, Gramahawk, on Jan. 15.

The album will reportedly feature “a song about [singer Jay] Gulley’s second DUI, an ode to ‘80s one hit wonder Jane Child, and a stomping, aggressive mantra about taking off his date’s top while being serenaded by a Mariachi band.” You can download “Bumper Car” here.
