L.A. duo Capital Cities announced that they have inked a deal with Capitol Records. The label will release the band’s self-title EP through digital outlets on December 18th. The brainchild of Ryan Merchant and Sebu Simonian, two jingle writers who met on Craigslist, Capital Cities has already created significant buzz in the blogospere with their first single “Safe and Sound,” which has been featured on The CW’s 90210, in promotional campaigns for HBO and Smart Car, and more than half a dozen other spots and has significant early airplay on multiple radio stations where it is currently charting on alternative radio.
The tracklisting for the Capital Cities EP is as follows: “Safe and Sound”, “Patience Gets Us Nowhere Fast”, “I Sold My Bed, But Not My Stereo”, “Center Stage” and “Love Away”.
Capital Cities live dates:
12/15 Costa Mesa, CA Detroit Bar
12/20 San Francisco, CA Rickshaw Stop
12/21 Sacramento, CA Ace of Spades
The band are currently finishing work on their debut album, coming in 2013.
