Great news for one of Bloomington’s favorite new bands of 2010, Memory Map.  The band of talented rockers has recently signed with Indianapolis-based label, Joyful Noise Recordings.  The label is also home to local bands Push-Pull, Racebannon, and the Delicious, so expect more great news to come from for Memory Map.  As first order of duty, the label will be re-releasing the band’s debut album Holiday Band on 180gm Red or Black LP, CD, and digitally on May 10.  The album will be available for pre-order as early as April 5.  You can still listen to the album on the Memory Map bandcamp site, and if you still haven’t heard it by now, I highly recommend you give it a solid listen, the album is heavy on guitar (there are three in the band), but with equally explosive drums and vocals, and a strong creative energy overall.

Keep your eyes open for new news from Memory Map, and if you live in the Indianapolis area, check the band out live at Locals Only on March 17.

And lastly, there are just so many people in the band that whether they are practicing or performing on stage, it always feels like a party is going on that you definitely want to join.
