FROM THE NEWS NEST: Writer Announces New 7” Release and Tour Dates

March 07. 2012 | By Collin Welbon

Art-rock duo, Writer, just embarked on their spring tour. While on tour, their new two-song 7” vinyl, Family Dinner will be released by Pretty Awesome Records, the non-profit organization that works together with musicians and artists to benefit charity. The brothers, James and Andy Ralph, and Pretty Awesome Records selected the Autism Tree Project Foundation as the charity that will benefit from a portion of the record’s proceeds.

To celebrate the release of Family Dinner and their spring tour, Writer has created a teaser video featuring the title track from the soon-to-be-released 7” as well as footage from last summer’s North American tour.
