Since the release of their second EP “Deadbeat”, Aesthetics versus Architecture has been busy at work doing anything and everything they can to get their name and music out there. In the past month alone they have played with long time friends Uh Huh Baby Yeah! as UHBY released their new EP under both Little Heart and STREAKER records. A mere week later they played with Beartooth, and band that has exploded into the mainstream due to their front man, Caleb Schomo, to a sold out crowd in Lexington. Playing shows isn’t the only thing that has kept the up and coming band busy. They have been busy writing and recording demos in preparation for their first full length album. The band plans to release a free digital album prior to the release of the full length.
The band is currently planning a summer tour, which will mark the second summer in a row on the band has been on the road. Last year they embarked on the Crystal Vision Tour with other Little Heart Alum’s Uh Huh Baby Yeah! and Your Favorite Hero.
