Little Big League joins Run For Cover, on tour with Hotelier and Foxing

We are excited to let everyone know that Little Big League have joined Run For Cover. The band originally got our attention with the release of their debut full length “These Are Good People,” which came out last summer on the always awesome Tiny Engines. Bridging the gap between 90′s college radio, mid-period Saddle Creek, and many of their Philly indie peers, Little Big League fuse angular, guitar driven songs with Michelle Zauner’s dynamic voice and sharp lyrics, creating some incredibly infectious music. Little Big League also released one of our favorite music videos in recent memory for last years single “My Very Own You.”  You can watch the video at the bottom of the post.

More recently, as of three days ago in fact, Little Big League released a split 7″ with the somewhat mysterious yet always awesome Ovlov. You can order that split (along with the band’s full length) from Tiny Engines, and stream the split below. 

Keep your eyes peeled for news on the band’s upcoming full length on Run For Cover, and check the tour dates below as the band is currently playing shows with Foxing and the Hotelier. Not a lineup you want to miss!
