Fast Romantics offer free track from Afterlife Blues, tour (2013)

Beats Per Minute is offering a free track download off of Fast Romantics’ sophomore album, Afterlife Blues. Titled “Friends,” the song captures the Canadian quintet’s love of pop music injected with Americana roots, a sound heard throughout their latest full-length offering (out now via Pipe & Hat/Fontana North).

While jubilant and energetic, Afterlife Blues lyrically finds singer/songwriter Matthew Angus diving headfirst into themes of dying and re-birth. This theme is on full display on the lead single “Funeral Song” which was given the full video treatment recently (link below).
