Artist: Fourth Of July Released: April 09. 2013 Album: Empty Moon Catalog #: HDR002

Fourth Of July is a band of brothers who make lyrical, raucous Folk Rock about the minefields of love, flyover country existentialism and the boozy social life of their hoemtown of Lawrence, Kansas.   They’ve released two records on Range Life Records, 2010’s “Before Our Hearts Explode!” and 2007’s “On The Plains”

Their latest LP, “Empty Moon” finds singer/songwriter Brendan Hangauer standing on the precipice, looking back at the intense final throes of a long love affair and forward, with an eagle eye, at the landscape of new beginnings. A record full of headlong melodies, drunken hope and heartache and startling insights into self and circumstance, “Empty Moon” is an exalted howl at the moon as the rest of the world rushes by.
