SPIRIT ANIMAL SIGN TO ATLANTIC RECORDS/MAY 29 STAGE AE

NEW SINGLE “YEAH!” STREAMING NOW WITH OFFICIAL MUSIC VIDEO

 ATLANTIC DEBUT LP COMING SOON

 “YEAH!” AVAILABLE TODAY AT ALL DSPS AND STREAMING SERVICES

 SPIRIT ANIMAL – “YEAH!”

Atlantic Records has officially announced its signing of Brooklyn-based alternative band Spirit Animal with today’s premiere of their eagerly awaited new single. “YEAH!” is available now at all DSPs and streaming services.

“YEAH!” is joined by an official music video, directed by Dan Kennedy (Anderson East, Connor Oberst, Usher) and Rafatoon (Gary Clark Jr, Foster The People), which premiered earlier today via Billboard who stated, “The song offers a glimpse at the myriad of skills the band has to offer…” adding, “with news of their Atlantic deal, there’s plenty to shout about.”

“’YEAH!’ is about fame’s relationship to the real and the fake,” says Spirit Animal singer Steve Cooper. “This tornado of pop culture touchstones – similar to Billy Joel’s ‘We Didn’t Start the Fire’ or the bridge to Madonna’s ‘Vogue’ – makes it all mean something, but you’re not sure what. You’re supposed to question it, the way the modern world makes you question yourself.”

Spirit Animal are currently in the middle of a wide-ranging tour schedule that includes headline shows and dates supporting Incubus, The Struts, and fellow Atlantic recording group Fitz and the Tantrums (see attached itinerary). The trek also includes stops at a number of upcoming festivals, including Somerset, WI’s Northern Invasion (May 13th), Columbus, OH’s Rock on the Range (May 18th), and Syracuse, NY’s 95X Big-X-Cuse Music Festival (June 16th), For more information, please visit www.spiritanimal.us.

Wielding airtight songcraft and a genre-defying sound that proves 808s and guitars can coexist in harmony, Spirit Animal make music that both bottles and transcends the moment. The Brooklyn, NY-based band – singer Steve Cooper, guitarist Cal Stamp, drummer Ronen Evron, and bassist Paul Michel – made a striking debut with 2013’s viral smash, “The Black Jack White,” quickly earning them more than a million plays on Spotify alone. Relentless touring followed, as did 2016’s debut EP, WORLD WAR IV, highlighted by another hit single, “Regular World,” which drew more than 3 million Spotify streams worldwide.  As a result, Spirit Animal has received major attention from a variety of high profile media outlets, including Consequence of SoundEntertainment Weekly, and The Washington Post.
