New EP out now, tour!

The Sexy Accident Release new EP, Now That She's Gone, and Embark on First Tour

Kansas City, MO-based quintet The Sexy Accident announce the release of their new EP, Now That She's Gone (available here), a perfect-for-summer collection of three songs encapsulating the band's ability to make music with something for everyone--complex yet accessible, mature rock and roll with brains and heart.

The band continue to showcase the careful songwriting of frontman Jesse Kates, whose storytelling, at turns thoughtful and sarcastic, is often lauded for its honesty and real-life relatability. Kates' lyrics once again come packaged in a passionate power pop swagger that ranges this time around from Motown-inspired riffs and rhythms to melancholy, aggressive alternative rock to quirky, surf-tinged anthems.

Now That She's Gone was recorded live, with minimal overdubs, to 2-inch tape, allowing the band to achieve a clean, precise sound while holding on to their raw energy. The tracks were mixed by Steve Fisk (Nirvana, Soundgarden, The Wedding Present), who previously produced The Sexy Accident's well-received 2009 full length, Mantoloking. Line-up changes since Mantoloking (a new bassist and an added female vocalist/keyboardist) also afforded the band an opportunity to create more tightly layered arrangements and expand their range of performance abilities and sonic influences.

In support of the new EP, The Sexy Accident are embarking on their first tour. The “Unintended Acceleration Tour” will reach Midwest and East Coast cities June 9-19, 2010. Each night promises entertaining and sophisticated pop perfection as the band deliver songs that are ironic and sincere, smart and catchy, and that audiences can’t help but sing along to.
