The Garden to release “Haha” on October 9th 2015

The Garden Haha cover
West Coast neo-punk twins, moonlighting models and provocateurs The Garden are set to release their new album “Haha” via Epitaph/Burger Records on October 9th, 2015. This is the duo's follow up to their debut LP "The Life and Times of a Paperclip" and their first album proper. Pre-orders for “Haha” are available at: CD/LP & iTunes.
 
The duo represent a youthful punk scene in California with their DIY principles, thrift store-cum-glam fashion style and a list of pick ’n’ mix influences that stretch far beyond The Minutemen. Their minimalist two-piece bass and drums essence is dirty, raw and immediate, with a visceral live element that saw them sell-out their first 2 headline runs in the UK - as well as supporting Warpaint across Europe. They strip off everything unnecessary about modern punk and get straight to the heart of it, consistently defying categorization and breaking new ground with their ‘Vada Vada’* philosophy.
 
Fact is, The Garden – aka Wyatt and Fletcher Shears - don’t care what you think. They are the auditory invaders of the new world; borderless, informed and decentralized - Haha offers a glimpse into their breakbeat-propelled world of electro-punk anarchy.
 
* Vada-Vada: “an idea that represents pure creative expression that disregards all previously made genres and ideals” - Wyatt Shears
