San Francisco's THE QUAILS will release their third full-length album and their first for Mr. Lady. Like all their previous releases, the album was recorded with Tim Green (THE FUCKING CHAMPS, NATION OF ULYSSES) at the controls. Their musical resumes boast membership in the ELECTROLETTES, the CHA CHA CABARET, and CIRCUS LUPUS. THE QUAILS songs recall a bass line from the GANG OF FOUR or BOW WOW WOW then an altered PERE UBU lyric sneaks passed in a Syd Vicious scream. The songs are wizened protest songs and celebratory anthems of the communities they were written for - punks, artists, queers, activists. THE QUAILS have an enthusiastic Bay Area following and growing national interest based on a rigorous year of touring with SLEATER-KINNEY and AISLERS SET. Their previously self released records received positive press and they will do a national tour to promote the release of The Song is Love.
