MP3: Aficionado Fakes Their ‘Inspiration’ On New Track (FILTER Exclusive)

Nestled neatly in between the punk, hardcore, thrash, Troy-core, and pop-punk genres that make up the Albany, NY music scene, you will find Aficionado. Part indie, part rock, and a little bit of experimentation, Aficionado are set to release their new full-length on the world and we have a new track to premiere for you. 

After listening to and downloading "Falsified Inspiration," you will most likely figure out why No Sleep Records has taken interest. Their style is a mix of big guitars, male/female harmonies, anthematic choruses and a rock hook that you just can't shake off. It's a refreshing sound, boasts upbeat energy, and should get you excited for the forthcoming full-length.

Their new self-titled album was produced and recorded by AJ Mogis (Bright Eyes, M. Ward, Cursive) and will arrive July 26th via No Sleep Records.

You can pre-order a copy right here

Be sure to catch Aficionado on the road this August-September with Tim Kasher.
