News: Free Single from The Republic Tigers

SSM faves The Republic Tigers have a free single from their upcoming EP No Man's Land. The EP will be available on Record Store Day in April, but you can head over to iTunes now to download "Merrymake It With Me." Part of the iTunes SXSW sampler, the track is a fresh batch of sonic goodness with the band's unmistakable blend of guitar, electronics, lyrics and pop. (Listen for the Zaireeka-esque intro.) If you happen to be heading to SXSW, the Tigers hit the Liberty Bar stage at 2:15 p.m. Friday, March 18. But they'll also be a part of the showcase hosted by their label, Chop Shop Records, later that night. They take to the stage at Maggie Mae's Rooftop at midnight (following a performance by Twin Shadow, no less).
