“Louder,” the lead single from Slingshot Dakota’s forthcoming album Heavy Banding, expresses an undeterred perseverance in the face of doubt.

Reinforced by Kiley Lotz (Petal) as well as the members of Dikembe and Expert Timing, the chorus serves as unflinching mantra: “We’ll just keep getting louder.” The record is scheduled for release on May 24 via Community Records/Specialist Subject Records/Stiff Slack, and the duo will begin its tour on Thursday, May 30 at Everybody Hits, supported by Harmony Woods and Hit Like a Girl.

Slingshot Dakota Release Show at Everybody Hits April 2

Slingshot Dakota shoots into Everybody Hits, headlining a record release show for their latest album Break, which was released last month via Topshelf Records. The husband and wife duo of Tom Patterson and Carly Comando explore emotive, earnest territory, adapting to life’s curve balls one pitch at a time. They don’t shy away from challenges, embracing the rough edges with a charming, thick-skinned sincerity. However, toughness is only a segment of their sound - one which also exudes a positive outlook despite the momentary obstacles that lie in the day to day, finding triumphant joy. Mercury Girls deliver loose energetic pop that lyrically digs into pain, contrasting with its harmony-rich polish. Petal, a.k.a. Kiley Lotz, showcases beautiful determination through rousing, unshielded vulnerability. With their new LP Guided Meditation due out at month’s end via Lame-O Records, the infectious, expressive, hook-laden pop-rock of Hurry completes this lineup. Everybody Hits, 529 W. Girard Ave., 8:30pm, $10, All Ages - Michael Colavita
