Guante & Big Cats!: WINTER IS COMING (free download and album annoucement)

Winter Is Coming (prod. Big Cats!) by Guante

As a duo, we haven't released any new material since last year's "Don't Be Nice" mixtape, although Big Cats! has been making tons of noise with The Tribe & Big Cats!, and I've been doing a bunch of solo stuff.  This song is a free download, and it's also the official announcement for our next album:

"YOU BETTER WEAPONIZE" will be out in 2012.  This song isn't on the album.  But the songs that are on the album are some of our best work ever.  More details to come.  Follow us on FB.

Plus a quick review:  Back in 2010, we released "An Unwelcome Guest," a concept album that fused radical politics with a love story with a zombie story.  It featured guest spots from Haley Bonar, Joe Horton of No Bird Sing, Prolyphic, Big Quarters and Chastity Brown.  Tru Ruts put it out and Strange Famous (Sage Francis' label) helped us out with presale packages.  If you still haven't heard it, give it a listen.  Two years out, I can see a few things that I would have done differently, but it's still an ambitious, musically-cohesive, lyrically-challenging project and we're both proud of it.  Listen to the whole album (and buy it if you like it) at this link.

Finally, here's a link to us performing live on 89.3 The Current's Local Show:

As always, any sharing (Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, Blogs, word-of-mouth) is definitely appreciated.
