New EP From The Blue Pages

>> The Blue Pages will release a new 5-song EP, titled “Anthropology,” on February 1st, 2011. The album will be available for digital download through Bandcamp.

>> Anthropology has more of a true rock sound than the band's previous album, which lead singer Zac Barnett attributes to the band’s relocation:
“The new EP was very much inspired by our recent move from Boston to Brooklyn. During our first week in the city, a close friend of mine invited me to see one of New York’s up-and-coming bands, Atomic Tom. It was refreshing to see a band portray pop rock music with an upbeat mentality, but still keep the emotion close to the songs. Anthropology really taps into our primary influences which include Bloc Party, Snow Patrol, Coldplay, Arcade Fire, U2 and so on. We love big, epic rock bands and we hope to have captured something similar to that while still maintaining The Blue Pages’ pop hooks and subtle electronic influence.”
>> The Blue Pages have partnered up with the nonprofit organization Education Through Music, which provides quality music instruction to disadvantaged schools throughout New York City. The mission of this organization is something all members of the band strongly advocate, and therefore The Blue Pages will be donating 50% of all album proceeds from Anthropology to Education Through Music.

>> Download the band's single "Run Back Home" for free on Bandcamp. If you like it, make sure to download Anthropology on February 1st.
