Taxes releasing ‘It Never Ends’, play shows at Slim’s and Bottom of the Hill (UPDATE: stream the whole album via Bandcamp)

It's pretty clear from the opening lines of Taxes’ press bio that frontman Robby Cronholm isn't interested in letting anything distract from the music – especially not something like, well, a bio.

Premiere: Cash For Gold releases video for “Out All The Time”
