Reptar Announce Fall Tour with Foster The People and Cults, Also Playing Lollapalooza + Escape To NY

Hailing from the greater Athens-Atlanta-Asheville area, Reptar has been playing music ever since recorded history, but playing shows as Reptar since December 2008. Since then, the fast rising fabulous four has created quite a sensation around the Southeast. It all started with their debut 7″ recorded with producer Ben Allen (Sean P. Diddy Combs, Gnarls Barkley, Animal Collective, and Matt & Kim) and released on Allen’s label Make Records Not Bombs: http://mrnb.bigcartel.com/. The 7″ features the debut tracks “Cannabis Canyon” and “Houseboat Babies”, check them out on thier my space :http://www.myspace.com/reptarathens. They will be releasing a 7″ inch in June on Black Bell Records (Passion Pit’s Adad Al Adhamy), and the Oblange Fizz Y’all EP this July.

Reptar likes to first and foremost make people dance, and have been likened to The Talking Heads, Animal Collective, Prince, Marky Mark, Lake, Air, and the Jackson 5. The band is made up of Andrew McFarland, a Brazilian native, classically trained snare drummer, and sophmore at UGA, Ryan Engleberger, who currently attends Dartmouth College in the Artic Circle majoring in Jaco Pastorius’ fretless bass, Graham Ulicny, a hernianted African Soukous guitarist and AstroBioElectroPhysics student at the University of North Carolina in Asheville, and William Kennedy, greatgodson to Herbie Hancock’s ARP 2600 and connosiour of fine chocolate (85% cocao or above) and sophmore at UGA. With Reptar’s powers combined, they can topple small buildings, smaltzy restaurants, and shmuppy next-door-neighbors with their devastating wall of synthesizers and samples.
