Reptar Signs to Joyful Noise, Releases 7-Inch, Album Coming Soon

Big news today from the Reptar camp: The local electro-pop group announced it has signed with Joyful Noise Recordings—the label has also been home to fellow Athens acts of Montreal and Kishi Bashi—and that its long-awaited full-length follow-up to 2012’s Body Faucet is on the way, with details to be revealed soon.

In the meantime, the band is offering up a limited-edition 7-inch release featuring two songs not on the upcoming LP: “In Through the Eyelids” and “Delusional.”
