Just like we can never sit still while listening to Parts & Labor,the band is eternally moving and shaking. Since the 2007 release of their last full-length, the critically acclaimed “Mapmaker”, Parts & Labor have toured Europe twice, and across the U.S. three times. They have diligently worked on their own label, the ever growing Cardboard Records (recently featured in Impose Magazine, and recommended by Pitchfork). And they just released the “Escapers Two” EP, which perfectly captures the whirlwind that is Parts & Labor with 51 songs in under 30 minutes. So what’s next? Parts & Labor is recording the proper full-length follow up to “Mapmaker” and are asking you, the listening public, to contribute to the album! From the band:

The deadline for submissions is May 23rd.
