Reptar announced 9 live performances to take place in Austin, Texas during the annual SXSW Festival (complete schedule below). The band will release
Body Faucet, their debut album produced by Ben Allen (Animal Collective, Gnarls Barkley, Washed Out), on May 1st on Vagrant Records.

Previously available on , fans can now purchase the first single from the album entitled "Sebastian" at all digital retailers and on iTunes: The group also revealed a second album trailer for Body Faucet, featuring a snippet of the forthcoming album track "Please Don't Kill Me".

Building on the infectious dance-driven melodies established by the band on Oblangle Fizz Y'all,  Body Faucet finds the band delving deeper into world-music influences to compliment their unique blend of danceable and electro infused pop. As put by Spin Magazine, "Their playful electro-pop channels MGMT's debut-album psychedelic-yet-ready-for-the-masses sheen, and their rambunctious antics recall the Black Lip's punk bravado."

Hailing from Athens, GA, Reptar began playing music in late 2008. Since then, the boisterous quartet has gained a reputation for their riotous, must-see live show. Paste Magazine declared,
"These Southern-fried electronic Afro-poppers are known for the sticky dance riots of their live shows." Reptar likes to first and foremost make people dance, and have been likened to The Talking Heads, Animal Collective, Prince, and The Jackson 5.

In addition to the spectacle of their live show, Reptar are also known for their intimate house party performances. In true DIY spirit, the band has played countless shows in cramped living rooms and backyards around the country. Stay tuned for details on an intimate house party at SXSW.

Reptar is Graham Ulicny (Vocals, Guitar), Andrew McFarland (Drums), Ryan Engelberger (Bass), and William Kennedy (Synth, Keys).
