Direct Effect join Tiny Engines, plan album + tour

Orlando, FL's Direct Effect have joined the Tiny Engines roster. The label will release the band's debut full-length Sunburn this summer; Tiny Engines described DE as "loud to say the least, existing somewhere between 80's hardcore and 90's Nirvana worship."

The opening track from Sunburn, "Permanent Vacation," is streaming at Direct Effect's Fest 12 band page. They've also lined up a tour with Ex-Breathers, the dates for which can be seen below.
