The Districts Sign To Fat Possum


Lancaster County, PA foursome The Districts have just signed with Mississippi based label Fat Possum. The young band has perfected their own brand of authentic, soulful rock music as demonstrated to a packed out room at NYC's Mercury Lounge last night. They band came to nationwide attention when a one-take performance of their track "Funeral Beds" was filmed at a local Philadelphia studio and skyrocketed to the front page of Reddit, with WNYC noting that the song "showcased an impressive knack (for) memorable vocals and for song craft that starts
as introspective indie rock and builds to a climatic wall of noise."

The Districts will be touring with White Denim starting in February.
