Friendship – “Ugly Little Victory”

Friendship – “Ugly Little Victory”

Friendship, the Philadelphia band led by Dan Wriggins, have a couple albums under their belts already, including 2017’s Shock Out Of Season and 2019’s Dreamin’, both of which were released via Owen Ashworth’s Orindal Records. Today, the group has announced that they’ve signed with Merge for their next one, which will be out later this year. “If there’s a label that does it better than Merge, we haven’t heard of them, and we’ve heard of a lot of music stuff,” Wriggins said in a statement. We are psyched from beyond. In the words of Hank Williams, “Move over, cold dog, ’cause a hot dog’s movin’ in!'” To celebrate the announcement, the band is sharing a new song, “Ugly Little Victory,” which they’ve been playing live for a bit now.
