(LOS ANGELES, CA) – April 12, 2019 - Snowball ii released their dynamic new EP Eaton Super 10 this morning on most streaming sources including Bandcamp, Spotify and Apple Music. The notable LA indie/shoegaze group will be hosting an EP release show and gallery on May 4th at Resident in downtown Los Angeles, featuring support from comedian Neil Hamburger, music by Jason Lerman, Mambo Jumbo Jazz Combo and an art installation by Katbing.
Released via Doughnut Records, Eaton Super 10 (ESX) marks the fourth installment in the ongoing adventures of Snowball ii and was written, produced and mixed by group vocalist, songwriter and guitarist Jackson Wargo. The band also announced a special vinyl release of ESX that will be posted online for pre-order later in April. Since the band’s inception, Wargo has continued to craft a unique brand of shoegaze laced with indie rock and power pop that has impressed media outlets including New Noise, Grimy Goods, Buzzbands.la and It’s Psychedelic Baby.
Snowball ii recently unveiled their first single off of Eaton Super 10, “Lost In Juarez,” which will see a music video released this Spring. To accompany the release of ESX, Snowball ii produced a comic infomercial called “Music You Can Hear!”, which features members of Spacemen 3, Lilys, Maroon 5, Surfer Blood, Collapsing Scenery, The War on Drugs, Atreyu, comedian Gregg Turkington (Decker, On Cinema, Neil Hamburger), among others, and their reactions to Eaton Super 10. The clip is available online and premiered last week via The Big Takeover.

Eaton Super 10 was mastered by TW Walsh (Pedro the Lion, The Shins, Sufjan Stevens).
