Formed in 2001, Japanther is the music and art project of duo of Matt Reilly and Ian Vanek. And in the decade of recording and performing, the band has developed a reputation for unusual live shows – they had one show in which they appeared alongside synchronized swimmers on the Williamsburg Bridge; another show featured BMX bikers doing tricks; and so on. They’re releasing their latest effort, Eat Like Lisa, Act Like Bart on May 21st through Recess Records

“Stolen Flowers” is the first single from the new album, and it’s a breezy bit of punk that’s mildly reminiscent of the Ramones, in the sense that it’s melodic, accessible and pretty infectious.
