After five years of non-stop work, the boys of Tapes ‘n Tapes decided it was time for some fun. They re-launched their label, idid records, headed back to their hometown of Minneapolis, Minnesota and spent two weeks recording the album they have always wanted to make. The result was Outside, and album filled with 12 tracks exemplifying the fun Tapes ‘n Tapes was searching for.

Outside will be released on January 11, 2011, with the band heading out on tour soon after. Tickets go on sale October 29. To keep fans satiated in the meantime, Tapes ‘n Tapes has released a new track, “Freak Out”.
