Total Babes was formed in 2010 in Medina, Ohio, by Jayson Gerycz (of Cloud Nothings)and his friend Christopher Brown. Their sophomore album, Heydays, features lush synthesizers from Emeralds/Outer Space member and Spectrum Spools head John Elliott, bass from Nathan Ward of Smooth Brain and Cruelster and saxophone from Cloud Nothings' Dylan Baldi on Circling. Stereogum announced the album via a track premiere of Circling in February. Total Babes will tour nationally following the release of Heydays, including a performance at the highly regarded Pickathon Festival this summer. The album will be serviced to College/Non-Comm around street date.
