This Friday, the Epilogues will be returning home from tour with the Photo Atlas and both bands are celebrating with a dual CD release show at the Marquis. But if this impending event has you jumping up and down with anticipation, relax -- you don't have to wait to hear at least some of the new tunes. Just point your browser over to the Epilogues MySpace page and you can hear "Hunting Season" and "FutureBox" right now. Old fans needn't worry -- there's no radical departure for the band here, just a natural progression of their polished take on the modern pop/rock sound. Both tracks seem a little more confident and perhaps a bit more streamlined than the group's previous work. "FutureBox" is the better of the two, with its propulsive drive and nice guitar interplay. Neither track is going to change haters' minds, but that's okay, too -- the Epilogues clearly know what they're after and they continue to get better at getting it done.
