Update: Single File previews new song and recordings

Update (1/23/09): We've just learned that Common Struggles, Single File's full-length debut, is slated for release on Tuesday, April 7. "Girlfriend," the first single from the album, which was produced by Howard Benson (My Chemical Romance, All-American Rejects) and mixed by Tom Lord-Alge (Stones, Weezer), is being serviced to Denver radio a month earlier than the rest of the country. As previously reported, the band will be hitting the road with Alkaline Trio and Anberlin as part of the innagural Pick Up The Phone Tour. The tour, an alliance between 1-800-SUICIDE, PostSecret and To Write Love On Her Arms, is focused on suicide prevention. And when that tour wraps, Sloan Anderson and company will embark on their fifth stint on the Warped Tour. The original post and track listing for Common Struggles is posted after the jump.

Original post (11/17/08): Single File is reportedly finishing work on a brand new album titled Common Struggles. Although there's been no word when the act will issue its first full-length album, the first release from the band since 2007's No More Sadface EP, the outfit, which just wrapped a series of dates with A Cursive Memory and A Rocket to the Moon, has posted a brand new song from the new record on its MySpace page. Upon first listen, the tune, "Mannequin Loveseat," doesn't boast the mammoth pop hooks of "Zombies Ate My Neighbors" or "Velcro," but it definitely makes for a fitting companion to those tracks, the former of which, along with "Melody of You," has been re-recorded for inclusion on Struggles.
