Adult Swim Singles Program Returns For 2012


Adult Swim is teaming up with Kia Motors for the third year in a row to bring you a batch of new tracks in their Adult Swim Singles Program.

The program ran for the past two summers, showcasing new tracks by artists like El-P, Best Coast, Mastodon in 2011, and Madvillain, Washed Out, LCD Soundsystem, and Cults in 2010.

This year will have more singles than the last two– 2010 saw 9 tracks, 8 and one bonus, and 2011 saw 10 and a bonus 11th. 2012 will run for 12 weeks starting June 18th and culminating in a bonus track on September 10th. This year, we’ll see new music from Wavves, Flying Lotus, The Hives, Com Truise, and the bonus track will be one by noisy hip-hop outfit, Death Grips, who released The Money Store earlier this year and will release a second album, No Love, later on this year.
