The Constellations 'Do It For Free'

Atlanta rock/soul group The Constellations, who recently signed a deal with 429 Records, are out with the title track to their ‘Do It For Free’ album. The band’s debut LP is out June 12th. Audio at Soundcloud has since been removed.

“We are very happy to have found a new home at 429 Records,” vocalist Elijah Jones said about their label home. “It’s been a long time since we’ve released new music and a lot has changed since our first release. We’ve grown as a band and we are changing what The Constellations sound can and will be defined as. I think this EP will be a taste of what’s to come and we are super excited to have an opportunity to get some new music to our fans.”
