The last time we heard from Josh Dooley and co was 2009 and Maps mostly instrumental record, Speechless. I thought we’d never see Map return again. In fact, Dooley having contracted West Nile Virus in 2014 could’ve really put an end to the band. Thankfully, Dolley is alright and Map is releasing new music. Hello Singularity (Writers Block Part 1) will be out on June 16th via Velvet Blue Music. Today, The Revue is premiering the first single from that album, Skills To Rebuild.
