Natalie Portman’s Shaved Head is no more. Stating that the band’s “love affair with Natalie’s name was like a summer fling that lasted… and lasted… and lasted…,” the Seattle quintet has announced its intention to now be called Brite Futures. In celebration of the group’s creative rebirth and new moniker, they are giving away a free download of “Dog Eared Summer.”

The full NPSH = BF press statement:
“We chose our band name on a whim when we were still in high school, and ‘Natalie Portman’s Shaved Head’ has seen us through an unexpectedly amazing four years. Our love affair with Natalie’s name was like a summer fling that lasted… and lasted… and lasted… But now it is summer once again, and time for a change. Also it has recently come to our attention that our muse Ms. Portman is not so keen on us using her name in ours… Ultimately we are lovers, not fighters, and our mamas didn’t raise no fools, so we feel it is time to move forward with a new name. We are BRITE FUTURES. Ps no hard feelings Natalie. You remain +1 on every guest list.” –Brite Futures
