Father John Misty’s ‘I Love You, Honeybear’ Album Trailer

We couldn’t encourage you enough to read Father John Misty’s “Back Into the Gaping Maw of Promotional Correspondence,” an epic screed on behalf of the upcoming tour in support of I Love You, Honeybear, his highly anticipated second album. Details found within it include: his much-talked about performance of “Bored in the USA”on The Late Show with David Letterman, and a NSFW trailer featuring segments of …Honeybear tracks “When You’re Smiling And Astride Me” and “Holy Shit.”

On a related and perhaps unsurprising note, “Bored in the USA” earned a great deal of praise from the likes of Pitchfork (“Best New Track”) and NMEGrantland, Stereogum, Consequence of Sound, Flavorwire and more.

Father John Misty’s fast-selling headlining late winter/spring tour in support of I Love You, Honeybear spans January 16th-April 25th. Sold out-out shows include Brooklyn’s Rough Trade NYC on February 12th, New York’s Bowery Ballroom on February 14th, Dublin’s Whelans on February 21st, London’s Village Underground on February 26th and Minneapolis’s First Avenue on April 4th. For up-to-date information on tickets please visit fatherjohnmisty.com. You should definitely get tickets now, they will most certainly not be available forever.

I Love You, Honeybear will be available on February 10th from Sub Pop. The album, featuring “Bored In The USA,” “Chateau Lobby #4 (in C for Two Virgins),” “True Affection,” and the title track, was produced by Josh Tillman and Jonathan Wilson, mixed by Phil Ek, and mastered by Greg Calbi at Sterling Sound. It’s truly a remarkable record of which we couldn’t be more pleased to stamp our logo on.

Preorders for I Love You, Honeybear are now available from Father John Misty.net,  Sub Pop Mega Mart, iTunes and Amazon.

Sub Pop Signs Olympia, Washington’s Strange Wilds!

Strangewilds 2014 1 courtesyofstrangewilds print

Sub Pop is thrilled to share the news that Strange Wilds have signed on to be part of the family!

Strange Wilds formed in Olympia, WA in 2012. The band grew out of the fertile Pacific-Northwest punk scene, with members from Negative Press, Outlook, Wreck, and a bunch of other punk/hardcore bands of the last few years. Shortly after the 2014 release of their debut, the four-song Wet 7” on Inimical Records, the band settled into the classic, economical, power-trio configuration of bass, drums, and a single guitar, and signed to Sub Pop. Strange Wilds will release new music for Sub Pop in 2015. In the meantime, you can read more about Strange Wilds via Noisey and the AV Club.

Get to know Strange Wilds!

Watch: “Slime” video
Listen:  “Wet” 4-track 7” single

The Postal Service’s Everything Will Change Documentary Concert Film Dates!

On Friday, November 14th, there will be a series of special preview screenings of The Postal Service’s Everything Will Change, the feature-length documentary concert film of performances at the Greek Theater in Berkeley, CA, captured over two nights (July 26th & 27th, 2013) during their reunion tour.

Everything Will Change will screen at AMC Theatres in the following cities: Town Center 6 in Burbank, CA; Empire 25 in New York, NY; Metreon 16 in San Francisco, CA; Pacific Place in Seattle, WA; River East 21 in Chicago, IL; Boston Commons 19 in Boston, MA; Cherry Hill 24 in Cherry Hill, NJ; Georgetown 14 in Washington, DC; Mission Valley 20 in San Diego, CA; and Northpark 15 in Dallas, TX. Admission to these screenings is $10.

Sub Pop will co-present these screenings with the following partners: Origami Records (Burbank); Noise Pop (San Francisco); Sonic Boom Records, KEXP & KNDD (Seattle); Reckless Records (Chicago); M-Theory Records & 91X (San Diego); Good Records (Dallas). Please find a complete list of screenings below.

Everything Will Change will be available worldwide on Monday, November 24th on DVD/Blu-ray from Sub Pop. In addition, Give Up will be available for the first time as a single vinyl LP. Preorders for both the Everything Will Change DVD/Blu-ray and the Give Up single-LP are available at the Sub Pop Mega Mart and Amazon.com.

A collaboration between Benjamin Gibbard (of Death Cab for Cutie) and Jimmy Tamborello (from Dntel), with Rilo Kiley’s Jenny Lewis, The Postal Service released Give Up, their one and only album, in 2003. That record went on to sell over a million copies and most of the band’s fans never had the chance to see them perform live. In celebration of the 10-year anniversary of Give Up, Sub Pop released an expanded, deluxe version of the album and the band reunited to tour the world. Directed by Justin Mitchell, Everything Will Change features intimate interviews, backstage footage of the band, and captures one of the nights when everything did change.
