Kyle Craft’s ‘Full Circle Nightmare’ Is Out Today! North American Tour Begins March 5th

Kylecraft fullcirclenightmare cover 900x900 300

“When Kyle Craft’s heart breaks, it shoots glitter and confetti—by the time he hits the chorus, the song has erupted into a tempest of sassy brass, swirling organs, and hip-swiveling boogie.”  [“Heartbreak Junky”] - Pitchfork

Kyle Craft’s Full Circle Nightmare is out today! Have a listen here, then buy it here. The album, featuring highlights “Heartbreak Junky,” “The Rager,” and “Exile Rag,” was produced by Chris Funk (of the Decemberists), with mixing by Trevor Spencer (Father John Misty) and Benjamin Weikel and Brandon Summers (of The Helio Sequence). Full Circle Nightmare is the follow up to Dolls of Highland, his acclaimed debut.

Full Circle Nightmare is earning Craft some of the best reviews of his career. “Unabashed odes to courtship, confusion and the timeless power of storytelling in song,” says NPR Music. And Pop Matters raves, “It blows away a debut album that was already damn near flawless.”

Hear Kyle Craft’s ‘Full Circle Nightmare’ In Its Entirety Through NPR Music’s “First Listen” + New Tour Dates Incl. SXSW

Img 6330

2018 tour dates include headline shows (March 5th-4th), SXSW (March 12th-16th), and direct support for Dr. Dog (April 6th-20th)


“Unabashed odes to courtship, confusion and the timeless power of storytelling in song.” - NPR Music

Kyle Craft’s excellent new album Full Circle Nightmare is now streaming, in its entirety, worldwide through NPR Music’s “First Listen.” [Listen here.] That’s one full week before release next Friday, February 2nd!
 
“Craft may be a wordsmith at heart, but he doesn’t shirk on making Full Circle punchy and infectious on a strictly musical level. The folky sway and hushed tone of “Slick & Delta Queen” demand undivided attention, thanks to Craft’s cracked voice, gentle strumming, and euphoric choruses. “Fake Magic Angel” revs up a twangy hootenanny of Dylan-worthy Americana, only delivered with the slashing force of Bowie-era glam. And the piano-laden “Gold Calf Moan” is a ballad of lost — but hopefully one day recaptured — love that dissolves and reshapes itself around Craft’s entrancing troubadour spell…[His] moonstruck sentiments may seem downright old-fashioned. Then again, so are his compositions: unabashed odes to courtship, confusion and the timeless power of storytelling in song,” writes Jason Heller for NPR Music (see “First Listen” January 25th).

Hear Kyle Craft’s “Exile Rag,” The Honky-tonk Rocker (And New Single) From ‘Full Circle Nightmare’, His Forthcoming Album

Headlining Tour Dates For 2018 Also Announced

Honky-tonk rocker “Exile Rag” is the new single from Kyle Craft’s Full Circle Nightmare, his forthcoming second album which will be available in stores February 2nd, 2018.

While working on a weed farm in Northern California, Craft coined the term “Exile Rag” for the tunes he’d pick out on the guitar while everyone slept. Back in Portland, he developed feelings for a woman, that in the end weren’t reciprocated.  He’d sit alone in the farm’s workroom, dreaming of his life back in the city and asking himself, “What if?”
 
When he belts out the line “By the time that her door’s closing, and you feel like you’re imposing on that brand new boyfriend she has, she’ll be rolling in new love and you’ll be singing on the Exile Rag,” the song’s feeling of unrequited love is captured perfectly.
 
The Line of Best Fit had this to say: “A charming bluegrass number full to the brim with twangs, slides and that famous Southern charm. It is much like it’s creator; cheery, self-assured, a bit bizarre, slightly comedic, and utterly genius (see premiere January 9th).”

Kyle Craft Shares “The Rager” Official Video From Upcoming Album ‘Full Circle Nightmare’ (out February 2nd)

Hear solo performances of “The Rager,” “Heartbreak Junky,” and a cover of Leonard Cohen’s “Chelsea Hotel No. 2” from Dinner Party Download’s final episode 

You can now watch Kyle Craft’s official video for “The Rager” from Full Circle Nightmare, his forthcoming second album [Pre-order is on now here + in stores February 2nd].

“The Rager” was directed by returning collaborators, the One Hundred/Swanson Studio team (who helmed the “Heartbreak Junky” lyric video).

Craft says of “The Rager” video, “My friend Alyssa portrays a tragic heroine who is delivering what will be her last performance. As she takes the stage, the audience is totally indifferent to her presence. In the song, she’s human; however, in the video, she represents something more. A beautiful idea, rock ‘n’ roll, our country, something dying… whatever it is you want that idea to be, that’s the character she plays here.”

Kyle Craft also recently delivered incredible solo performances of Full Circle Nightmare tracks “The Rager” and “Heartbreak Junky,” along with a cover of Leonard Cohen’s “Chelsea Hotel No. 2,” for the Dinner Party Download’s “The Last Supper” (+final) episode. The show was recorded live in Seattle at the Moore Theatre [hear here].

Last month, Kyle Craft shared “Heartbreak Junky,” the cinematic lyric video from Full Circle Nightmare [see here]. Pitchfork said of the track, “When Kyle Craft’s heart breaks, it shoots glitter and confetti—by the time he hits the chorus, the song has erupted into a tempest of sassy brass, swirling organs, and hip-swiveling boogie.” The “Heartbreak Junky” visual brings the already vivid album cover to life. Full Circle Nightmare features front and inside gatefold images, shot by Peter Karavias.  


Full Circle Nightmare is now available for preorder from Sub Pop and select independent retailers [see here], and will be available in the following formats:
  • LP gatefold jacket with custom dust sleeve
  • CD digipack with poster insert
  • Cassette
  • Digital
North American preorders of the limited Loser edition will be available on maroon vinyl with a black swirl (while supplies last), and we also have a new T-shirt design with this release.

Full Circle Nightmare was produced by Chris Funk (of the Decemberists), with mixing by Trevor Spencer and the Helio Sequence’s Benjamin Weikel and Brandon Summers. Full Circle Nightmare is the follow up to Dolls of Highland, his acclaimed debut.

Watch the Cinematic New Lyric Video for “Heartbreak Junky” off Kyle Craft’s Second Album ‘Full Circle Nightmare’, In Stores February 2018

Dinner Party Download performance at The Moore Theatre in Seattle on Thursday, November 16th

Kyle Craft’s Full Circle Nightmare [preorder here], his highly anticipated second album, will be released worldwide on February 2nd, 2018 from Sub Pop. The 10-track album was produced by Chris Funk (of the Decemberists), with mixing by Trevor Spencer and the Helio Sequence’s Benjamin Weikel and Brandon Summers. Full Circle Nightmare is the follow up to Dolls of Highland, his acclaimed debut.
 
Album highlight “Heartbreak Junky” is the first offering (and cinematic lyric video) from Full Circle Nightmare. Directed by the One Hundred/Swanson Studio team, the visual brings an already vivid album cover to life. 

The Full Circle Nightmare front and inside gatefold images were shot by brothers Peter and Laki Karavias. The cover art concept was born from an idea Craft had that incorporated imagery from the lyricism found throughout the album. “Once everyone all piled into the room, it took a different turn,’ Craft says. “Some of the lyrical elements stuck around on the cover and on the inside fold, but for the most part it just turned into a small party and my pals Peter and Laki caught some perfect moments.”




The Louisiana-bred, Portland, Oregon-based Craft has earned notices for his observational storytelling talents, his incredible stage performances, and his uniquely compelling voice. Since the release of Dolls of Highland, he and his band have toured the US multiple times, both as headliners and supporting the likes of Fruit Bats and Drive-By Truckers, and Kyle has made repeat guest appearances at Newport Folk Fest.
 
Between the extensive touring and working on Full Circle Nightmare, he’s delivered both new material  (the politically-charged “Before the Wall”)  and beautifully earnest covers (the recently-released Girl Crazy covers series; Leonard Cohen’s “Chelsea Hotel No. 2”).
 
Full Circle Nightmare is a straight-up, rollicking rock’n’roll album; it traverses all the different nuances of the genre; it’s a timeless piece that could exist in any of the past five decades. All the songs were written over a year, and eventually, Craft took them into a studio run by Chris Funk. It was the first time he worked with a proper set-up. He was used to making all his music in his room with the aid of a laptop. “I always wanted to go to a legitimate studio and do what my all my old heroes did,” Craft says. “We did it live with the band.” The joy of the experience is palpable. It evokes a never-ending night out in a sweaty saloon bar: bottomless rounds, endless packs of cigarettes and hours dancing to the jukebox (read full bio at Sub Pop).
 

Full Circle Nightmare is now available for preorder from Sub Pop and select independent retailers [see here], and will be available in the following formats:
  • LP gatefold jacket with custom dust sleeve
  • CD digipack with poster insert
  • Cassette
  • Digital
North American preorders of the limited Loser edition will be available on maroon vinyl with a black swirl (while supplies last), and we also have a new T-shirt design with this release.

What “The People” have said about Kyle Craft:
“Sounds like: A swamp bar jukebox loaded with British glitter and Seventies Southern rock; a crawfish boil aboard ELO’s spacecraft…it’s Craft’s vocal intensity that outlasts all else” - Rolling Stone
 
“His voice carries southern cadences, and his songs revolve around distinct characters and situations that could only be from that town by the Mississippi. But you also hear the influences of David Bowie, under whose spell Craft fell at a young age, and of Craft’s adopted hometown of Portland, Oregon.”  - World Cafe
 
“…Craft’s music is so full of its own weird singularity that he’s onto something far beyond idol worship. “- Billboard
 
“His songs illustrate how the intense religiosity and voodoo-infused mythology of the South make it fertile turf for the sort of colorful characterization and freak-scenery on which glam rock was founded.” - Pitchfork
 
Craft displays the full prowess of his vocal range, hitting high notes that hark back to glam rock vocals of the ’70s” - American Songwriter
 
“…a head-turning mix, a sort of pop-art take on Southern gothic, and highly infectious.” - Uncut
 
“One of the most distinctive new voices in rock.” - SPIN
