LOW ANNOUNCE 12 DATE NORTH AMERICAN TOUR WITH DEATH CAB FOR CUTIE

11073

Beginning April 10th, Sub Pop recording artists Low will serve as main support for the first 12 dates of Death Cab for Cutie’s upcoming North American spring tour. These dates will bring the bands to intimate venues and historic theaters across much of the United States, as Death Cab for Cutie performs with San Francisco’s innovative Magik*Magik Orchestra. Low was specially selected by Death Cab for Cutie as main support for these dates.

Low are touring in support of their 2011 release, C’mon, which was recorded in an old church in Duluth, MN and mixed in Hollywood, CA with producer Matt Beckley working alongside the band. C’mon received warm accolades from such places as: SPIN, Blurt, Entertainment Weekly, The Boston Globe, Washington Post, and NPR, who had this to say about their latest release:

Lush and beautiful in its simplicity… Longtime fans who’ve lived with Low will no doubt appreciate the return to form, while newcomers ought to fall in love with these songs and want to dig into the rest of the band’s 18 years of passionate restraint.

Alan Sparhawk describes C’mon simply as: “Warm, pretty, large like Nashville without the country. Mim and I are talking to each other in the lyrics, sometimes it’s not pretty, but it’s as honest as love.”

See below for a full list of tour dates. Click here for more information on Low.

New Music and Tour Dates from Memoryhouse

10133

On September 13, we, the people of Sub Pop Records, will release a fully re-recorded, remixed and remastered version of Memoryhouse’s The Years, adding two new tracks entitled “Modern, Normal” and “Quiet America.” While technically an expanded and improved reissue, this version of The Years will be the first time the EP has been made available on CD or LP. This is exciting. Also exciting: with the release of The Years the band will be touring the US as main support on a slew of dates with Peter Bjorn and John as well as The Radio Department (see below for a list of shows, with more dates to be announced soon.)

The band also has a new video for their song “Quiet America” which was directed by, and stars, Memoryhouse’s own Denise Nouvion, and was edited by Jamie Harley, who also happens to have directed Memoryhouse’s video for “Heirloom” as well as How to Dress Well’s “Decisions” video. We think this is all pretty swell. You can watch this filmic gem by checking out the band’s website.

For more information on Memoryhouse please check out www.memoryhou.se as well as their subpop.com artist page.

Fruit Bats and Vetiver Announce Co-Headlining Fall Tour

9796

We at Sub Pop love the bands we work with. This is almost certainly unsurprising. It is perhaps less obvious that sometimes these bands like, love, or maybe just agree to tour with one another. In September of this year Vetiver and the Fruit Bats are declaring to the world (or many parts of North America) what may very well be a profound affection for one another by touring together! Both bands have fantastic new records: Vetiver’s The Errant Charm was released on June 14th of this year and the Fruit Bats’ Tripper will be out on August 2nd.

Vetiver’s The Errant Charm is available for you to purchase, own and treasure always here.
And Tripper, the new Fruit Bats album can be pre-ordered here.

Should you find yourself in the almost inconceivable position of wondering whether the Fruit Bats’ Tripper is for you, please watch the following audio-visual advertising device and wonder no more. We’ve taken to calling these things “teasers” for some thoroughly unacceptable reason…

This is the TEASER for the Fruit Bats’ Tripper!
