The Low Anthem announce first leg of world tour dates‏

The Low Anthem has announced the first leg of tour dates that will take the band around the world in support of their long-awaited new album, EYELAND, to be released June 17th (Washington Square Music). EYELAND marks the Low Anthem’s fourth full-length recording and first new music since 2011’s SMART FLESH.

The tour begins at the band’s very own Columbus Theatre in Providence, RI. It then moves on to Daryl’s House in Pawling, NY and continues on to Glasgow’s Scotland Broadcast in Scotland on July 13th. More dates will be announced soon. The full confirmed itinerary is below.

An unprecedented collection of multi-dimensional future folk crafted with true vision and emotional depth, EYELAND follows an extraordinary five-year journey for The Low Anthem. What began as a “vague and rather abstract” short story by co-founder/singer/guitarist Ben Knox Miller became real life as Low Anthem immersed themselves in the creation of their own Eyeland Studios, developing Providence’s once obsolete Columbus Theatre into an innovative recording space and live concert venue. EYELAND proves a prism of the album’s inner themes, refracting Miller and co-founding drummer/multi-instrumentalist Jeff Prystowsky’s sonic escapades into a full-blown Möbius strip of music and meaning. Low Anthem’s lofty aspirations and creative capriciousness resonate throughout songs like “Her Little Cosmos,” “The Pepsi Moon” and “Behind The Airport Mirror,” their elegiac arrangements and lyrical frankness marked by shimmering ambience and a hauntingly defiant tension. Psychedelic in the truest sense of that overused word, EYELAND is a perspective-shifting musical experience at once elliptical and intangible yet still precise and powerfully personal.

The Low Anthem toured the world in support of 2011’s SMART FLESH before returning to Providence to begin searching for a unique new studio space. Their quixotic quest ultimately led to The Columbus, a local theatre built in 1926 as a vaudeville house and shuttered since 2009, “OPENING SOON” promised on the marquee. A large vacant room designed for maximum acoustics, The Columbus offered everything The Low Anthem was looking for – an ideal studio space to begin recording their next album as well as a concert hall unlike any other in the Providence area. Dubbing their new studio as the true life “Eyeland,” the duo immediately set about exploring its sonic capabilities, “experimenting with every bizarre phenomenon of sound we could find,” says Miller. “We just ran around the building with 300 feet of snake, trying to see what we could record.”
