The tracks are off the band’s newest record, the double LP Yellow, which will be released August 4 on Captured Tracks. Earlier this month the band’s Travis Coster got on the phone with his friend Andrew Savage (Parquet Courts) and discussed the state of music in 2017, the evolution of each band’s sounds, and of course the making of Yellow. You can read their joint interview here via Talkhouse.
The band have also announced their fall North American tour, which begins August 5th in their hometown of Olympia, WA at The Capitol Theater. They will makes stops in Seattle, Chicago, DC, and Philly before ending October 9th in Brooklyn at Brooklyn Bazaar. A full tour rundown can be found below. More dates to be announced.
Naomi Punk is singer/guitarist Travis Coster, guitarist Neil Gregerson, and drummer Nic Luempert. Yellow contains 25 tracks clocking in at almost 75 minutes. The album was recorded by the band beginning in 2015 at various locales throughout Olympia.
Naomi Punk got their start in 2012 with the release of their debut The Feeling. Like many bands it’s evident who they look towards as influences (Wipers, Dead Moon) yet like so few, they are able to create a sound that is singular to Naomi Punk. They seamlessly transfer what they create in the studio to the stage putting on intense, dynamic shows that tend to require the use of earplugs — they mean to be loud, and they are.
Pre-order Yellow here.
