Sylvan Esso Announces Spring 2018 Tour, Watch “Die Young” from the Band’s Own Shakori Hills Festival This Fall

Today, Sylvan Esso are thrilled to announce their next run of U.S. dates, happening in March 2018. Starting March 17th in Atlanta Georgia, these dates see the acclaimed duo taking their electric live show to cities across the country, playing venues that keep getting bigger on every single run. The full listing of dates is below.

The band is also premiering a brilliant live video for their single “Die Young,” from their much-loved sophomore album, What Now, one of the most critically-celebrated albums of 2017. Shot this past fall at the band’s inaugural festival, Shakori Hills Festival, the performance is exemplary showcase for all the things Sylvan Esso fans love about them.

Sylvan Esso’s sophomore album, What Now, is the sound of a band truly fulfilling the potential and promise of their debut. Everything on the album evolved – the production is bolder, the vocals are more intense, the melodies are more irresistible, and the songs shine that much brighter. It’s an album that is both political and personal, and blurs the line between the two; What Now describes the inevitable low that comes after every high, fulfillment tempered by the knowledge that there is no clearly defined conclusion. At its core, What Now is an album of the finest songs this band has ever written- produced masterfully, sang fearlessly- to articulate our collective undercurrents of anxiety and joy.
