Widowspeak Tour With Pure Bathing Culture

Widowspeak Tour With Pure Bathing Culture and Iron And Wine. "The Swamps" EP from 'Widowspeak' is out October 29 on Captured Tracks.

Last night Widowspeak kicked off their two month North American tour with a show in Minneapolis. The duo will play a string of dates with Iron & Wine through the end of September and will then team up with Pure Bathing Culture for the remainder their dates. Included in this tour are performances on both weekends of ACL.

Widowspeak are also looking forward to the release of their 6-track EP, The Swamps, due out October 29th.

Take a listen to the first single “True Believer” above.

The Swamps arrives as a bridge between the duo’s sophomore album, Almanac, and an as yet untitled third studio record. Here the band’s characteristic sonic landscapes, haunting harmonies, and layers of delicate guitar-work usher in a new chapter in their dark and dreamy catalog.  Inspired by the light-choked wetlands of its title, The Swamps brims with songs about fears of stagnation and the pitfalls of nostalgia, but never relinquishes Widowspeak’s melodic optimism.
