Quilt share live video series, new tour dates


Ahead of their European tour dates this May, as well as a newly announced run of US dates this summer, Quilt are debuting a series of live videos and interviews recorded at the Boston Museum of Fine Arts (MFA). The set — which featured a string quartet — includes live takes on “Hissing My Plea”, “Padova” and “Your Island”, all three of which appeared on the band’s recently released third album, Plaza, available now on Mexican Summer. The string quartet will also join them for a special hometown show in NYC at Bowery Ballroom on Thu. June 23rd, one you won’t want to miss!

Speaking about the “Padova” video and its accompanying interview, the band’s Shane Butler says: “In February we had our first opportunity to perform live with strings and flute at The Museum Of Fine Arts in Boston. This video is a little clip with emphasis on the sounds of those instruments and some words about our relationship with visual art and performing at the Museum.”

As well as offering fresh insight and perspective from the band into the process behind Plaza, the series offers a glimpse at what audiences can expect during a Quilt live show. Full details of the band’s upcoming tour schedule can be found below.
