Wintersleep lines up summer dates

home w/ a sick baby, so lots of catching up today, means lots of full texters, back to my usual witty (???) comments later -


With the release of their brand new album, NEW INHERITORS, Wintersleep are very excited to hit the road and introduce fans to their new collection of songs. Praised as their "best release and playing to all of the band's considerable strengths" No Depression raves "strong songs, great playing, daring arrangements, and impassioned singing throughout make this an indispensible album." Beginning this Friday, June 4th in Philadelphia, PA, the Halifax rockers will join Matt Pond PA for a 4-week North American tour. In addition, the band will perform with The Hold Steady in Philadelphia on October 5th and at The Beacon Theatre in NYC on October 7th. NEW INHERITORS is now available at your local retailer and on iTunes.

The follow up to the critically acclaimed album, WELCOME TO THE NIGHT SKY, which saw the band win a Juno Award for "Best New Band," NEW INHERITORS is an intoxicatingly beautiful album full of meticulously-crafted rock songs that may be some of the most expansive and dynamic rock music you'll hear this year. Canada's Globe and Mail raves "Grand, dramatic tension comes from the Halifax rockers who pair Verve-like strings and staccato guitar riffs with words about an all-consuming condition. This thing hits like a heart attack on heroin" while One Mind Track goes on to say, "it's easy to see why so many people fell in love with the band and why so many more will this time around." London Tour Dates declares "Wintersleep have delivered one of the most fearless rock albums of the year."
