So The Antlers were just here last week when they played in the Sanctuary of the First Unitarian Church and it looks like they’ll be back again in October. Next time they play Philly, the Brooklyn quartet will open for Explosions In The Sky at the Tower Theatre.

The two of them on the same bill is like a dream that will eventually come true. The show will take place on Sunday, October 2nd. Tickets went on sale today and can be found HERE.

Explosions In The Sky announce fall US tour(Tower Theatre in October)

leave a comment »

Explosions In The Sky announced their first extensive US tour in nearly two years this afternoon. The tour will be in support of their recent album Take Care, Take Care which was released last month to  positive reviews. The album marks the band’s sixth studio album and proves that they are the easily the most accessible and consistent group in their genre.

If you’ve never seen these guys live, you need to. They put one of the most captivating and absolutely mind-blowing live shows out there. The last time they were in Philly, the band played two nights–one at The Starlight Ballroom and the other at The Trocadero. Luckily for us Philadelphians, our wait for them to return is over. The Austin quartet will play the Tower Theatre on Sunday, October 2nd. Tickets for the show go on sale Friday(05/27) and will be found HERE.

The Rosebuds going on tour with Bon Iver(Tower Theatre) + releasing new album “Loud Planes Fly Low”

leave a comment »

One time married couple, The Rosebuds, who are now just friends/bandmates are set to release their fifth album Loud Planes Fly Low via Merge Records on June 7th. Their marriage ended after their last album, which left the future of the band in quite a limbo. However, they pulled together and made the record which strengthened their relationship as bandmates and most importantly, their friendship. The music allowed them to have the conversations about their relationship that they long avoided. In the end, the duo made a record that’s considered to be their most inventive album to date. Check out a song and a trailer for the album below.

A few months after the album’s release, the band will head out on the road for a string of dates opening for Bon Iver. One of which will be at the Tower Theatre on Wednesday, August 3rd. Tickets for the show go on sale this Friday, May 13th and will be found HERE.

leave a comment »

Fleet Foxes released a new video this afternoon for the song “Grown” which will be on their upcoming record, Helplessness Blues. The album drops May 3rd via Sub Pop Records. The video consists of grainy footage of the band traveling and recording. It kind of looks like it was done on film instead of digital. Who knows? Also, they play the Tower Theatre in May. More details about the show can be found HERE.
