Hello Matador, hello double album, hello tours

Big news: We are signing to Matador Records.

They’re re-releasing Palo Santo in an expanded, partly re-recorded, fully remastered, breathtakingly repackaged, and just totally superior edition on April 10th. This was our idea, not theirs, and we’re proud to say that this is Palo Santo as we always hoped it would be. It also comes with a bonus disc of outtakes, intakes, demos, and covers. There’s a double-vinyl version,too, which has a special extra track.

And then there’s touring. We’re playing in Dallas, then twice at SXSW, and then embarking on a brief east-coast tour with the awesome Xiu Xiu and Casiotone for the Painfully Alone. The dates and times are here, and on the shows page.

More touring will follow on the heels of these dates, probably in June, including our long-promised return to the west coast. In addition to songs from Palo Santo, expect us to be playing new songs you haven’t heard before, as we’re already working on the next full-length.

See you soon!

More release info, full tracklisting, etc. is available from Pitchfork.
