Pillars and Tongues releasing ‘End-dances,’ playing two upcoming Chicago shows (MP3 premiere, dates)

DOWNLOAD: Pillars and Tongues – “Points of Light” (MP3)


Chicago experimentalists Pillars and Tongues are slated to welcome their new album, End-dances, on September 17 via Empty Cellar Records. The trio have previously shared its lead single “Knifelike” and another album cut called “Points of Light” makes its premiere in this post. Frontman Mark Trecka‘s even baritone glides above a thick bass line, as he’s colorfully countered by co-vocalist Beth Remis. Grab a download of the track above and/or take a listen to it at the bottom of this post. Cover art and tracklisting for End-dances can also be found below.

Aside from a string of fall tour dates with fellow Chicagoan Angel Olsen, P&T also have a pair of upcoming Chicago gigs. The first is a free show at The Chicago Cultural Center on September 20 with Suns and Santah. Then, they’ll headline The Burlington on October 12. Additional details on that performance are forthcoming.
