The Head and the Heart to tour w/ Iron & Wine, and then The Decemberists +++ playing Fallon tonight!
The Head and the Heart @ Terminal 5 (more by Amanda Hatfield)
Seattle-based band The Head and the Heart have been pushing things into overdrive since the start of 2011!
First off, Sub Pop Records picked up the group to release their self-titled, debut LP.
We here at camp Head and the Heart are extremely excited, happy, elated, and possibly over-the-moon for the relationship that has been consummated with Sub Pop Records. They’ve released so many seminal albums that we all in the band cherish and to be a part of that history is amazing. We’re all still learning their nicknames, inside jokes and neurotic tendencies, but it feels good. It feels like home. We have no idea what this new year will bring (hopefully more Wine Fridays, am I right guys?), but with Sub Pop backing us, we’re ready to find out.
You can download the album tracks “Lost In My Mind”, and “Down In The Valley” via the widget below (for the price of your email address).
Dr. Dog took them along on their January-March Tour, and then from there they jumped on board with The Walkmen for a few dates.
After a few one-off dates (including the Sasquatch Festival), they’ll hit the road with with Iron & Wine until mid-June. In late July, the folk-group will join up with The Decemberists (most likely sans Jenny) for a short run.
Throughout both tours, The Head and the Heart will hit Chicago twice this summer.
First on June 6th, opening for Iron & Wine at Millennium Park (as part of Downtown Sound), and then again at the Aragon Ballroom on July 25th with The Decemberists.
They’ll be performing the track “Lost In My Mind” tonight, on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon on NBC at 12:35AM ET/11:35PM CST.
