Washed Out: Updated Tour Dates

Washed Out Announces More Tour Dates In Support ofParacosm
Collaborates With KEEP Footwear For Limited-Edition Shoe

(April 30th, 2014) Washed Out will resume his late spring & early summer tour schedule this May in support of his acclaimed second album, Paracosm. The next leg of touring begins with a performance on Saturday, May 24th in George, WA at Sasquatch and currently ends on Sunday, June 22nd in Dover, DE at the Firefly Festival.  Highlights include: Sunday, June 1st in Houston, TX for Free Press Summer Fest; Friday, June 6th in New York, NY for Governors Ball; Sunday, June 8th in Toronto, ON for Field Trip; Friday, June 13th in Manchester, TN for Bonnaroo; Thursday, June 19th in Dufur, OR at WTF?! What The Festival.  Please find a list of current dates below.

Washed Out won over audiences at the sold-out Coachella weekends earlier this month. The Nerdistsaid of the set, “He played “New Theory” and “Feel It All Around” with beautiful live-show arrangements we weren’t used to on his record. It reminded me of how The National does it. Their albums are quietly beautiful, but when you put them on a stage, they rock hard. Washed Out glorified their album to make the Gobi tent the place to be.” Meanwhile, Yahoo Music said of the sets, “Washed Out tapped into a magic formula, confidently balancing electronics with acoustic and electric guitars and analog drums. Ringleader Ernest Greene looked casual in a striped button-down shirt, and struck just the right balance between producer/mastermind and Southern gentleman (he's originally from Georgia). "This is our first time here at Coachella, and we're very excited to be here with y'all," he said. Playing several tracks from their 2013 sophomore album, Paracosm, they added some surprising screeching guitars, which gave the usually mellow tunes some serious teeth.”

In further exciting news,  Washed Out recently stopped by Last Call with Carson Day to perform theParacosm songs “All I Know” and “It All Feels Right,” along with Life of Leisure tracks “New Theory” and “Feel It All Around” (see Friday February 28th + Tuesday April 29th appearances).

Washed Out’s Ernest Greene has also teamed-up with vegan shoe company KEEP for a limited-edition shoe design. The shoes will hit shelves by mid-September, and purchasers will also score two previously unreleased Washed Out tracks as a bonus gift. Past KEEP artist collaborations include Animal Collective, Bon Iver, Dinosaur Jr, among others. You can now pre-order the shoes viawww.keepcompany.com now (through May 12th).

Paracosm is now available in North America on Sub Pop and in Europe via Weird World. The album, featuring the singles (and videos) for  “All I Know,” “It All Feels Right,” and “Don’t Give Up,” was recorded by Ernest Greene with returning producer Ben Allen in Athens and Atlanta, Georgia.

What People Are Saying About Washed Out:
“It’s a realm of leisurely melodies and keyboard chords that wash in and drift away, of calm vocal harmonies and burbling electronics, of lavishly blended acoustic and electronic instruments and echoes of reassuring pop from past eras...Paracosm sounds warmer, more enveloping; precisely because it’s so much more spacious, it’s cozier.” [Playlist] - New York Times
“A sun-dappled, intricately layered, indie pop beauty.” [#2 / “Must List”] - Entertainment Weekly
"Greene's meticulous creations are still slow-rolling and thickly layered, but this time he and returning Animal Collective producer Ben Allen slather on less futuristic sounds: Mellotron, bongos, children laughing. Harplike arpeggios herald the beginning of the title track like the launch of a Technicolor reverie, but the nine-song LP’s dreamiest tune is ”All I Know,” a nostalgic stunner that glows like a jar of fireflies." [Review, 3.5/5 Stars] - Rolling Stone
“...Eerily beautiful” [Review, 3/4 stars] -  USA Today
“There’s something so distinctly summery about the Washed Out sound...the much-anticipated follow-up Paracosm seems as essential to the season as flip-flops and sunscreen...But unlike Washed Out’s previous efforts, in which frosty digital-age samples and drum machines served as the sonic backbone,Paracosm has a lush, natural feel, beginning with a bird-chirping, harp-scaling overture inspired by the rural Georgia retreat.” [Feature]  - Vogue
Paracosm is a beautiful, beautiful album.” [Review, 88%] - FILTER
“It All Feels Right” bumps with light reggae upticks before momentarily collapsing into a sunstroke, while “Great Escape” leans off the beat just enough to generate a little bit of Southern soul…However, Greene is growing in terms of melodic construct, as the chorus of “Don’t Give Up” is the strongest and trickiest he’s ever written." [Review] - Pitchfork

Listen to Nikki Lane's New Album "All Or Nothin'" via NPR

 Listen to Nikki Lane's New LP All Or Nothin' via NPR First Listen



 All Or Nothin’ Out May 6th via New West Records


Listen + Share “Seein’ Double” via Elle.com 

Currently on Tour with The Whigs; Old 97's Tour Kicks Off May 5th 

 Hailed for her “bold, idiosyncratic sound,” NPR has selected Nikki Lane’s forthcoming sophomore album, All Or Nothin’ for a coveted First Listen, joining the likes of Dolly Parton and Lykke Li for this week’s selection. The record, produced by The Black Keys’ Dan Auerbach and out May 6 on New West Records, is streaming in full at NPR.org who exclaimed: “The effect never feels merely nostalgic, and it never seems insincere. Instead, All or Nothin' simply sounds like the work of a performer who knows when to embrace her contradictions: classic and modern, iconoclastic and approachable, country and rock, urban and rural. 

NPR’s support comes on the heels of a track premiere with Elle.com for Lane’s “Seein’ Double,” a darkly personal track with surf-twang guitars and a propulsive barbed hook of a chorus. Listen to the song via Elle.

Testament to Lane’s versatility and widespread appeal, she is currently out on the road opening for Athens rockers The Whigs and will immediately follow the tour with a West Coast run supporting alt-country stalwarts the Old 97’s with dates in Los Angeles, San Francisco, Seattle and Portland. The Nashville-based South Carolina-bred chanteuse will tour heavily in support of All Or Nothin’ and just confirmed the Austin City Limits Music Festival in October. Like the thoughts and emotions behind them, Lane’s songs shift and ebb in the live setting but she promises whether she’s playing solo or with a full band she approaches each song “in the most badass way possible.” Full routing is below with many more dates to be announced soon.

With just a week before release, All Or Nothin’ is already starting to make an impact at radio. Early support has come from KEXP, who described the album as “an evocative, moody blend of noirish country-pop, ‘60s girl groups, bluesy garage-rock, spaghetti western and more” as well as SiriusXM’s The Loft, WUMB in Boston and several others. 

All Or Nothin’ sees Lane teaming up with some of the finest musicians and songwriters in Nashville to craft an album that fully realizes her musical vision. Produced by Auerbach, who Lane met at her pop-up vintage clothing stall when he wanted to buy the 1940s hunting jacket she was wearing, the rousing collection of songs spans genres and eras and exudes with Lane's characteristic attitude and Southern swagger. “I wrote with so many amazing musicians on this album but Dan was really instrumental in helping me figure out the direction we were going for,” Lane says.

Over 12 tracks, Lane sings tales about misbehaving, wanton desires, heartache, love and lust. "It's always the right time to do the wrong thing," she repeats like a mantra during the infectious opener "Right Time" and that statement defines All Or Nothin' as good as anything will. “I really consider this album to be a Nikki Lane mixtape of my thoughts and the sounds that I’m into so that’s why you can’t put it in a neat box,” Lane says. From the whimsical, dreamy sensation of “I Don’t Care” to the stripped-down acoustic duet with Auerbach, “Love’s On Fire,” to the plaintive ballad “Out of My Mind,” written with former touring partner J. Spaceman of Spiritualized and the woozy, blue-eyed soul of the title track, the album showcases the many sides of Lane and her diverse influences.

Lane’s passion for music is only matched by her passion for fashion, evident from her album cover, which features her decked out in a white fringe dress and gold cape, to her impeccable stage outfits – vintage embrodiered shirts, boots, western attire, and leather motorcycle jackets. The born entrepenuer has parlayed her penchant and knowledge for the clothes of yesteryear into a successful business she calls High Class Hillbilly, a vintage clothing stall she takes around Nashville and out on tour with her, fueling the enterprise with pieces she collects on the road. In addition to selling her own wares, the style maven is highly sought after by clothing and accessory brands; she has worked with Warby Parker, Frye Boots, Minnetonka Moccasins, Billy Reid, TOMS and most recently Vans.

Armed with a compelling album and her fiery personality, Lane is poised to have a breakout year. Just one of the many reasons why CMT singled her out for thier “Next Women of Country” campaign, putting her in the same company as 2013’s artists Kacey Musgraves and Brandy Clark.

Brian Jonestown Massacre will release their 14th album, Revelation, on May 20, 2014through A Records (Redeye Distribution). Listen to “What You Isn’t” here:https://soundcloud.com/wastedyouthpr/brian-jonestown-massacre-what/s-qA0r2
Encompassing all the weirdness that has been discovered in the past 40 years,Revelation advances the traditional Brian Jonestown Massacre sound of mixing eastern influences with western rock. Two-dozen band members later and numerous “ups and downs” (some have been famously sensationalized in the media), the one thing that has always remained consistent for this psychedelic collective, is front man Mr. Anton Alfred Newcombe.

Recorded from late 2012-2014, Revelation is the first album that was fully recorded and produced at Anton’s recording studio in Berlin, Germany. Original band member, Ricky Maymi plays guitar on this album plus features a vocal performance in Swedish byJoachim Alhund (Les Big Byrd/Teddybears) on “Vad Hände Med Dem?” Other special guests include: Constatine Karlis (Dimmer) on drums, Ryan Van Kriedt (Asteroid #4) on guitar, and Anton plays the rest.

Anton also releases music by other bands through his A Records including: Les Big ByrdThe Worshipped Cats (May 20), Blue Angel LoungeA Sea Of Trees (May 20),The KVBOut of Body (June 3) who were recently named one of Alternative Press’ 100 Bands You Need To Know This Year.

Brian Jonestown Massacre are confirmed to headline Austin Psych Fest and select live dates on the West Coast in May.  The band will then begin a 45-date tour of mainland Europe including the band’s first ever dates in Warsaw, Prague and Athens:http://www.brianjonestownmassacre.com/?news=euro-tour-2014
Anton explains why the album is named Revelation:
“The simple answer is I love the word. Most of the time I would classify my work "śruti," i.e. "what is heard" definition of the word “revelation.” But on this album and with these songs, there was nothing. No ideas and no guidance and I was still able to create the record for me. That was a revelation.”
