Lower Dens Announce New Tour Dates

Lower Dens announce tour with Monsters and Men
Lower Dens

Lower Dens recently announced their forthcoming release The Competition, will drop via Ribbon Music on September 6, 2019. Today, the band has announced they will be hitting the road with Monsters And Men in addition to three release shows in Los Angeles and Baltimore. Along with the album news, Lower Dens also released a new video for album track “Young Republicans.”

“The Competition is a pop album with a concept both emotionally and politically urgent. By design, competition is the driving force of modern capitalism, and the title is lead singer and songwriter Jana Hunter’s (pronouns: they/them, him/his) term for a socio-psychological phenomenon this generates, a kind of psychosis that accelerates our insecurities and anxieties to the point of total overload, corroding our intimacies, our communities, and our senses of self. Hunter says, “The issues that have shaped my life, for better or for worse, have to do with coming from a family and a culture that totally bought into this competitive mindset.  I was wild and in a lot of pain as a kid; home life was very bleak, and pop songs were a guaranteed escape to a mental space where beauty, wonder, and love were possible. I wanted to write songs that might have the potential to do that.”
