The Parson Red Heads announce Spring tour dates with Blitzen Trapper including a swing through SXSW 2012!
A band whose music harkens to the most prolific and inventive elements in the canon of West Coast psych-folk, in 2011 The Parson Red Heads celebrated the release of Yearling and toured supporting that release with Viva Voce, Alela Diane and Fruit Bats.
The true power of The Parson Red Heads is undeniable live. The group will take a break from working on their follow-up effort to Yearling with a handful of shows at the end of the month with Tommy Keene and then hit the road with fellow music mavericks Blitzen Trapper on a run of dates that will bring the group down to this year’s SXSW!
For a glimpse of what to expect from The Parson Red Heads, check out Americana-celebrating, on-the-road videos of Yearling tracks “Burning Up the Sky” and “Seven Years Ago”, and give a listen to NPR’s “World Cafe:Next” feature with album tracks “Burning Up the Sky” and “Kids Hanging Out.”
