Polica Shares “Chain My Name” From Shulamith

Polica Premieres "Chain My Name" From Shulamith, Out October 22nd on Mom+Pop || Playing iTunes Festival 9/2 with Sigur Ros, Two Shows at Radio City Music Hall with The XX

Today, Polica unveiled the second single from Shulamith, the eagerly anticipated follow-up to 2012’s breakout Give You The Ghost. Buoyant and propulsive in a way the band only hinted at before now, “Chain My Name” is a relentlessly catchy four minutes of synth-driven pop. Listen above.

Beginning tomorrow, the track will be available with preorder of the album at iTunes and on http://www.thisispolica.com. Pre-orders directly from the band will come with a limited-edition signed 24×24 lithograph commissioned by Polica themselves from Minneapolis artist Michael Gaughan. Additionally, the band will be offering up a 12×9 32-page Shulamith book comprised of lyrics, handwritten notes from the band, candid glimpses into the world of Polica shot by frequent visual collaborator Cameron Wittig.

In other news, Polica was recently announced to be appearing at the iTunes Festival on 9/2. Today also marks the announcement of a pair of hometown Minneapolis dates at Mill City Nights, both presented in conjunction with KCMP. Two more dates have been added to the previously-announced tour, one in Philadelphia presented by WXPN at Union Transfer and another in Washington, DC at the 9:30 Club. A full itinerary of dates is below.
