Reigning Sound, who are set to release their first album for Merge and their first full-length album since 2009’s Love and Curses, have announced additional tour dates. The new dates include a show at Bowery Ballroom in New York City, appearances at Transfiguration II: Harvest and the Hopscotch Festival in Raleigh, as well as shows in Columbus, Chicago and Bloomington. Listen to the lead single off of the upcoming album, “Falling Rain,” above.
Along with Greg Cartwright, who is the only constant member of Reigning Sound since 2001, the current lineup consists of Benny Trokan, Mike Catanese, Mikey Post and Dave Amels. Shattered, which is due to be release on July 15th via Merge Records, is preceded by five studio LPs as well as numerous EPs and live records. The album was recorded at Daptone’s Brooklyn studio (where drummer Mikey works in the office) and masterfully engineered by Wayne Douglas.
