Rose Windows announce tour, share Sun Dog details

Seattle-based band Rose Windows have scheduled a lengthy U.S. West Coast tour to preview The Sun Dogs, their forthcoming debut album, out worldwide via Sub Pop on June 25th on CD, LP, and digitally. The tour will begin May 4th in Davis, CA at Sophia’s Thai Kitchen and ends on May 26th in Portland, OR at Doug Fir. Additionally, the band have a handful of festival performances to mention: May 25th in George, WA for the Sasquatch Music Festival; July 27th in Seattle, WA at Capitol Hill Block Party;  And September 5th-7th in Raleigh, NC for Hopscotch Music Fest.

The genesis of Rose Windows started Fall 2010 in a house in Seattle’s Central District, where Chris Cheveyo found himself tiring of the limited palette of his prior heavy post-rock project. Though interested in new sonic possibilities, he was turned off by experimental music’s lazy reliance on “knob-turning.” His explorations became less about possibilities associated with new technology and more about studying various avenues of the past. The project began with a few rough demos done alone at home and slowly began to take shape as the band amassed members. Bandmates were mainly musician friends who wandered through the house. Rabia Shaheen Qazi’s enchanting and exotic voice was the first component added to the fray. Roommate David Davila was asked to play piano and organ.
