Volcano Choir Release First Single “Byegone”

Volcano Choir previews first single "Byegone" from "Repave" out September 2 on Jagjaguwar

Volcano Choir’s “Byegone” is an anthem that rises and churns like the sea – an exemplification of what’s possible at the intersection of plush, thoughtful instrumentation and a signature vocal performance. The sound of their collaboration is in lockstep – writing together in real time, providing each other feedback face-to-face, and occupying live stages in front of fans.

“Byegone” is the first single from Repave, the second album by Wisconsin band Volcano Choir, out on Jagjaguwar on September 3rd in North America and on September 2nd in Europe. Volcano Choir will tour for the first time in North America this fall; tour dates in both the Midwest and on the East Coast are listed below!

day dead bye-gone
laying near the lights of the knights of the northern lodges
there’s a border road
no one slip slides or is stoppin’
and the neighborly, sleeping in a coffin
with enough keif
you could really bore someone
took a rat trap out to the Ache Inn
we were drinking all the ways to down
door ‘as wide open
you know what were saying ‘bout us now
he’s a legend
i’m a legend
and we both go tripping thru the door
i heard you promise me
at the north end of monogamy
cut there from filament lead
somewhere i heard you scream:
for others’ hearts
and in the limiest of lights
hold the keys to a Cuban flight that you won’t ever ride
it’s time to up and die
set sail!!!!!
set sail!!!!
set sail!!!!
set sail!!!!
hon, you plenty competent
so why aren’t you confident
it’s softening to be softening
then why are you so constant then?
are we going on a coat ride?
well, were off and definitely stumbling
tossin’ off your compliments, wow
sexing all your Parliaments
