White Violet premiered “Fernandina,” the third song released from their upcoming sophomore album Stay Lost, today and can now be streamed below. Recorded with engineer Scott Solter (Centro-matic, Spoon, The Mountain Goats, Superchunk), Stay Lost will be released on September 23, 2014 via Normaltown Records.
Following a handful of recent shows throughout the southeast, White Violet will head back out on the road next week with a September 16th show in New Orleans, kicking off a run of dates that will see the band through Houston, Austin, Dallas, Jackson (MS), and former hometown Athens, GA, where they’ll play a record release show on the 23rd. The tour picks back up in October and now includes dates in St. Louis, MO; Rock Island, IL; Harrisonburg, VA; Winston-Salem, NC; and a CMJ Music Marathon show at The Living Room in New York, NY on October 23rd.
White Violet wrote Stay Lost over the past year, with Nelson demoing the songs’ skeletons before fleshing out each together as a live band. The songs were tracked with Solter at his Fidelitorium Recordings studio over ten days, with Nelson later recording vocals himself at Cortright Recordings in Athens, GA. The album was mixed at Solter’s Durham, NC home.
