The Low Anthem: Album/Tour

THE LOW ANTHEM TO RELEASE NONESUCH RECORDS DEBUT OH MY GOD, CHARLIE DARWIN ON JUNE 9
East Coast tour dates include Bonnaroo & NYC's Bowery Ballroom

The Low Anthem
Rhode Island-based trio The Low Anthem releases its Nonesuch Records debut, Oh My God, Charlie Darwin, on June 9. The album, which had a limited but critically praised independent release late last year, has an updated track sequence and packaging, and has been remastered by Gateway's Bob Ludwig. Rolling Stone says the music on Charlie Darwin feels "homemade" and "solemnly beautiful," and NPR Music called the song "To Ohio" a "tender stunner" when choosing it as a Song of the Day, saying, "At times languid and haunting, but with detours into Tom Waits-esque stomping and hollering, The Low Anthem's music seems equally informed by Simon & Garfunkel, Bob Dylan, The Band and a late night ride home in Joni Mitchell's car."

In anticipation of the forthcoming release, The Low Anthem spent most of April making their way up the northeastern seaboard with Ray LaMontagne and they are now on tour with Elvis Perkins in Dearland and will soon hit this year's Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival and they've also added a headlining show at New York City's Bowery Ballroom for Monday, June 15. Tickets are $13/$15 (day of show). More shows will be announced soon.

The Low Anthem comprises Jocie Adams, Ben Knox Miller, and Jeff Prystowsky; Adams plays clarinet, Miller plays guitar and sings (and is the group's principle songwriter), and Prystowsky plays bass, but they each play a handful of other instruments on Oh My God, Charlie Darwin and in live performances. The three met while studying at Brown University in Providence, RI, and have been playing together for nearly two years.

Saw the Low Anthem open for Surprise Me Mr. Davis last year (actually, a year a go today I think) in Fall River, MA. Definitely an enjoyable set, interesting sound.

I saw them on the same tour, just a few days earlier in Burlington VT. A great act for sure. They are also on the Ottawa Bluesfest bill that was announced today..... Go get Low!

They opened for Ray Lamontagne on his spring tour this year, definitely an original group. I reccomend.

Saw these guys in a small, intricate venue in Pittsfield, MA in early March. They were headlining so the performance was even better then when the are openers. Its great to see them rotate instruments and the sound that follows. Definately check them out if you get the chance.
