The Low Anthem Free MP3 & West Coast Debut


The Low Anthem
After returning from an extensive European tour last week, Rhode Island trio The Low Anthem are preparing to continue on in the U.S. in support of their Nonesuch debut, Oh My God, Charlie Darwin. After a performance at Austin City Limits, and a homecoming show at the beautiful Avon Cinema in Providence, the band will be making their west coast debut with Portland group Blind Pilot, before finishing out the end of the year with Josh Ritter.

In celebration of their return to the states, the band is offering a cover of Bob Dylan's "Dignity" on their website for FREE mp3 Download in exchange for people joining their mailing list. The song "Dignity" was first released on Greatest Hits Volume Three. The band played it often during soundcheck, finally recording it in at a studio in Amsterdam for a radio show.

The Low Anthem has spent the greater part of the year touring with acts such as Elvis Perkins In Dearland, Joe Pug, Ray LaMontagne, Josh Ritter, and Langhorne Slim in support of their highly praised Nonesuch debut, Oh My God, Charlie Darwin. Their tours have taken them through a number of prestigious festivals, including Bonnaroo, Glastonbury, Lollapalooza, and the recent 50th Anniversary of the Newport Folk Festival, where they had humble beginnings working as recycling crew. This time around they got to share the stage with some of their heroes, including Pete Seeger, Arlo Guthrie, and Gillian Welch during a group sing-along.

Paste has named Oh My God, Charlie Darwin one of the best albums of 2009 so far, the album was a New York Times Critic's Pick, and NPR's Bob Boilen coined the song "Charlie Darwin" the best of the year so far.

"One of the breakthrough albums of 2009... A highly eventful journey into American songcraft, variously echoing Dylan, Springsteen, The Band, and Tom Waits." - MOJO "Really beautiful... The great music, it's not what you play; it's what you don't play." - Billy Bragg (PROJO)
