Jose Gonzalez's Rock Band Junip Confirms Tour Dates

JOSE GONZALEZ-FRONTED ROCK BAND SET TO RELEASE RECORDS AND TOUR
NEW SONG AVAILABLE FOR DOWNLOAD

Junip
Junip was formed in Gothenburg, Sweden, in the late '90s by Jose Gonzalez (guitar, vocals), Elias Araya (drums) and Tobias Winterkorn (organ, moog). Their first 7" came out in 2000 and they self-released the Black Refuge EP in 2006. RCRDLBL distributed the single "Chickens/Azaleadalen" in 2009. Junip has periodically gathered together and recorded when schedules permitted, but this is the first time the members will focus exclusively on the band. An EP and full-length will be released in 2010 with Mute in the U.S. and Canada, City Slang in Europe, Shock in Australia and Ultra-Vybe in Japan. Global touring will commence this spring. A short American tour has been confirmed to start on June 8 in Brooklyn, NY, ending in Seattle on June 19. The touring band will add two members.

Says Gonzalez about the band: "We are really happy to have had the time to write and record these songs and now are excited to have the opportunity to play them live."

Junip is now offering a first listen to their new music with a free download of the song "Rope and Summit" here.

Their sound can be familiar to those who have listened to Gonzalez's critically acclaimed records, but added to the mix on top of his nylon stringed guitar and distinctive voice are organs, synths and drums. The songs are often dynamic, melodic and shadowy.

Tour dates are available below.
