Young Widows
YW

Young Widows are hitting the road in support of their new Kurt Ballou-produced debut for Temporary Residence Limited, Old Wounds (up for pre-order NOW). The tour includes one date at Death By Audio on Oct 25th. Full tour dates are below.

Meanwhile, in a dimly lit smokey-filled section of Portland, YW labelmates Grails announced a new album of their own, Doomsdayer's Holiday, due Oct 7th (NSFW cover art below). Doomsayer's is the follow-up to the recently dropped Take Refuge In Clean Living (on Important) and the band is streaming the first taste, "Reincarnation Blues" at their myspace. Doomsdayer's Holiday goes up for pre-order on Sept 1st on CD and 180 Gram vinyl in 4 different variants (two different covers, and three different vinyl colors: black, a metallic gold/clear mix, or metallic silver/clear mix).

Speaking of Grails, Emil Amos's other band, Om are opening for Dinosaur Jr in CT and NJ. The NJ show is at the Stone Pony on September 24th. Tickets are on sale. The CT show is September 19th at Toad's Place.

Om and Dinosaur Jr. are both also playing the ATP Festival in upstate New York along with touring partners Meat Puppets, Built to Spill, and The Drones who are all playing Toad's Place together on September 17th. Every band mentioned in this paragraph also has one or more NYC shows coming up, except Om. Dinosaur Jr, BTS & MP are at Terminal 5. The Drones are playing Pianos and Union Hall.
