Just in time for winter, BON IVER have announced a new 4 song 12"/cdep entitled Blood Bank. From the title track's remembrance of the winter warmth we seek, to the summer love tribute of b-side gem "Babys", Bon Iver's snow-blanketed harmonies live across the seasons. Still, there is a reverence for sabbatical, solitude and the winding down of time. As much as "For Emma, Forever Ago" is about the cold, the Blood Bank collection is about the warmth that gets you through it."Blood Bank" is now available for pre-order. Bon Iver played his second of two shows at Town Hall here in NYC last night (12/11). His third NYC show in a row goes down tonight/Friday at Music Hall of Williamsburg. Last night you may have also caught them on Letterman. A bunch of other people definitely did...
Blood Bank will be released in the US on 1/20/09 and in the UK on 1/19/09. If you can't wait until then, head out to one of the bands shows stretching through the end of December hitting the East coast and parts of the Midwest where they will be selling the vinyl version.
"I usually hate the musical guests on late night shows because it's designed to kill the time between :21 and :35 with a 3-4 minute performance. However, Letterman does a great job with his performers. Tonight, they had Bon Iver... who I had never heard before in my life." [Chris Duncan]

"i was absolutely blown away by you guys on lettermen !!! that was amazing, hope to see your guys on tour sometime real soon !! " [Austin on MySpace]
"Just saw you on Letterman! Really good! I was wondering why the name was so familiar. So I went to add you and realized I had added you long ago. I guess this grants me the right to always say, "I added those guys on Myspace before they were even on Letterman"." [Nikki P. & The Anticlimatics on MySpace]
