The Antlers

The Antlers will be playing an upcoming Rooftop Films show on Friday, June 26th at the Open Road Rooftop (350 Grand St). Tickets are on sale. The performance will be accompanied by a showing of the indie film Humpday, which comes out July 10th and costars Mark Duplass, formerly of the Polyvinyl band Volcano, I'm Still Excited!!. (As a side note, that now-broken-up band's only, self-titled LP is being released for the first time on vinyl by the label.)

Frenchkiss is the label releasing a remastered version of The Antlers' debut, Hopsice. That's out now digitally, and available in physical form on August 18th. The album is also currently streaming online.

The band's Friday, August 21st show at the Mercury Lounge will be its release party. Murder Mystery, Twin Thousands and Brent Arnold (solo cello) open. Tickets are on sale now.

Before that gig, you can catch The Antlers on the road with Frightened Rabbit. Both play the Pitchfork Festival.

NPR recently featured The Antlers in a segment that captures the band's Washington D.C. stop on its pre-SXSW tour.

All Antlers tour dates, with the upcoming Rooftop Films music schedule, which includes a 4th of July show with Bachelorette, below...

FRIDAY, June 26
Rooftop Films and Magnolia Pictures Present HUMPDAY
When Andrew unexpectedly shows up on Ben's doorstep late one night, the two old college friends immediately fall into their old dynamic of heterosexual one-upmanship. To save Ben from domestication, Andrew invites Ben to a party at a sex-positive commune. Everyone there plans on making erotic art films for the local amateur porn festival and Andrew wants in. They run out of booze and ideas, save for one: Andrew should have sex with Ben, on camera.
