DOWNLOAD: The New Pornographers - Your Hands Together (MP3)

New Pornographers

The New Pornographers are gearing up for their album-supporting shows this summer in Europe and North America.

The new disc, Together, comes out May 4th, and their first show after its release (which comes more than a month before their other North American shows) will happen on May 6th at Woodstock, NY's 250-seat Bearsville Theater (about 2 hour drive north of NYC). Tickets are on sale now.

That show and the others on their tour will feature the band's full eight-member lineup: A.C. Newman, Blaine Thurier (keys), John Collins (bass, etc.), Todd Fancey (guitar), Kurt Dahle (drums), Kathryn Calder (vox, keys), Neko Case (vox) and Dan Bejar (vox, guitar, et).

Their full tour comes to NYC directly on June 19th for a show at Terminal 5 with tourmates The Dodos and The Dutchess and the Duke. Tickets are still on sale.

Neko Case is currently touring as part of Jakob Dylan's band, and they play two nights in NYC starting tonight (4/21). You can catch them on Letterman tonight too.

Together's first single is posted again above. The second, "The Crash Years," is available on iTunes. There's also a series of listening parties in various cities (NYC TBA) for the record coming up. More info on those, all tour dates and a new video with actor Adam Goldberg interviewing members of the band (and album guests Zach Condon, Will Sheff and Daptone's Neal Sugarman) are below...

"I don't think Dan and Neko are going ont he European leg, but I might be mistaken"

are or aren't?

Dan being at these shows makes it worth going to T5.

::wonders which small venue they'll play on 6/20::

Posted by Anonymous | April 21, 2010 3:20 PM

guessing they'll play carl's apartment on 6/20... one song... "sleep".

and, yes, dan being there makes this worth going to T5.

Together is a terrible song, but I like these dudes (and chicks).

3:16 - don't...not sure about Dan, but i heard Neko was unable and Miranda Brown from Crooked Fingers was joining the NPs for the euro leg. All that coulda changed, tho.

@3:36,
Woodstock is pretty capitalist now, the people do still suck though

6/20 - Brooklyn Bowl since MHOW is already booked.

Posted by Anonymous | April 21, 2010 5:33 PM

i could see them adding bell house too.

"Crash Years" is awesome. "Your Hands Together" isn't very good.

Posted by Anonymous | April 21, 2010 9:36 PM

I'm hoping Bell House, I know Carl likes the Venue as he's played there a few times already. I'll probably be going to the Troc in Philly, I really cannot stand Terminal 5.

Are these guys into porn and in a new way?

No No there not, but people posting about Child Abuse might think so by their logic.

Just an excellent pop rock band.

Siamese Dream and Mellon Collie were really good albums. Got them when they came out, still throw them on at times and think they're great. It saddens me when I hear bands from that era when I was a teenager and hear their new stuff and it's so clear how they've lost it, they sound desperate to recapture a sound/magic that they haven't had in 15 years (holy shit).... And then I realize that is not unlike a lot of us.
