The Twilight Sad at SXSW 2011 (more by Dominick Mastrangelo)
The Twilight Sad

The Twilight Sad will welcome No One Can Ever Know, the Scots' new LP due via Fat Cat on February 7th. The LP features "Sick", which recently surfaced in single form (available on iTunes) as well as "Kill It In The Morning" which is streaming below.

A few weeks after the album drops, The Twilight Sad will spread their gospel across the US with a string of dates leading to SXSW (and keynote speaker Bruce Springsteen).

Look for the band in Brooklyn on Feb 25th at Music Hall of Williamsburg. Tickets go on AMEX presale at noon on Wednesday (12/14) with regular sale hitting on Friday.

All tour dates and that song stream are below.

Saw them live at Bowery Ballroom a couple years ago. Excellent live band for sure.

I'm listening to Skeleton Crew right now. Full on DOWNTOWN NYC badass music from the '80s. The combination of Fred Frith, Tom Cora and Zeena Parkins is just sick! All you kiddies might know Zeena from some of Bjork's releases; she's who plays all the electric harp. But for realz.

Twilight Sad? What a stupid fucking band name. Will check out their stuff though, with 6 positive comments on this site. Even if it is probably the band and their girlfriends and moms.

"Even if it is probably the band and their girlfriends and moms."

Yep, every Scottish music fan reads BV...and their moms too!

Agreed the name is bad, but is it any dumber than most other band names these days? The music is great.

new song sounds more Cure than Smiths but I feel ya 2:22

I think new songs sound more New Order-ish. Mentioning The Cure covers all the bases, though. Looking forward to it.
