Raleigh indie rockers The Love Language released their new record, Ruby Red, this week, and they've just also put out the video for its single, "Calm Down," which features a Cameo by Laura Ballance of Love Language's Merge labelmates Superchunk. Check out the new video below.
As discussed, The Love Language are supporting the new album on a tour with another solid indie rock band, Eternal Summers. That tour comes to NYC soon for shows on July 31 at Mercury Lounge and August 1 at Glasslands. Tickets for Mercury Lounge and Glasslands are still available, but we're also giving away a pair to each show. Details on how to enter to win are below.
