Bambara announce new LP ‘Stray’ & 2020 tour (listen to “Serafina”)


Brooklyn’s Bambara are back with new album Stray that will be out February 14 via Wharf Cat. (That’s just shy of two years after 2018’s terrific A Shadow on Everything.) The first single is “Serafina,” a smoldering, swaggering number that nods to Ennio Morricone and gothy postpunk but lets in a few rays of light. “Stray is a death-obsessed album,” says Bambara’s Reid Bateh. “Most of the songs are about different characters’ futile attempts at living meaningful lives under the weight of imminent annihilation. I wanted ‘Serafina’ to feel different. I wanted the song to radiate a sort of wild-eyed hope. A youthful disregard for death itself.” You can watch the lyric video, and check out album art and tracklist below.

Bambara will be on tour in 2020, beginning February 19 in DC and wrapping up March 17 in Carrboro, NC. There’s no NYC show currently on their 2020 tour but later this fall Bambara will play Brooklyn’s Saint Vitus on November 8 and tickets are on sale.

All dates are listed below.
