Big Thief share song, expand tour, including a church show in Brooklyn

Big Thief at Cheer Up Charlies
Big Thief at BV/SOS Lost Weekend in March (more by Amanda Hatfield)

Big Thief‘s new album Capacity comes out next week (6/9) via Saddle Creek, and going by the gorgeous singles that have already been released, it’s gonna be a good one. They’ve got a lot of tour dates coming up and they recently added even more.

Big Thief will play a Northside Fest show on June 10 at the Park Church Co-Op in Greenpoint, which sounds like a very beautiful and apt location to see them in. Opening that show is Twain, The Relatives, and The Brother Brothers. Tickets go on sale Friday (6/2) at noon.

That’s in addition to Big Thief’s Northside show at Rough Trade (6/9) a day earlier with Mega Bog and Really Big Pinecone (tickets). Big Thief also open for Conor Oberst at Prospect Park on July 20, with Hop Along on the bill too (tickets). Updated dates are listed below.

Speaking of Northside shows at Park Church Co-Op, BrooklynVegan and AdHoc are presenting one with Aldous Harding, Tiny Hazard, and M Lamar on June 8 (tickets).

UPDATE (5/31): Big Thief released another song from Capacity, “Mary.” Listen:
