Mates of State @ ACL in 2008 (more by Kyle Dean Reinford)
Mates of State are set to release their new LP, Mountaintops on September 13th via Barsuk Records. The album will serve as a proper follow up to 2008's Re-Arrange Us; 2010's Crushes (The Covers Mixtape) aside.
The husband-and-wife fronted band have a few scattered dates this summer (including Escape to NY), and then will kick off a tour in support of the album in late-September. Their September dates feature Suckers, while their October stops will see Other Lives. Chicago-based band; Yawn will be along for the full-ride of tour.
Their first single off of the LP titled, "Maracas" is manifested in a very 80s video after the jump.
Mates of State, Suckers, and Yawn will play Metro on September 30th.
