DOWNLOAD: Young Widows - "Future Heart" (MP3)
Young Widows @ Saint Vitus in April (BKLYN) (more by BBG)
Louisville, KY-based post-hardcore outfit Young Widows are scheduled to hit the road for a brief run in August with fellow Louisville hardcore band Coliseum. The super short run (it's only a five-day tour) finishes off with a show at Chicago's Ultra Lounge on August 5. Advance tickets are on sale.
Young Widows released their most recent album, In and Out of Youth and Lightness, in 2011 via Temporary Residence Limited. The album track "Future Heart" is available for download at the top of this post. It's a scorching three-and-a-half-minute song that starts off with an ambient introduction and progresses to dirty guitar riffs by the time the first chorus rolls around.
Coliseum, as you may remember, didn't make it to their last Chicago show and lost longtime bassist Mike Pascal a week later. The band have announced that their new permanent bassist is Kayhan Vaziri, an old friend. He's already played bass at two of their local shows and will be joining them on tour in August. The band are also planning to record their fourth LP later this year, which they're thinking will hit stores in early-2013 via Temporary Residence Limited.
All 2012 tour dates are listed below, along with some videos.
