Most Serene Republic

The Most Serene Republic are going on tour this fall in support of their newest record, …And The Ever Expanding Universe, which is out now on Arts & Crafts. Check out a track from it, above. Those tour dates, which kick off in September, include NYC shows at (Le) Poisson Rouge on October 8th and Southpaw the next night.

The band will be joined at both shows by Seattle’s Grand Archives, who join them for the bulk of the tour. That band’s new record, Keep In Mind Frankenstein, is due September 15th on Sub Pop. The label writes, “[the disc] opens with the bittersweet elegy ‘Topsy’s Revenge,’ inspired by the infamous 1903 newsreel footage of Thomas Edison electrocuting a rogue Coney Island elephant” (that’s timely). Check out a track from the record above; album art and track list are below.

Tickets are on sale for Le Poisson Rouge and Southpaw.

Most Serene are also on the new Arts & Crafts sampler.

In June, Most Serene Republic previewed tracks from their new album at a set of NYC shows, as well as a stop at Toronto’s NXNE. Check out two new album songs and the busy stage at that gig (being on Arts & Crafts requires the band to have at least half a dozen members) with all tour dates, below…
