Porches announce new album and tour (watch “Do U Wanna” video)


Porches are back with a new album, Ricky Music, due out on March 13 via Domino. Aaron Maine made the album between December 2017 and the spring of 2019, mostly at his NYC apartment but also in Chicago, Los Angeles and while on tour in Europe. “This record is an account of the beauty, confusion, anger, joy and sadness I experienced during that time,” says Maine. “I think I was as lost as I was madly in love. In these songs I hear myself sometimes desperate for clarity, and other times, having enough perspective to laugh at myself in some of my darkest moments. That’s sort of what this album is about, I hope you enjoy it.”

The first single is “Do U Wanna” which Maine says is “about looking at yourself and realizing the disparity between how you’d like to act and how you actually act. The fun you vs. the isolated you. I feel like with the refrain I’m almost taunting myself to get up and do something.” Watch the video for that below.

Porches will be on tour with Sassy 009 starting on March 23 in Richmond, and wrapping up in NYC on April 29 at Webster Hall. Tickets for the Webster Hall show, and all dates of the tour, go on sale Friday, January 24 at 10 AM. All dates are listed, along with album art and tracklist, below.
