The Concretes kicking off tour w/ Hooray For Earth (Acrylics playing the NYC show too) — dates, MP3s & stuff
It’s been almost four years since singer-songwrtier Victoria Bergstrom (aka Taken By Trees) left the Swedish band she helped found. But The Concretes are still a band and still making new albums with former drummer Lisa Milberg now in the lead slot. Their new album, WYWH, was released in November. Two MP3s from that album are above. A video is below.
The Concretes kick off a North American tour in support of that album, this week in Minneapolis. It hits Bowery Ballroom in NYC on January 22nd. Tickets are still on sale. All dates are listed below.
Hooray For Earth are opening most dates on the tour, including Bowery Ballroom, and have another Brooklyn show coming up at Glasslands on March 8th with Zambri, Rewards, and Lemonade DJs. Hooray For Earth are releasing their debut LP, True Loves, via Dovecote Records on on 5/3. You can grab a song HERE.
Acrylics, who share the label Friendly Fire Recordings with the Concretes, are also opening at the Bowery Show, and you can catch them in Brooklyn at Union Pool on February 5th with Rewards and Blood Orange (aka Lightspeed Champion). Their debut full-length Lives and Treasure is coming out on March 1st. Download “Nightwatch” (which we’ve posted before) from that LP above.
