Wand announce new LP, share “Scarecrow,” touring around SXSW

Wand_byAbbyBanks_02

Wand will release new album Laughing Matter on April 19 via Drag City. It’s a 15-track double LP that, even further than last year’s Perfume EP, finds Cory Hanson and the rest of the group distancing themselves even further from their garage-psych roots, in favor of a textured, dynamic style that incorporates prog and other elements. First single is the slow building “Scarecrow” that is both gorgeous and wigged out. You can watch a very effective performance video, directed by Gordon De Los Santos, below.

Wand will be on tour surrounding their appearance at SXSW, hitting Phoenix, Dallas, Tucson, San Diego, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Seattle, and Portland. They’ll also head to the UK and Europe in May. All dates are listed below.
