Young Jesus and Ian Sweet announce new albums, touring together

Young Jesus Whole Thing Is Just There

Young Jesus signed to Saddle Creek last year and re-released their 2017 LP S/T on the label earlier this year, and now they’ve announced their first new album for the label. It’s called The Whole Thing Is Just There, it’s due out October 12, and the first single is “Deterritory.” Over the course of the song’s six minutes, it treks through slowcore-ish indie rock, math rock-tinged emo, expansive post-rock, and more. It’s good stuff, and it makes this new album seem pretty promising. Listen and watch the video below.

Young Jesus also announced a tour with Ian Sweet and Sean Henry, including a show on November 5 at Greenpoint’s gorgeous Park Church Co-Op (which is thankfully staying open at least through the end of 2018). Tickets for that show go on sale Friday (8/17) at 10 AM. All dates are listed below.

Ian Sweet also just announced a new album, Crush Crusher, due October 26 via Hardly Art. The lead single is atmospheric indie rocker “Hiding” and you can watch its Alix Spence-directed video below.
