Bambara have announced Love On My Mind, a six-song mini-LP that will be out February 25 via Wharf Cat. The core trio of Reid and Blaze Bateh and William Brookshire made the EP in NYC with vocal help from Bria Salmena (Orville Peck) and Drew Citron (Public Practice), plus horns from Jason Disu and Jeff Tobias (Sunwatchers).

Both Bria and Drew feature on the first single, "Mythic Love," which is another of Bambara's signature dark, sweeping romances, full of Spaghetti Western guitars and high drama. "The song is about riding that first manic wave of infatuation wherever it leads," says Reid, "dismantling all of your previous associations with love along the way." You can watch the video for "Mythic Love," directed by Kevin Condon and the band, below.

Bambara didn't really get to tour for last year's Stray (it came out just weeks before lockdown) but they'll soon be making up for lost time. They'll be opening for Nothing on a few East Coast tour dates in December, and have extensive European/UK dates in the spring, including a run with IDLES.

They've also got a 2022 show at Brooklyn's Music Hall of Williamsburg on May 22 and tickets are on sale now. All dates are listed below.

Meanwhile, Nothing play NYC this Friday at Elsewhere with Anxious, Enumclaw and Frankie Rose.
