The Black Heart Procession, the indie rock collective led by Pall Jenkins and Tobias Nathaniel (who also both play in Three Mile Pilot), reissued their January 1998 debut with bonus tracks earlier this year, and they're currently on tour playing it in full to celebrate the almost-20th anniversary. They're currently in NYC, having played Baby's All Right last night (11/15) and playing Mercury Lounge tonight (11/16) (tickets), both with fellow indie vet Sam Coomes of Quasi. Pictures of the Baby's show are in the gallery above.

Pall Jenkins recently spoke to LEO Weekly about celebrating the album's anniversary:

“Somehow the album has stood the test of time,” Pall Jenkins, who founded the band with Tobias Nathaniel in 1997, said. “Usually, I’m weird about playing some older songs like that. It’s kind of where we found what The Black Heart Procession was. It’s always held a certain kind of fondness for when we invented the band.”

[...] “We were living together,” Jenkins said. “We were both freshly out of a relationship. We were drinking whiskey and playing music together and started building these songs together.”
