Brooklyn shoegazers Dead Leaf Echo are back with a new EP, Strawberry Skin, which will be out March 31 via Paper Cup Music. (Pre-order.) The EP was made with three folks who know this sound well: Monte Vallier (Wax Idols, The Soft Moon), Guy Fixen (My Bloody Valentine, Moose, Boo Radleys, he was half of Laika) and Jorge Elbrecht (No Joy, Tamaryn, Kristin Kontrol). We've got the premiere of the EP's title track, which should definitely push buttons for any OG shoegaze fan. Listen:

Dead Leaf Echo are heading to SXSW soon where they have a pretty busy week. They'll also play a few other dates in Texas as well. On returning, they've got an NYC show lined up at Berlin on March 21 with Desert Mountain Tribe. No word on tickets for that show just yet. All dates are listed below.
