Athens, GA's self-proclaimed psychedelic country band Futurebirds will follow 2015's Hotel Parties LP with the Portico 1 EP on November 4 via Easy Sound (pre-order). It's the first in a two-part series, which concludes with Portico 2 in 2017. Both EPs feature music that they feel didn't fit on their next full length, and both have pedal steel by Kiffy from Roadkill Ghost Choir. The lead single is the pleasant, atmospheric and twangy "Only Here For Your Love," which premieres in this post along with a video. Watch:

Futurebirds also announced a tour, including a NYC show on December 6 at Rough Trade with Loamlands. Tickets go on AmEx presale today (10/26) at noon and the general on-sale starts Friday (10/28) at noon. All dates are listed below.
