DOWNLOAD: Nurses - "Fever Dreams" (MP3)


Nurses are set to release Dracula, the followup to 2009's Apple's Acre, on September 20 via Dead Oceans. The new material sees the band continuing to build off the psych-pop of Apple's Acre, but while that album was recorded with little more than an internal Macbook mic, for Dracula they've entered a proper studio and are able to add more dimensions to their sound. Nurses have fleshed out their songs with layered polyrhythmic percussion and enlisted the production duties of Scott Colburn (Animal Collective, Arcade Fire) and Julian Martlew to help fill out the recordings. Have a glimpse at the new material by grabbing an MP3 of "Fever Dreams" above. Album art and tracklist below.

Nurses will tour in support of the new album with Dominant Legs in September and October. All dates are listed below.

The tour hits NYC on October 14 at Mercury Lounge and October 15 at Glasslands. Tickets for Mercury Lounge go on sale Friday (8/12) at noon with an AmEx pre-sale starting Wednesday (8/10) at noon. Tickets for Glasslands are on sale now.

Dominant Legs are releasing a new album too. Check out the video for lead single "Hoop of Love" off Invitation, which comes out September 27 via Lefse, below.
