Ohio's Saintseneca are following 2015's Such Things with a new album, Pillar of Na, due out August 31 via ANTI- Records (pre-order). It was engineered, mixed, and produced by frequent Bright Eyes collaborator Mike Mogis (who also did the new Speedy Ortiz album), and he also contributed some synth and guitar to the album. The first single is "Frostbiter," which is a little more atmospheric and somber than the band's usual harmony-fueled indie folk, and it sees main member Zac Little duetting with new Saintseneca member Caeleigh Featherstone. The shift in direction is a good look for them; listen below.

The band have also announced their first headlining tour in years (following recent tours opening for Hop Along and Tigers Jaw), including a NYC show on September 6 at Bowery Ballroom. Tickets for that show will be on sale soon. All dates are listed below.
