Sylvan Esso are on tour now, and they're currently in the midst of a short run with their old pals Collections of Colonies of Bees (who used to count Sylvan Esso's Nick Sanborn as a member, and who just released a very good new album). Sylvan Esso and COCOB kicked off a two-night Chicago stand at the Riv last night (7/23), and pictures of Sylvan Esso are in the gallery above (we missed COCOB). They do it again at the Vic tonight.

After that, Sylvan Esso head to the Northeast to play this weekend's XPoNential Music Festival in NJ, followed by an Upstate NY show. All remaining dates are on the tour poster below.

Syvlan Esso released new single "PARAD(w/m)E" earlier this year, and more recently released a video for "Signal" off last year's What Now. Watch below.
