Yellow Ostrich broke up in 2014, but founder Alex Schaaf brought the name back last year, releasing a new album, Soft, under the moniker. He's going on tour this summer and fall, with East Coast and Midwest dates in August (including NYC shows at TV Eye on August 12 and Mercury Lounge on August 13, both with Bathtub Cig), and a West Coast run in October. See all dates below.

To celebrate Yellow Ostrich's return, and their tour, we've teamed up with them and Barsuk Records to give away a copy of their records on vinyl: the 10th anniversary deluxe edition of their classic 2011 album The Mistress; 2012's long out-of-print Strange Land, 2014's Cosmos, and a very special test pressing of Soft, which won't be out on vinyl until 2023. Enter for a chance to win below!
