The Low Anthem are scheduled to release their new album, Eyeland on June 17 via Washington Square Records. Pre-sales begin May 20. They've released an album teaser…check it out below.
An unprecedented collection of multi-dimensional future folk crafted with true vision and emotional depth, EYELAND follows an extraordinary five-year journey for The Low Anthem. What began as a "vague and rather abstract" short story by co-founder/singer/guitarist Ben Knox Miller became real life as Low Anthem immersed themselves in the creation of their own Eyeland Studios, developing Providence's once obsolete Columbus Theatre into an innovative recording space and live concert venue. EYELAND proves a prism of the album's inner themes, refracting Miller and co-founding drummer/multi-instrumentalist Jeff Prystowsky's sonic escapades into a full-blown Möbius strip of music and meaning. Low Anthem's lofty aspirations and creative capriciousness resonate throughout songs like "Her Little Cosmos," "The Pepsi Moon" and "Behind The Airport Mirror," their elegiac arrangements and lyrical frankness marked by shimmering ambience and a hauntingly defiant tension. Psychedelic in the truest sense of that overused word, EYELAND is a perspective-shifting musical experience at once elliptical and intangible yet still precise and powerfully personal.
Having spent the better part of the decade in their own hermetically sealed universe, The Low Anthem will introduce the world to EYELAND via a world tour, their first in four years. A complete itinerary and ticket information will be announced soon. For updates, please visit www.lowanthem.com/site/touring.
