IDLEHANDS SIGNS TO
EQUAL VISION RECORDS / HEADPHONE MUSIC

PREMIERES MUSIC VIDEO FOR “MELLOW CHRIST”

ANNOUNCES SUMMER TOUR DATES

Image description

San Diego, CA’s Idlehands has signed to Headphone Music, an Equal Vision Records imprint.

The experimental indie-rock quintet is also premiering a music video today, for “Mellow Christ” featuring Justin Bonifacio of Ghost Parade. The video is premiering now on Youtube.com/equalvision.

The song originally appeared on a split 7” with Ghost Parade and will also be featured on Idlehands' debut full-length album, which will be released later this year. The new album was recorded in Portland, OR with producer Kris Crummett (A Lot Like Birds, Closure In Moscow), and is the follow-up to the band's 2013 EP,Common Soul.

“Along with releasing “Mellow Christ” as our new music video, we are so excited to be announcing our signing to Headphone Music / Equal Vision Records,” sharesIdlehands’ vocalist Johnny O’Hagan.

“We will be joining a great team of artists, from both past and present. This has been a step we have been working towards for quite some time. We anticipate a bright future with our new home at Headphone Music and Equal Vision Records!”

Idlehands is comprised of Johnny O’Hagan (vocals), Michael Brekka (guitar), Seancarlo Ohlin (guitar), Phil Di Raffaele (drums), and Matthew Joaquin (bass).

The band has several upcoming summer tour dates confirmed, including a show tonight in Riverside, CA and a short set of tour dates throughout California with Hail The Sun and My Iron Lung, that kick off tomorrow in San Diego. Idlehands will then head out on a two-week run of shows in July, with Icarus The Owl. All upcoming tour dates can be found below.

THE DEAR HUNTER’S CASEY CRESCENZO TO RELEASE 
DEBUT SYMPHONY “AMOUR & ATTRITION” IN JUNE 

PREMIERES EXCERPT OF “MOVEMENT I” FROM SYMPHONY
 
THE DEAR HUNTER TO CO-HEADLINE SUMMER TOUR WITH RX BANDITS

image

Today, Casey Crescenzo, multi-instrumentalist and frontman of The Dear Hunter, announces the official release dates for his debut symphony, ”Amour & Attrition.” 

The symphony will be released digitally on June 3 and physically (CD/vinyl) on June 24. Preorders for “Amour & Attrition” are available now at: http://merchnow.com/catalogs/casey-crescenzo

For the first time, fans can now hear an excerpt from “Movement I” of the symphony, in the video clip above.

This past November, “Amour & Attrition” was performed in its entirety and recorded in the Czech Republic with the Brno Philharmonic Orchestra under the direction of conductor Mikel Toms. The project was funded by over 1,200 supporters through crowdfunding platform PledgeMusic, exceeding its goal in just a couple of weeks and allowing Crescenzo to fulfill his longtime dream of writing and recording his very own symphony with a full orchestra. Some clips from the recording process can be seen at: http://youtu.be/OqBaW4Al9_g

"Mikel Toms, the conductor of the Brno orchestra, is definitely owed a deep amount of gratitude from me for making this a reality," shares Crescenzo. "He assisted me in every step, from scheduling, reviewing my scores, and so much more. He also really took the time to understand the motive of the music, and it shows in the recording."

He continues, “While I do feel a great sense of accomplishment, I know that it wouldn’t have been remotely possible without the incredible help, and encouragement, from the community of people who supported this project. The best way I could show my appreciation was by pouring myself into the symphony and creating something we could all be proud to say we were a part of. I am ecstatic for people to hear ‘Amour & Attrition.’”

The symphony will be self-released through Cave & Canary Goods — Crescenzo’s personal imprint label within Equal Vision Records — which recently released Naive Thieves’ debut full-length album “Vámonos”,  as well as The Dear Hunter's latest album, “Migrant.”

This summer, The Dear Hunter will head out on a five-week U.S. co-headline tour with RX Bandits, and supporting act From Indian Lakes. The tour will kick off on July 11 in St. Petersburg and wrap up on August 17 in Houston. All upcoming tour dates for The Dear Hunter can be found below.

Following the tour, The Dear Hunter will next enter the studio to record the highly anticipated follow-up to “Migrant.”

"After an extended silent season, I am beyond ready for my band to get back out into the world," concludes Crescenzo. "This tour couldn’t have come at a better time. I’m so excited to see old friends, make new ones, and sing until my lungs break."
