AU begin touring their new album in their native USA later this week, and the Portland duo have just announced a set of European dates - their first in three years - to follow the release of Both Lights on April 2. There are more to come (including UK shows) so keep your eyes peeled on our live page.
A brilliant live version of the first single from the album, 'Solid Gold', was filmed by Oregon collective Into The Woods late last year. Under the series banner 'Feels Like Home' AU core members Luke Wyland and Dana Valatka were joined in the latter's old living room by a backing band of local musicians, some of whom (including vocalist Holland Andrews) feature on Both Lights. We have copies of the 'Solid Gold' yellow 7" in our shop and you can still download the mp3 for free from our Soundcloud.
Speaking of freebies, AU have just set up a mailing list and in return for your email address they will give you a free download of single B-side 'under/Epic (feat. Colin Stetson)'. What are you waiting for? Hop over to their Bandcamp now!
