Newsletter from Tennis to their fans
“A lot of news this week. We’re in the middle of a 14 hour drive from Denver to start our December tour and it’s hard to type while driving so please excuse type-o’s. Tomorrow, our first single will be available in stores in the US and the UK. The special, limited blue 7” will be out from Forrest Family and you can purchase here.
If you’re not able to get your hands on the vinyl, the single is also available digitally in theUS and UK on iTunes and other retailers from Fat Possum. We are really happy to announce that All Tomorrow’s Parties will be releasing Young & Old in the UK, Europe, and Australia in February. We love them and are so happy to have them as our partners on this record.
Check out RollingStone.com today for the debut of our video for Deep in the Woods.
Hope to see you soon…if not on this tour then soon after!”
Okay, I am hella pissed that I can’t see them play on December 14th (two days after finals, so academics won’t hinder me). However, there is the problem of being only 19…and that ain’t getting me into a 21 and over venue like the Crocodile. Sigh, another day then. Forget the legal purchase and consumption of alcohol when I’m 21, I’m going to hit up as many concerts as possible!
Meanwhile, check out the new video “Deep in the Woods”
Try not to dwell on the fact that the trash bag being dragged across a floor in the opening image of Tennis’ new video seems to be leaking blood. The band’s sweet girl-group sound only enhances the creepy David Lynch-ian feel of the video for “Deep in the Woods,” a bonus track from the band’s new single, which is available today on Forest Family Records. (The Denver group’s next album, featuring production help from the Black Keys’ Patrick Carney, comes out in February on Fat Possum.) Singer Alaina Moore explains that “Deep in the Woods” is based on Shirley Jackson’s novel “We Have Always Lived in a Castle.” “It is the story of two sisters, devoted to each other to an extent that borders on mania,” she says.Bonus!
