The Low Anthem have been gaining a lot of buzz lately after being tagged to open for Ray LaMontagne and Elvis Perkins on back to back April tours. Now, on the heels of the announcement they've been asked to play this year's Bonnaroo festival, the homegrown, roots-rock trio will be releasing an album in June off of their new label.
Oh My God, Charlie Darwin, which was originally released by the band independently, will be re-released of off Nonesuch Records on June 9. This will mark the band's first album release with the label, whom they just recently signed with. The band will also be touring the East Coast in promotion for the record, making a stop in Manchester, Tennessee for Bonnaroo and a Bowery, NYC date around the release.
The first run copies of Oh My God, Charlie Darwin will get some extra special treatment from The Low Anthem. The exclusive album copies will be made with some extra TLC, as they will be hand pained and silk-screened. We're going to call heads on this one, and say The Low Anthem is a band to watch after this album is re-released in June.
