Antlers Sign To Frenchkiss, To Remaster & Re-Release Hospice + Tour

A month after self-releasing his fantastic Hospice LP, we spoke to Peter Silberman, the brainchild of The Antlers, from his bedroom in Brooklyn. Now he gets to do it all over again (not the interview, releasing Hospice), only this time with a label to help him out.

Silberman was soft-spoken and modest regarding his band’s influx of media attention from the likes of NPR, The Wall Street Journal and Pitchfork. The Tripwire's Michael Cranston was not: “But the album is, like, so fucking great.” Turns out the people at Frenchkiss agree with Michael, and have decided to give the album a once-over and new release date of August 18. Here's hoping the remastering doesn't affect the albums greatness, but at least while we're waiting to hear Hospice in its new duds, we can see them live on tour with Au Revoir Simone and Cotton Jones.
