Los Angeles, CA – The Olms, a new band featuring Pete Yorn and J.D. King, have announced a series of tour dates in support of their self-titled debut album set for release on June 4th on Harvest Records.  In addition to their first performances in Los Angeles and New York, they will make stops in Asbury Park, Philadelphia, Chicago, Boston and Washington, D.C.  The Olms will also perform as part of the Live From Home benefit concert series at the Housing Works Bookstore Cafe, a not-for-profit organization providing healthcare, housing, advocacy and other services to homeless and formerly homeless people with HIV and AIDS, on June 7th.  Complete tour dates and venues are listed below.

The band has created videos for 2 of the songs on the new album, utilizing a depth of footage they shot themselves using Super 8, 16mm film and iPhones. “Wanna Feel It,” the first video from the album also features artwork hand crafted by J.D. King. “On the Line” will be exclusively premiered on on Tuesday, April 30.

After a seven-year friendship, Pete Yorn and J.D. King stepped into King’s Southern California home studio for a meeting of the musical minds.  The results:  a brand new band and a familiar but unique style all their own.  The Olms self-titled debut release features a free-wheeling sound, which melds folk, rock, country rock, and Brit-pop, thanks to jangly acoustic guitar, wistful melodies, radiant harmonies, and unexpected instrumental flourishes.  Songs like the strummy “Wanna Feel It” and “Someone Else’ Girl” glow with a lush ’60’s vibe, while the honkey-tonk-ish “On The Line” shows the duo’s harder-rocking side with hints of psychedelic organ.

Tickets will go on sale on Friday, May 3 at 10am local time.
