KURT VILE – new album and national tour

Weeks of speculation come to an end as details of the new Kurt Vile album were finally confirmed: One of the most critically and commercially acclaimed artists of the last decade will release Bottle It In on Friday 12 October via Matador Records / Remote Control

Today’s announcement is accompanied by the release of a new song titled ‘Bassackwards’, which follows previously released Bottle It In single, ‘Loading Zones’, an ode to the parking challenges in Vile’s native Philadelphia, described alternately as “Vile at his comforting, shaggy best” (The Guardian), and an “ambiguous rumination on small town life” (MOJO). The epic, loping ‘Bassackwards’ is the album’s beating heart and Vile’s most compelling evocation of how he sees the world: “I was on the ground circa Planet Earth, but out of sorts,” he sings over a gently psychedelic bed of backmasked guitars. “But I snapped back, baby, just in time to jot it down.”

Vile will hit the road in Australia in April 2019 with support from RVG. Catch Kurt Vile and the Violators perform shows in Sydney, Wollongong, Canberra, Melbourne, Adelaide, Perth and Byron Bay Bluesfest. Presales open today at 1pm AEST. Full tour details and ticket links below.
