Pacific Northwesterners: We are playing “Shape Shifter” and two holiday songs with Laura Gibson and Portland Cello Project Dec 20th at The Schnitz as a part of their Winter Sweater Spectacular. Get your tickets!
Today we are premiering the official video for “America” on Vevo, directed by Whitey McConnaughy. First a viewer discretion advisory: the video is meant for mature audiences. Please go watch it, and if it provokes you, please share it with others.
Here’s a video the band shot in between rehearsals. We are really looking forward to the first leg of tour!
BOSTON, NYC, PHILLY, VIENNA VA, PITTSBURG, ST. LOUIS, CHICAGO HERE WE COME! (Ticket links on the sidebar!)
Hooray! Warp and Weft is here today. Find it at your local shop, your favorite digital retailer, or at Laura’s own Raven Marching Band Shop. (Psst: We have a handful of signed copies left — first come first served.)
Now, those of you who have a copy in your hands, why not put your fingers to work while you bask in the soundscape? Each CD and LP comes with a custom pkrinted origami paper. Laura is willing to pledge money to The Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence for each origami crane photographed with its creator, uploaded to her Facebook page. For details, watch this video:

Recorded while Veirs was pregnant, this forthcoming album was definitely influenced by motherhood, even on the more painful songs…”
