OLA PODRIDA announce a Spring US Tour  in support of their great new album GHOSTS GO BLIND, out April 30 (Western Vinyl)  After releasing two highly acclaimed solo bedroom recordings and multiple soundtracks, and sharing stages with She and Him, Beach House, Fleet Foxes and Explosions in the Sky, soundtracker David Wingo returns as Ola Podrida with a new Austin-based band – Colin Swietek, David Hobizal, and Matt Clark – ready to hit the road.  Ola Podrida’s first tour in three years kicks off with a release show in Austin with …Trail of Dead on May 4, will head to the East Coast for May shows, with West Coast shows tba for June.  Ola Podrida will be showcasing new songs from Ghosts Go Blind as well as the breakout debut Ola Podrida and its heralded follow up Belly Of The Lion.

Ghosts Go Blind was recorded live to tape by the full band at Big Orange studios in Austin.  While the songs retain the intimacy of Wingo’s previous efforts and his signature cinematic lyrical style, the new band and the energy of the live recording gives Ghosts Go Blind a dynamic range not found in the earlier recordings.  SPIN.com calls it “an electric, often heartbreaking indie-rock record.”
