Chicago’s The Hush Sound release their first new music in FIVE years, with a two song bundle out today via www.thehushsound.org/supportourmusic. To help get the word out there about the new music and also let fans know about a spring US headlining tour with Hockey, the band partnered with The AV Club yesterday who premiered “Not A Stranger.” In addition, the band revealed their second new song “Scavengers” this morning via Rhapsody! The songs will also be available for purchase as a limited edition 7″ along the band’s spring tour.
New music from The Hush Sound (Greta Morgan, Bob Morris, Chris Faller, and Darren Wilson) offers all of the charm and brightness that brought them success in the past, this time with a more mature and refined sound. The band started writing together again last summer and hit the road in the fall of 2012 for a handful of Midwest and East Coast dates before heading into the studio to work on recording new material. They tapped old friend Sam Farrar (Phantom Planet/Maroon 5) to produce the tracks. 2013 found The Hush Sound hitting the road again, making their way down to SXSW for several packed shows after a seven year absence. The West Coast and Southwest run surrounding their appearances in Austin was met with equal excitement. Coast to coast fans showed up en masse to welcome The Hush Sound back, selling out NYC’s Highline Ballroom, Chicago’s House of Blues, and Los Angeles’ Troubadour along the way.
They already have a full US tour locked in for the spring with their friends in Hockey joining them for the entire run. The run begins at New York City’s Webster Hall on May 14th and winds down the Eastern seaboard and through the Midwest before a hometown show at Chicago’s Metro on June 4th. The tour wraps up in Cleveland at Grog Shop on June 8th.
