Bon Iver Unveils New Video for "Towers," Announces Tour Dates

Bon Iver have released a new video for “Towers” (available below), the third video to come off 2011’s Bon Iver. Directed by NABIL, who also created the “Holocene” video, the footage depicts an elderly man making his way through the rugged, woodland setting before setting out to sea on a small boat. A “Towers” 12” and digital single will be out on March 6th via Jagjaguwar with the John Prine cover “Bruised Orange (Chain of Sorrow)” as the b-side.

In addition, Bon Iver have also announced a series of West Coast dates this spring, including a pair of dates with Feist. See below for the full itinerary.

Since when does Bon Iver qualify as a jamband?

As far as lineups go Glastonbury and Sasquatch are top notch, but for olvarel atmosphere Shambhala can’t be beat. Simply put it’s 10 000 of the most friendly welcoming people coming together at (in my opinion) the coolest location possible for a festival deep in the forest with great stages and the best lights and sound and the COOLEST costumes ever! It’s really the people that make the festival what it is though, everyone puts so much effort in to their costumes, I’ve seen stuff there I didn’t think was possible!
