Woods Confirm Summer Dates
Woods have confirmed their summer plans. After a May European tour that includes stops at festivals like The Great Escape and Primavera Sound, the group will swing back through North America for a series of headlining dates. Parquet Courts will support the band throughout most of their summer run.
On July 9, the band will also release a new single in conjunction with the tour. The single features both a re-recording of “Be All Be Easy” and a cover of The Kinks’ “God’s Children.” These songs are a farewell for the band’s longtime studio, homepage and onetime home, Rear House.
“Be All Be Easy,” originally featured on 2011’s Sun and Shade, was re-recorded to capture the live form that’s taken shape since its original release. Both are the first to feature new drummer, Aaron Neveu.
