The Head and The Heart: Let’s Be Still

Seattle’s The Head And The Heart will release Let’s Be Still, their sophomore album, on October 15 via Sub Pop. In support of the upcoming release, the band has announced a 22-date headlining North American tour with support from Thao and the Get Down Stay Down as well as Quiet Life. Pre-sale begins tomorrow, Tuesday July 23. Complete tour dates below.

“There is a certain level of confidence gained from having such an amazing fan base,” says group member Jonathan Russell. “You start to trust yourself more. When we were busking, we were filling so much space to keep the listener from walking away. Now we are in a very different situation.”

Over the past few years, ideas began to form for the band’s second album, imbued with the experiences of traveling the world and cultivating a festival-type audience. Let’s Be Still is described as “a snapshot of a band that didn’t exist just four short years ago.” The album was recorded at Seattle’s Studio Litho with assistance from prior production collaborator Shawn Simmons. Later, the band traversed the country to mix the album in Bridgeport, Conn., with Peter Katis, whose recent credits include Trey Anastasio, The National and Dispatch.
