The Antlers Offer Up Remastered MP3, Frightened Rabbit Dates

Brooklyn indie rock dramatists The Antlers self-released the gut-wrenching "Hospice" – a record about caring for the terminally ill, even when they’re mentally abusive – earlier this year. On the strength of high praise from the folks at Pitchfork, and NPR, who named the record one of the young year’s finest, New York’s Frenchkiss Records scooped the band up and quickly set an official, widespread release for the album. Re-mastered, and supported by a recently-announced run of dates with Au Revoir Simone, "Hospice" is set for digital release on June 23rd, and physical release on August 18th. Last week, the band offered up “Two,” the first remastered taste from the record, in Pitchfork’s Forkcast. And, fresh off the ARS touring announcement, a new run of dates with Scottish troubadours Frightened Rabbit has been revealed for July.
