The Low Anthem Confirm Spring Tour Dates

The Low Anthem embark on a short winter tour this week and they'll be back in the States this spring for support slots with Iron & Wine and a slew of newly-confirmed headlining dates, including a special show at the Pasta Sauce Factory in Central Falls, RI, where they recorded most of their stunning new album 'Smart Flesh,' out yesterday via Nonesuch.

The New York Times recently caught up with the band at the Pasta Sauce Factory for an Arts & Leisure feature that ran this past Sunday. Writer David Carr described the album as "sticky and gorgeous" and said "it is full of hisses and noises framing close harmonies and spare, idiosyncratic instrumentation, with a pervasive sense of elegy." The Times also debuted the video for rocker 'Boeing 737.'

This week's release of 'Smart Flesh' has been met with extensive critical praise. In a 4 star Rolling Stone review David Fricke said "it's as if the Band stripped their prairie-gothic majesty down to Tom Waits' early barfly essentials." The BBC said "Boeing 737 is a huge, stomping anthem that sounds like Bob Dylan fronting Arcade Fire" while USA Today described the album as "superb" and the LA Times called it "a gorgeous, inventively arranged set of reverb-rich roots ballads."
