Tyler, Texas quintet Eisley will kick off their seven-week “Over the River and Through the Wood Tour” on October 9 in Lake Charles, Louisiana. The run will circle the U.S., first hitting the Southeast, then East Coast, Midwest and West Coast before cycling back to North Texas for a final date in Dallas on November 27. Ives The Band and Christie DuPree — younger sister of Eisley’s Chauntelle, Sherri, Stacy and Weston DuPree, and cousin of bassist Garron DuPree — will support all dates.
Eisley are currently finalizing plans to release their long-awaited third LP, following their separation from longtime label Warner/Reprise earlier this year. More details on label and release date will be announced in the coming weeks. Eisley’s latest LP release was 2007’s “Combinations,” followed by the “Fire Kites” digital EP last year. Eisley singer/guitarist Sherri DuPree recently posted a solo version of Neutral Milk Hotel’s “Two-Headed Boy, Pt. 2,” which is available from the Dallas Observer’s website: http://bit.ly/aDcjPQ
