EISLEY will launch a six-week U.S. headlining tour in late April, supporting their third album, THE VALLEY (Equal Vision Records). The TURNING TIDES TOUR kicks off April 26 in Atlanta, and the run of club dates will also include a set at The Bamboozle Festival in East Rutherford, New Jersey, on May 1 and a headlining slot at Bled Fest in Grand Rapids, Michigan, on May 28. See below for a complete list of dates.

THE VALLEY debuts this week at #75 on the Billboard 200 Current Albums chart and also hit #5 on Amazon MP3’s Top 10 Album Chart for the week and #3 on Amazon’s New Albums chart.

Reviews of the album have been universally positive. The Big Takeover has already declared it “one of the best albums of 2011,” while Creative Loafing Tampa said, “Eisley comes off as more orchestrated, more mature, and more inspiring than ever.” Under The Radar said that “the tunes are imminently enjoyable and the interplay among the DuPrees’ voices is always thrilling.” The Boston Globe wrote, “In almost every Eisley song, there’s something — a turn of phrase or a curl of the melody or a shift of the chords — that doesn’t go quite where you’d expect it to. [There’s a] sense of shining a light into corners to which most acts don’t bother paying attention.” And AbsolutePunk.net said, “Even when I write that ‘The Valley’ is the band’s best album yet, it still feels like a huge understatement – like I’m not giving the album enough credit. Just believe this: ‘The Valley’ is an album that will stick with you.”

Tigerwine 2020

A Disparate Vintage

On Tigerwine's latest, 'Nothing is for You,' vocalist and lyricist Trobee departs from the band's last effort as a concept record to write about an array subjects. Notably, Trobee tackles his evolution from rigid belief system to an acceptance and understanding of other ideas: "Through touring and becoming close with those very people I was taught to be afraid of, I realized how untrue it all is."

Comrades 2020

Becoming Comrades

The trio of Comrades – husband and wife Joe and Laura McElroy alongside drummer John Gaskil – is used to living in a van and touring the country. Now, their new normal has provided them with a moment to "be adults" for once. We recently sat down with the McElroys to talk more about the spiritual reality within life, how soon they'll be able to release new music, and how koalas are their new normal.

Between the White Noise

My Epic's last full-length album came out in 2013; despite a number of EPs along the way, the band's dedication to their craft, lyrical approach, and unyielding approach to let the music come naturally has made them critical darlings. Now, they're learning to interact and feed a rabid fanbase in between albums and in a new normal.
