O’Brother Announce Co-Headlining US Tour with Junius in February and March 2012;

January 10th CD Release Set for Debut Album Garden Window & Hometown Release Show Set for January 6th at the Masquerade in Atlanta, GA

Atlanta based O’Brother are excited to announce a co-headlining tour with Junius kicking off at DC9 in Washington, DC on February 16th and wrapping up at Warehouse Live Studio in Houston, TX on March 11th.  The band will be hitting the road in support of the January 10th CD release of their debut album Garden Window (Triple Crown Records/Favorite Gentlemen) and before heading out with Junius, O’Brother is set to headline a hometown release show at the Masquerade in Atlanta, GA on January 6th.

The 2012 tour comes after nearly six months on the road for O’Brother where they shared the stage with Manchester Orchestra (whose Andy Hull and Robert McDowell produced Garden Window), Cage the Elephant, The Dear Hunter, and Thrice.  These tour dates gave the band a chance to play their new songs live while the press was delving into the album.  Early write ups have been nothing short of amazing with Decibel saying that “If Radiohead’s Thom Yorke cut a record with the Melvins (never say never…), it’d probably sound a lot like this,” Alternative Press declaring “…the best song Queens Of The Stone Age never wrote (‘Lo’),”and Drum describing the album as “the perfect late-autumn soundtrack.”

O’Brother is quickly becoming known for their powerful and dynamic rock sound both recorded and live.  They will be celebrating the January 10th CD release of their debut album Garden Window with a special hometown record release show at The Masquerade on January 6th.  Then February 16th they hit the road for their co-headlining tour with Junius that will take them through mid March.   Pre-order Garden Window at http://obrother.cinderblock.com/.

And in case you haven’t listened to the record, here’s what the press has been saying:

(Request your copy of Garden Window from Stunt Company)

“If Radiohead’s Thom Yorke cut a record with the Melvins (never say never…), it’d probably sound a lot like this…hypnotic, weird and heavy as fuck.” – Decibel

“…the aggression of Deftones and Torche, soaring guitars of Britain’s Oceansize, a hopefulness in line with Sigur Rós, and an attempt at the emotional depth possessed by Radiohead and Thom Yorke.” – Consequence of Sound

Garden Window is the perfect late-autumn soundtrack.” – DRUM

“A gem.” – AOL Noisecreep

“Whether O’Brother’s thoughtful yet urgent search is delivered through the best song Queens Of The Stone Age never wrote (“Lo”), tortured, howling choruses only Tool or Isis could exact (“Sputnik,” “Machines Part I”)…” – Alternative Press

“Immediately blown away.” – LA Music Blog

“Complete with tribal drums, indiscernible screams at times and searing guitar riffs, the album is the epitome of the end of days in musical form. And it couldn’t sound better.” – Mind Equals Blown

“Garden Window is the definition of a perfect follow up. Dramatic, hard-hitting, and surprisingly addicting, Garden Window has all the makings for an album that will definitely stick with you into the next year, and longer.” – Muzik Dizcovery

“In a (permissible) word: Garden Window is a behemoth.” – The Music the Message

“Fantastically brooding and mysterious.” – Alter the Press

“Ridiculously good; thought provoking harrowing and intelligent.” – Kill Hipsters

“Emotional, sweeping, beautiful, and edgy.” – Greg’s Musik Haus

“Polished without losing any of the dirt and grime that makes this collection of songs so potent.” – Latest Disgrace

“One bite into Garden Window and you’re hooked.” – The Tartan

“Combining their haunting vocals and heavy sounds to produce a powerful rock record.” – Dig Boston

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."

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.
