We're thrilled to announce today's release from The Antlers, a limited edition vinyl reissue of their seminal album Hospice on French Kiss Records / Transgressive. The reissue marks a decade since the band first released the album that Robin Hilton at NPR called "one of the most beautiful and moving works I've heard in a long, long time. Just astonishing."
To celebrate the reissue, The Antlers will be performing the album in full at a handful of intimate shows in the US and Europe with dates kicking off March 19 in Seattle, WA. The dates mark the first the band have played together since 2015. Most shows are now sold out, but you can get remaining tickets here.
The Antlers’ Peter Silberman states: ''We’re reissuing the Hospice LP on March 8th, 2019, in honour of its tenth anniversary. It will be newly pressed on double white vinyl, with deluxe artwork and packaging courtesy of the album’s original artist, Zan Goodman. We’ll be playing a limited number of acoustic shows to celebrate, too. But it will be a bit different this time as the core band now consists of myself and drummer Michael Lerner— longtime multi-instrumentalist Darby Cicci is no longer with the band. Though we’ve pared down for the time being, these shows will feature some old friends and guests, and together we’ll perform Hospice in its entirety. We’re truly looking forward to revisiting these old songs in a new light.''
