She & Him, the musical duo of M. Ward and Zooey Deschanel, will be playing their final shows of 2010 this fall, headlining select cities for the very first time. Following a smattering of sold out dates on the East Coast and Midwest this summer, including a glorious show at Chicago’s Millennium Park for over 15,000 people, these will be She & Him’s only Pacific Northwest dates this year. Tickets for these shows are available now.
She & Him released Volume Two to widespread acclaim this spring. The album, which has been one of the most lauded of 2010, is filled with infectious choruses and sunny harmonies that were written by Zooey and produced by M.Ward. The band’s performances at Coachella, Bonnaroo and most recently at the prestigious Hollywood Bowl, have been some of the summer’s most incredible performances, and their lovely tunes will be absolutely dazzling when they hit the West Coast this fall.
The band recently released the video for second single “Thieves.” Directed by Norwood Cheek, the video is a brilliant homage to black and white silent films of the 20’s, reflecting all of the subtle charm and melancholy of the song itself. A limited edition 7-inch for “Thieves,” backed by the vinyl-only bonus track “I Knew It Would Happen This Way,” will be released on August 31. Pre-order your “Thieves” b/w “I Knew It Would Happen This Way” now in the Merge store.
