Mount Moriah have released “Younger Days” the first track from Miracle Temple on Pitchfork.com, and have announced their first run of tour dates this spring.
Fiercely contemporary yet rich with classic influences, Mount Moriah’s Miracle Temple sports bigger arrangements, louder guitars, bolder vocals, and more soulful rhythms than their acclaimed self-titled debut. Through their artful personal storytelling, the band develops a piercing portrait of a “New South” where progressive traditions are still fitfully breaking free from conservative ones. Mount Moriah’s cathartic vision for their home and themselves is writ large in their lovingly critical negotiation with romantic, political, and gender identities; geographical perspective; confrontation and forgiveness.
Miracle Temple is available for pre-order now in the Merge store on CD and LP. Also, throughout the holiday season, LP pre-orders will receive a free Merge slipmat. Mount Moriah’s self-titled debut is now available on LP in the Merge store as well. Don’t forget . . . the Merge Holiday Code works on pre-orders, too!
