Today, Shout Out Louds have shared “Illusions” a new song from their highly anticipated new album Optica which will be in stores later this month. Also, Shout Out Louds have announced new US shows in May including a New York show as well as an appearance at the Sasquatch Festival.
The Line of Best Fit describes the song, “‘Illusions’ is vintage Shout Out Louds with razor-edged guitar hooks and cyclical drum patterns providing the rhythmic thrust for Adam Olenius’ sweet croon to float over; although the unashamedly up tempo jangles are tempered by multi-instrumentalist Bebban Stenborg’s sensitive, aching backing vocals.”
Shout Out Louds will soon hit the road for worldwide touring including a multitude of shows at this year’s SXSW. Those performances will be announced soon. The band’s first show in support of Optica will take place in Brooklyn, NY, at the Music Hall of Wiliamsburg on March 11, and they have confirmed a full stateside tour for May 2013, beginning May 7 in Washington, DC. They have also added a confirmed appearance at the Sasquatch Festival as well as a headlining date at New York’s Webster Hall.
Pre-order Optica on CD or LP now in the Merge store.
