After an action-packed trip to SXSW, Mount Moriah are currently on tour in support of their critically-acclaimed sophomore album Miracle Temple.
Today, they have announced even more dates beginning June 13 in Pittsburgh. A full list of tour dates is below including spring dates with labelmates Telekinesis.
Building on 2011's self-titled release, Miracle Temple boasts fuller arrangements, replete with forceful vocals and lyrics that read like prize-winning poetry. The instrumentation’s more soulful, the choruses more rambunctious, and the band’s vision of the South is even more intricate — and conflicted — than it was before. No stone goes unturned: whether it’s meditations on gender or reminisces of ex-lovers, Miracle Temple supplies both eloquence & rock ‘n’ roll in abundance.
Mount Moriah was chosen as one of SPIN’s 5 Best New Artists and Popmatters deems Miracle Temple “a lush, deeply layered, sunburst of a record.” Other positive reviews can be found at Pitchfork, the A.V. Club, American Songwriter, MTV Hive and more! Also, watch their stripped down performance of "Bright Light" for WFUV at Austin's famous Hotel San Jose & their visit to WBEZ Chicago's Afternoon Shift. And, the lovely video for "Bright Light" is on YouTube.
Miracle Temple is available now on CD, LP and digital download in the Merge store. Also, available at your local record store, at iTunes, Amazon, Spotify & Rdio.
