Wye Oak extend spring "Civilian" tour

Wye Oak extend spring

Wye Oak are gearing up for the release of their highly anticipated third album Civilian with tour dates both here and abroad. Jenn & Andy just finished a run of dates opening for The Decemberists; a pairing that had Time Out NY wondering if "'King' Meloy was ceding ground to a queen of sorts, Jenn Wasner."

Civilian has made the "most-anticipated" lists from NPR who called it "blustery and mysterious" and The AV Club who wrote that the title-track made a "whole album's worth seem very enticing indeed."

See live video from Wye Oak's "secret" show during the recent blizzard in NYC, and download the title track “Civilian.”

Civilian is available for pre-order on CD and LP in the Merge store. Also in the Merge store, My Neighbor / My Creator is available again on CD (this time in green!) and digital download.
