Wye Oak have announced summer tour dates, including an opening slot for the Dirty Projectors as well as festival appearances at Celebrate Brooklyn!, the Forecastle Festival, and the Hopscotch Festival.
In addition to opening for the Dirty Projectors, Jenn will join the band when they perform on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon on June 19!
Jenn and Andy will debut new material at these shows, and have recorded a new song exclusively for Adult Swim. Adult Swim will premiere the new Wye Oak song as part of their new Adult Swim Singles Program. This highly-anticipated program kicks off on June 18, and will include a wide range of all new free music from a diverse lineup of respected artists. The brand new Wye Oak song will be available exclusively at AdultSwim.com/singles beginning July 9.
Civilian topped the list of the A.V. Club’s best music of 2011 and appeared on year-end lists from NPR, Paste Magazine, Magnet Magazine, and more. Civilian is available on CD, LP and digital download now in the Merge store.
