Elvis Perkins' dark, yet achingly beautiful debut album Ash Wednesday now seems just an ice-breaker for his eponymous sophomore follow-up. Perkins' adds the company of his touring band (Elvis Perkins in Dearland) and together they have created an album that will most assuredly be included in a number of year-end "Best of" lists before all is said and done. And while both the darkness and the beauty remain intact on the new record, this time around we are also given moments that can only be best described as celebratory dirges of the spirit. You can check out his new video here.
Elvis Perkins in Dearland, Thursday April 23rd, 10PM at the Iron Horse. Tickets Here.
