Crocodiles release Endless Flowers on Frenchkiss, freeze asses off on spring tour

Crocodiles have emerged once more from the lo-fi depths of San Diego’s psychedelic swamp with a new album and a string of spring dates across North America. The band is currently knees deep in the wintry Northland, having kicked off the tour about a week ago with an inaugural date at Brighton Music Hall in Boston. After a brief dip into Canada, they’ll continue on through the US in March. On the schedule is a stop at the Frenchkiss Records showcase at South by Southwest, plus a couple headlining dates in New York come April.

Core members Brandon Welchez (vocals, guitar) and Charles Rowell (guitar) have come along way since the band’s inception in 2008. The latest incarnation of the band features Marco Gonzalez (bass), Anna Schulte (drums), and Robin Eisenberg (keyboards), both on the current tour and on the band’s forthcoming album, Endless Flowers. The album comes out on June 5 via Frenchkiss. Written by Welchez and Rowell in the winter of 2011, Flowers was recorded by the full band last summer in that gloomy musicians’ paradise, Berlin. This is Crocodiles’ third full-length album, coming after 2010’s Sleep Forever (TMT Review).
