Crystal Stilts prep new album and fall tour with Deerhunter, bring hot jams to a desperate nation

The heat descended heavily across the land. The townspeople, clad all in black and wearing very fashionable sunglasses, languished in the sun, praying for relief, for an autumnal breeze, for a cool drink from the deep well of minor-key rock ‘n’ roll music. Then, what, ho? A trumpet sounded from the deepest reaches of the internet town square. An official announcement from the castle of Sacred Bones!

And so it was, gentlefolk of the not-so-merry kingdom of Postpunklandia, that a declaration rang out across the land: Crystal Stilts have a new album called Nature Noir, and it’s out September 17 via — naturally — Sacred Bones! Listen to first single “Star Crawl” NOW:

Formed in 2003, in the magical land known as New York City, Crystal Stilts is comprised of master songsmiths Brad Hargett (vocals), JB Townsend (guitar), Andy Adler (bass), Keegan Cooke (drums), and Kyle Forester (keyboards). Nature Noir is the band’s third studio LP, following up 2011’s In Love With Oblivion (TMT Review). To celebrate, they’ll be saddling their finest unicorns and touring this great nation of ours with Deerhunter in the fall.
