The Staves to Tour the US Again
Wed, 08 Feb 2012 10:40:27
Following their immensely successful US tour as support to The Civil Wars, Atlantic recording group The Staves are pleased to announce plans for another US tour. The UK-based sibling trio will be among the acts featured on "The Austin to Boston Tour," presented by the acclaimed artist-led collective, Communion.
"The Austin to Boston Tour" – which also features Ben Howard, Nathaniel Rateliff, and Bear's Den – will see The Staves and their fellow touring artists traveling the country in a fleet of vintage VW Camper Vans. The artists will be accompanied on the trek by filmmaker Marcus Haney, who will capture the tour's essence with daily interviews, travelogues, and live performance footage. For more, please go here.
The sisters who make up The Staves - Emily, Jessica, and Camilla Staveley-Taylor – are on the verge. The Staves are slated to release their eagerly awaited debut album later in the year. The as-yet-untitled collection is co-produced by the legendary Glyn Johns (The Who, Led Zeppelin, The Rolling Stones) and Ethan Johns (Kings of Leon, Laura Marling, Paolo Nutini), marking the first time father and son have shared production credits. In the meantime, fans signing up for The Staves' newsletter will receive two exclusive downloads, recorded live at London's Cecil Sharp House.
