Low Plans 2005 Tourdates and new Album

Duluth, MN trio Low make their debut with Sub Pop this January with the release of their 7th LP, The Great Destroyer (named after me, no doubt). Produced by the multi-talented Dave Fridmann (Flaming Lips, Delgados, Mercury Rev), the album is purported to be the band’s “most agressive” yet — which could mean one or two songs may actually have a tempo. The album’s first single, “Monkey,” is avaliable now as an iTunes exclusive for its iTunes Indie Sampler 3. Also available at iTunes is Low’s “Just like Christmas,” which is probably a song about dialectical materialism. In celebration of the new, “aggressive,” David Fridmann-produced, January Sub Pop-released, first single “Monkey”-sportin’ album, Low has added several U.S. dates to their hectic winter schedule, including two nights at NYC’s famed Bowery Ballroom and a one-night-stand at Ohio State’s beautiful Wexner Center for the Performing Arts in February. Perhaps intentionally, Low also enables TMT the chance of providing the very first 2005 tourdates. How fucking exciting. Guitarist Alan Sparhawk recently played a handful of U.S. solo shows, and though we have no concrete evidence, we assume he later joined the rest of the band for a tour of Spain that concluded last night. They have one more show scheduled for the year, and TMT predicts it’ll be at Scala in London, UK. (tinymixedtapes)
