The Antlers’ Hospice to be reissued on march 8 via frenchkiss records / transgressive
Release celebrates the lp’s 10th anniversary
Band to play first shows since 2015
The Antlers are excited to announce the forthcoming vinyl reissue of their seminal album Hospice on March 8 via Frenchkiss Records / Transgressive. The reissue will mark a decade since the band first released the album that Robin Hilton @ NPR called “one of the most beautiful and moving works I’ve heard in a long, long time. Just astonishing.”
To celebrate the reissue, The Antlers will be performing the album in full at a handful of intimate shows in the US and Europe with dates kicking off March 19 in Seattle, WA. They play the Masonic Lodge at Hollywood Forever on March 23 and close out the US leg with two shows at Brooklyn’s First Unitarian Church on March 30 and 31. The dates mark the first the band have played together since 2015. All dates are listed below.
The Antlers’ Peter Silberman states: We’re reissuing the Hospice LP on March 8th, 2019, in honor of its tenth anniversary. It will be newly pressed on double white vinyl, with deluxe artwork and packaging courtesy of the album’s original artist, Zan Goodman.
We’ll be playing a limited number of acoustic shows to celebrate, too. But it will be a bit different this time as the core band now consists of myself and drummer Michael Lerner— longtime multi-instrumentalist Darby Cicci is no longer with the band.
Though we’ve pared down for the time being, these shows will feature some old friends and guests, and together we’ll perform Hospice in its entirety.
We’re truly looking forward to revisiting these old songs in a new light.
In their 13 year history The Antlers have released 5 full-length albums. Their most recent was 2014’s Familiars. In 2017 Peter Silberman released his first solo album entitled Impermanence on Anti- Records / Transgressive.
