Cigarettes After Sex share new previously unheard single 'Crush': Listen
The band also announced tour dates in the fall in support of Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds and The National. Full schedule below
Cigarettes After Sex have shared a brand new standalone single entitled ‘Crush’ to celebrate the one year anniversary of their self-titled debut LP.
A grizzly, sensual slow-burner that fits perfectly with the rest of the El Paso-based ambient-pop spearheads, 'Crush' was written and recorded alongside the tracks on the self-titled debut album but had been kept under wraps until now.
"I wanna line my walls with photographs you sent / Of you lying in your swimsuit on the bed," croons frontman Greg Gonzalez over the dreamy, shimmering, twin acoustic and electric riff in the background. It's a song of eternal pining and desire that could very well come across as a moody teenage serenade. But in the hands of Cigarettes After Sex and with the husky, hypnotic vocals of Gonzalez, the song transforms into a bittersweet ode that's the perfect choice to kick-off a romantic evening's playlist.
This Autumn, Cigarettes After Sex will play a limited run of live dates with Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds, including Barclays Center in Brooklyn and The Forum in LA. They will also perform alongside The National, Jason Isbell and more at Forrest Hills Stadium in late September. These dates follow the band’s recent sold-out headline show at Brixton Academy in London and a busy summer of European festivals.
Check out the full itinerary below.
‘Cigarettes After Sex’, the self-titled debut LP is out now on Partisan Records. You can stream/download the album here.
