Quilt announce European tour dates

Quilt are pleased to announce they will be touring the UK and Europe this April in support of their sophomore LP Held in Splendor - due for release on February 17 via Mexican Summer.

Held in Splendor is an audacious pop-rock record with cascading harmonies and billowing textures, punchy rhythms and snarled guitars, wonderful depth and resplendent peaks. ‘Mary Mountain’ takes hazy Summer of Love memories on a mid-summer road trip in a gleaming muscle car. ‘Tired & Buttered’ invites Booker T over for an energy-addled jam in the garage. ‘The Hollow’ twinkles like Fleetwood Mac and Galaxie 500, with sweet singing backed by the lap steel sighs of young acoustic guitar star and longtime Quilt pal Daniel Bachman. ‘Held in Splendor’ is an album of personal poetry and public questions, confessions and aspirations—really, these 13 tracks are their own playground, brimming with the sort of unapologetic energy and wonder that turns simple songs into absolute anthems.

“We’re really attracted to records where each song has its own voice. We wanted to focus on what each song had to say,” Butler explains. “Having the studio, demoing the songs and knowing each other better as musicians helped make that happen. That was a really exciting process for us.”

Mexican Summer will release Held In Splendor through digital, CD and vinyl formats.
