The genre-defying ensemble Devotchka announce their return today with the new song “Straight Shot” from This Night Falls Forever, their August 24 album release on Concord Records. In addition, they share a string of tour dates for the fall season throughout the U.S. and Europe.
“Straight Shot” is the first track on the new album; a rhythmic and urgent opener for the group’s resurgence. “This song is like a moonlit swim through heartbreak, in a sea of ghosts from your past,” Devotchka frontman Nick Urata says. “When you realize the old neighborhood may be gone forever, but you can carry it with you through the darkest of days.”
After scoring films, TV, musicals, ballets, and performing with symphony orchestras,Devotchka emerge from the studio with their sixth full-length album, featuring 11 songs that defy categorization. These songs straddle the line between the epic and the intimate. Devotchka have garnered much praise and attention for blurring the lines of genre and cultural influence, and with this release we can clearly see they have slowly carved their own unique space in the modern musical landscape. Urata’s soaring vocal croon and poetic lyrics are back in full force. His voice travels atop ambitious film noir orchestras and live vintage voodoo rock combos.
This Night Falls Forever is scheduled for release on August 24, 2018 via Concord Records. Available on vinyl, CD and digital. Pre-order for This Night Falls Forever begins today, July 13, 2018, via http://found.ee/DeVotchKa_ThisNightFallsForever. Additional tour details will be announced on July 18, 2018.
