2016 has been a busy year for Dear Blanca. Between opening gigs for Bernie Sanders and Delta Spirit’s Matthew Logan Vasquez, the band has embarked on two national tours, traded Instagram shout-outs with Killer Mike, and just performed at Birmingham’s Secret Stages Festival, all before heading west later this year for a run of fall tour dates. This flurry of activity follows the release of March’s widely-praised EP, I Don’t Mean to Dwell – recorded with N.C. producer Scott Solter (St. Vincent, the Mountain Goats).
If that weren’t enough- earlier this spring, the trio returned to the studio with Charleston’s Wolfgang Zimmerman to record their second album of 2016, To Tell A Half-Truth. A stunningly poignant collection of music unlike anything the band has yet produced, you can now stream To Tell A Half-Truth’s lead single, “Out Of View” here – premiered today via MySpace.
Inspired by a book of poetry written over the course of Crane’s last years that family members discovered only after his death, the resulting interpretation shows Dear Blanca exploring vintage sounds, staying true to Crane’s sense of writing to placate a broken heart and idle hands. Dear Blanca’s To Tell A Half-Truth is out September 16th.
