Formed in 2008 in the sweaty dancehalls of Lafayette, Louisiana, GIVERS have returned with their tour de force sophomore album, New Kingdom, out today on Glassnote Records. Hailed by NPR, Stereogum, New York Magazine and more, New Kingdom bursts open the sonic palate and showcases GIVERS’ darker, ethereal side. The band previously shared album singles “Record High, Record Low” “Bermuda” and “Sleeper Hold” featuring New Orleans legend Dr. John, offering fans an early taste. The album stream was available to hear a week early with Pandora and beginning today fans can hear the album streaming in full on Spotify + more!
The band have hit the road one again and are currently on a national tour which will hit NYC, DC, Philadelphia, Atlanta and many more, wrapping with a hometown show November 28 in Lafayette at Warehouse Five Three Five.
The New York Times declared, “The music affirms joy with globe-spanning grooves” upon the release of GIVERS’ 2011 debut album In Light. During that time, they found themselves bouncing along a global festival circuit, making their national TV debut on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon and performing alongside the likes of Preservation Hall Jazz Band at Carnegie Hall.
