American Babies Announce U.S. Tour + New EP “Stark & Red”

AmericanBabies_HiRes1-1024x682American Babies are set to launch a cross-country U.S. tour this weekend. The Philadelphia-based band, fronted by Tom Hamilton, kick-off a 32-date run with two hometown shows at Union Transfer followed by headline performances throughout the Midwest and Colorado. The Babies then join TL3 (featuring members of Tea Leaf Green) for a stretch of West Coast dates. A highlight along the way is a performance at Grateful Dead bassist Phil Lesh’s Terrapin Crossroads in San Rafael, CA at his birthday celebration. The trek concludes back home in Philadelphia at Underground Arts in April. The tour also marks the maiden voyage for the band’s new bassist Marc Friedman, best known for his work with The Slip.

American Babies are touring in support of their latest studio album, Knives & Teeth, released in Fall 2013 by The Royal Potato Family. Relix Magazine praised the effort “as one of the better rock records of the year.” On April 1, American Babies will also drop a new EP, Stark & Red, via RPF. The seven track collection is comprised of stripped-down, acoustic versions of five songs released on previous albums, including stand-outs “Streets of Brooklyn,” “Winter War Games” and “Swimming At Night.” In addition, the set features two reworked, acoustic renderings of “Old Fashioned” and “Goddamn” from Knives & Teeth.
