Dry the River have announced details of the release of new single. Rollerskate is released on 9th March 2015 through Transgressive Records.
Last year saw the band play a sold-out UK tour in October, culminating in a euphoric show at The Forum, make an appearance at the Barbican in London as part of the Transgressive 10th Anniversary celebrations in late September and appear at festivals across the UK including two slots at Glastonbury and a Main Stage performance at Reading and Leeds.
Having also played prestigious headline shows at the Troubadour in Los Angeles and the Bowery Ballroom in New York in the autumn, the band return in February & March for a run of UK headline shows.
Horse Thief: This youthful band is a purveyor of a panoramic yet nuanced sound, flowing from intimate to anthemic, the mood from vibrant to contemplative, with front-man Cameron Neal's lyrics ranging from confessional to metaphorical. The result evokes the wide-open spaces of America's Midwest but infuses the sense of grit and wonderment with edgier emotions.
Horse Thief, originally founded in Denton, TX, moved to Oklahoma City to attend the Academy of Contemporary Music at the University of Central Oklahoma, from which they recently graduated. The band subsequently signed with the Flaming Lips' management and soon came to the attention of Bella Union. Though Fear In Bliss was conceived at Horse Thief's Oklahoma headquarters the band decided to record the album in LA, "to leave our comfort zone of Oklahoma", and producer Thom Monahan (Devendra Banhart, Vetiver) has helped the band fuse their renowned stage performance with studio quality.
