‘SEEK WARMER CLIMES’ OUT TODAY

Today Lower’s debut album ‘Seek Warmer Climes’ is out everywhere (Escho in Denmark, Big Love in Japan and Matador covering the other corners). The band recently wrapped up a tour in the US and are now in the UK playing shows with Fucked Up tonight and tomorrow. The New York times caught the band in New York and called them “a post-punk band in early metamorphosis, luxuriating in unease,” and describes their songs as “strong, stirring and ready” and “gnarled and fortressed.”

By Now: iTunes / Matador Store – first pressing of the LP on white Vinyl, includes a Lower pin, MP3 download card
