(Thirty Tigers) Jesse Sykes & The Sweet Hereafter will release Marble Son on August 2, 2011 through their own label, Station Grey Records.
Marble Son is the band's fourth album and the first that was co-produced by Jesse Sykes and longtime bandmate, Phil Wandscher, along with engineer, Mell Dettmer.
Though oft saddled with the "alt-country" tag, of late, Sykes and Co. have moved into slightly heavier and darker territories. Marble Son exemplifies a band at their creative pinnacle—heavier and more complex than previous records; the music resonates among the parallel worlds of the avant-garde and the timeless.
The band will celebrate the release of Marble Son with a special show in Seattle on August 4th, and will be joined by special guests, The Sadies. That will be followed by a couple of performances at the Pickathon Festival in Portland, OR. More tour dates will be announced soon.
8/4 - Seattle @ The Showbox Theatre, w/ special guest The Sadies. Presented by KEXP.
