Listen to an Epic New Kurt Vile Song, "Bassackwards"

Kurt Vile has confirmed details for his new album, Bottle It In. The 13-track effort will be released on October 12th via Matador Records. Guests on the record include Kim Gordon, Cass McCombs, Lucius, Stella Mozgawa, Mary Lattimore and more.

Vile has also shared a new song, “Bassackwards,” which follows up the previously-released single, “Loading Zones.” A press release calls “Bassackwards” “the album’s beating heart and Vile’s most compelling evocation of how he sees the world: ‘I was on the ground circa Planet Earth, but out of sorts,’ he sings over a gently psychedelic bed of backmasked guitars. ‘But I snapped back, baby, just in time to jot it down.’ ”

Vile has also confirmed a lengthy run of worldwide tour dates for 2019 with backing band the Violators, in addition to previously announced tour dates coming up this fall. The 2019 North American shows traverse a multitude of East Coast, Midwest, Southwest, and Southern cities, with support from The Feelies.  A special hometown show in Philadelphia has been added for December 29th 2018, which will take place at the newly rehabilitated historic Metropolitan Opera House (aka The Met Philadelphia) as part of their opening week celebration. The full list of tour dates can be found below.
