Woods announce tour dates & cover The Kinks on new single [News/Listen]

Woods is hitting the road this Spring & Summer, with a May trip to Europe where they will appear at festivals like The Great Escape and Primavera Sound. In July the band will tour the East Coast and Midwest with Parquet Courts, including a return trip to Pitchfork Fest in Chicago. The band will release a new single on July 9 in celebration of the tour, and on the B-side they cover The Kinks’ God’s Children.

The new single serves as a farewell to Rear House, Woods’ home, recording studio, creative refuge and beloved shithole for 10 long years. God’s Children is a classic Kinks tune from the soundtrack to the 1971 British film Percy. “Be All Be Easy,” originally from 2011’s Sun and Shade, was re-recorded to capture the live form that’s taken shape since it’s original release. Both are the first to feature new drummer, Aaron Neveu.
