HRVRD Announces Headline Tour; Launches Album Pre-order

HRVRD has officially launched their pre-order for From The Bird’s Cage, their highly anticipated sophomore full-length album and Equal Vision Records debut (releasing in partnership with Enjoy The Ride Records), which will be available in-stores and online February 19.

All pre-orders come with an instant MP3 download of “Flaming Creatures” – a brand new song from the album. From The Bird’s Cage will also be available on vinyl, with more information to be announced at a later date.

HRVRD will kick off their first full band tour of 2013 on January 27 in Orlando, FL, as direct support to Los Angeles, CA’s letlive. Today, HRVRD also announces that the band will headline a short run from Texas to South Carolina, with plans to perform at SXSW just prior. Fellow Charlotte, NC-based band Junior Astronomers will support on the nine-date venture. All upcoming tour dates can be seen below.

Tonight, HRVRD vocalist Jesse Clasen will also wrap up a short tour under his solo moniker, The Bear Romantic, in Columbia, SC. Performing alongside Clasen is Fol Chen drummer Garrett Henritz. The duo’s sets include a mix of reinterpretations and improvisational versions of The Bear Romantic and HRVRD songs, as well as new compositions created specifically for this tour. HRVRD / The Bear Romantic has shared the stage with the likes of Minus The Bear, Fun., Kaki King, Glassjaw, Cursive, The Felix Culpa, Eisley and more.

HRVRD recently released a two-song digital single featuring “Cardboard Houses” and “Parts & Labor”. The songs are available via iTunes, Amazon and other digital retailers, as well as on vinyl. The 7” vinyl featuring the two new songs is available at full band HRVRD shows and in their online merch store.
