THE THING WITH FEATHERS
ANNOUNCE DEBUT EP, U.S. TOUR
GROUP USHERS IN MASTERFUL INDIE POP SOUND WITH SUNDAYS IN THE SOUTH
On February 18th, the ever-evolving Nashville-based band The Thing With Feathers will release their exhilarating debut EP Sundays In The South. Masterfully produced by Owen Lewis (Old Sea Brigade, Snow Patrol), the career-defining release pushes the boundaries of pop-infused alternative rock to lengths not previously exhibited by their Nashville contemporaries.
With the November 19th release of ‘Static’, the first single from the upcoming EP, followed by the January 14th release of 'Lights Down Low' and its accompanying music video, the bands aggressive expansion of their footprint will culminate in the February 18th full release of Sundays In The South and a coinciding tour of the U.S. leading into the spring of 2022.

The band previously shared the lead single from the extended play, 'Lights Down Low'. The ballad, an atmospheric and anthemic evolution for the band, was produced by Owen Lewis and Ben Cramer.
Speaking on the origins of lead single, “Lights Down Low,” frontman Dave Welcsh writes that it “...tells the events of a fast and dangerous relationship that started in a smoke filled bar. [The song is about] two characters' rebellion against the whitewashed ideologies of southern Christian culture. The song is centered around a bass riff and has an overall darker tone, something we were eager to play around with after writing songs that were bright and pop-forward.”
Last month, the band announced their Sundays In The South Tour, in support of their forthcoming EP, Sundays in the South. The run of shows kicks off in Newport, KY on February 22nd, before going on to Chicago, Madison, Milwaukee and other cities, before culminating in a hometown performance in Nashville on March 5th. The band also shared the news that they will be performing as an official artist at this year's South By Southwest Festival in Austin, TX. Full list of dates below. Tickets can be purchased HERE.

ABOUT THE THING WITH FEATHERS
The Thing With Feathers is an alt-rock, pop and dance enigma, fueled by four of Nashville’s favorite fools: David Welcsh (vocals), Sean Carroll (bass), Alex Hendricks (lead guitar) and Chris Roussell (drums). Embodying the punk ethos of DIY, the Feathers bring the kind of eccentric, electric energy capable of catapulting a garage band, initially built for taking over college towns, in front of both underground and mainstream audiences alike.
