Sometime this year, we’ll get a fresh new studio album from HALLELUJAH THE HILLS. Until then, there’s this internet-only live cut of “Nightingale Lightning,” which they recorded last summer on Woody Guthrie’s birthday at a gig in Toronto while on tour with Titus Andronicus. The show has a special place in the hearts of the folksy rock band after they were detained by the border patrol for more than three hours and their van was torn to shreds, en route back to the States.
Over the weekend, Boston's wicked smart indie-folk band Hallelujah the Hills released a new video for “Put The Gurus In Charge,” one of the finer tracks included on last year’s Colonial Drones album (Mistra). But while it’s helping erase this damning case of the Mundaze, unfortunately it does remind us of how much we miss Punchdrunk’s Sleep No More
This weekend, our bowling buddies HALLELUJAH THE HILLS kick off a month-long jaunt in support of their critically-acclaimed -- and Phoenix-beloved -- album Colonial Drones. They also dropped us single #2, "Flight of the Paper Pilots," to slide to you on the sly. Which we're totally stoked about, since it's our fave from the album: a live standout, it's an irresistably upbeat tune that invariably climaxes with the front row shouting along with the closing coda, "I'm gonna die!" HtH make their way back to town November 21 at Great Scott (full tour dates below).
