And there’s some new tour dates to boot ✨
Brighton math-rock poppers Orchards drop a surprise Acoustic EP and announce 2021 dates for their rescheduled Lovecore album tour.
With their aforementioned debut album dropping just before the UK COVID-19 lockdown in March, live performance plans were understandably scuppered as venues closed shop for the foreseeable. Not ones to stay down for long, the four-piece began compiling their new collection in separate locations. Featuring fan favourites like ‘Age of You’ and ‘Be Here’, the full EP is available to listen to now on all platforms.
“It sucks we haven’t been able to tour our debut album yet, but everyone’s in the same boat so it pretty much sucks for everyone,” share Orchards. “We never intended to make an acoustic EP, we were recording some songs for a radio session with Huw Stephens and decided to just keep on recording.
“It’s the first time we’ve ever really delved into recording ourselves so it was definitely a learning process for all of us, but we’ve ended up learning a bunch and have created something we’re all super proud of,” they continue. “This EP is for sure a different vibe to our summery pop album but we hope you love the chilled energy as much as the crazy climbing over bars energy we normally bring on tour! We cannot wait to be out there eventually playing the album for you all, with the bells and whistles, but for now, here’s some summery cuteness.”
Orchards Acoustic EP is available now via Big Scary Monsters. All previously purchased tickets for the 2020 Lovecore tour are valid for 2021 shows.
