Recent members of Rolling Stone’s list of Top 10 CMJ 2013 discoveries, Saintseneca have announced that they’ll be taking their folk-revival act on the road, and have duly given us a sneak peak at what we can expect from them. The Columbus, Ohio, band has spent the better part of a year working on their new album, Dark Arc, due out on April 1 via Anti-, and is ready to unleash its blend of folk-rock and post-punk onto the world.
 
The single, Happy Alone, is an ode to the empowerment of isolation. And although the band doesn’t get to don any bubbles in their modest live performance, the tightness of the group mixed with some clever number-based wordplay—and lead singer Zac Hill’s impressive ‘stache—more than make up for it. Sometimes being alone is easier when we’re all alone together, so check out the live video from Bad Racket, as well as Saintseneca’s tour dates and Dark Arc‘s tracklist below.
