Brooklyn-based psychedelic folk mainstay Woods is set to hit the road this summer in support of its forthcoming sixth LP, Sun And Shade. Recorded in the small town of Warwick in upstate New York, the follow-up to 2010′s At Echo Lake drops via the band’s own imprint, Woodsist, on June 14.


Starting in July, the band will hit the road for two months on a tour that includes dates in the U.S. and Canada, as well as a five-night stint in the U.K. Woods will co-headline with the Fresh And Onlys for the bulk of the North American tour, which also includes some nights with Kurt Vile And The Violators and—of course—sets at the Woodsist Festival in California.


Check out the feel-good jam, “Pushing Onlys,” which will appear on Sun And Shade, as well as the dates for Woods’ upcoming tour. Both are posted below.
