To start the new year, Baltimore’s Lower Dens will play various live dates around the US, kicking off its string of shows this Wednesday (January 12), at Cat’s Cradle in Carrboro, NC. The group will be on the road throughout the middle of January and then again during the middle of March, ending the tour at SXSW in Austin, TX.

Twin Head Movement, the band’s debut album, on which the folk quartet delivers a gentle-relaxed sound with a blend of psychedelic guitar lines to craft an autumn-like feeling, was released on July 20, 2010. The band will be touring in support of their upcoming single “Batman,” set for release on January 18. “Batman” and “Dear Betty Baby,” a Mayo Thompson cover, are streaming on SoundCloud.
