Listen to first single Chemicals now!
Gregory Alan Isakov’s highly anticipated new album Evening Machines will be released 5 October 5. In advance of the release—his first in partnership with Dualtone Records—the album’s first single Chemicals is out now.
Recorded at a converted barn studio located on Isakov’s three-acre farm in Boulder County, CO, the thirteen-track album was self-produced and mixed by Tucker Martine (Neko Case, The Decemberists) and Andrew Berlin (Descendents, Rise Against).
Of the record—his fourth full-length studio album and first in five years—Isakov comments, “I’d work really hard into the night. A lot of times I would find myself in the light of all these VU meters and the tape machine glow, so that’s where the title came from. I recorded mostly at night, when I wasn’t working in the gardens. It doesn’t matter if it’s summer or winter, morning or afternoon, this music always feels like evening to me.”
In celebration of the album, Isakov will embark on an extensive worldwide tour this autumn – including a sold out return headline show at Colorado’s famed Red Rocks Amphitheatre on 30 September with special guest Patty Griffin – and UK / Ireland shows that include a headline at London’s O2 Shepherd’s Bush Empire.
Here are the full UK tour dates:
4 December — O2 Shepherd’s Bush Empire, London
5 December — SWX, Bristol
8 December — Saint Luke’s, Glasgow
9 December — Academy 3, Manchester
