ERLAND & THE CARNIVAL RELEASE NEW SINGLE, PERFORM ON BBC2, AND GEAR UP FOR SXSW! NIGHTINGALE OUT 3/29 ON FULL TIME HOBBY/YEP ROC.
UK’s Erland & The Carnival are preparing for their second-ever visit stateside, and they’re bringing with them a new single, “Nightingale” – the title track off their forthcoming LP, out March 29th on Full Time Hobby/Yep Roc. A darkly magnificent song that could be taken straight from the soundtrack of some bastard union between The Wicker Man and Blade Runner, “Nightingale” builds in a stunning fashion from sinister dirge to opulent march.

In other E&TC news, the band recently performed a stripped-down version of the song for The Review Show on BBC2.
Finally, for those attending SXSW this year, there will be several rare opportunities to catch Erland & The Carnival live in the U.S.! More will likely be announced, but for the time being…
