The Antlers Announce Hospice 10th Anniversary Reissue and Tour

The Antlers have announced a 10th anniversary reissue and accompanying tour celebrating their breakthrough third album Hospice. The double-white vinyl reissue of the 2009 indie favorite is due out on March 8 on Frenchkiss Records/Transgressive. The new run of shows of American and European shows are the band’s first since 2015, and come after a haphazard announcement of an extended hiatus announced in late 2017.

As lead singer Peter Silberman explained in a statement, the shows will be “small acoustic” affairs, but the band will play Hospice in its entirety at all of them. Silberman also clarified that Darby Cicci, a multi-instrumentalist who had been part of the primary Antlers trio since 2007, was no longer with the band. Silberman hinted that the shows would feature “some old friends and guests” (Hospice guest vocalist Sharon Van Etten, perhaps?)

The last Antlers album was 2014’s Familiars. Check out the band’s upcoming American, UK, and European tour dates below.
