Before today, I had never heard of True Widow. But if Relapse is going to sign them, they can’t be half-bad.
From Dallas, True Widow is a “reverb-drenched shoegaze” threesome.
The band is currently recording its new album at the Echo Lab in Argyle, Texas, with producer Matt Pence for a late spring release.
“Returning to the Echo Lab just made sense,” explained True Widow drummer Slim TX. “It’s where the previous albums have been recorded and it feels like home. The same goes for working with Matt. He allowed us to stay true to ourselves on our self-titled album and develop the sounds that would become our cornerstone for everything that has followed.”
According to a press release, the band will take a brief break from recording to celebrate the signing with some southern shows.
Here’s where you can find them playing this month.
1/9: Baton Rouge, LA @ Spanish Moon
1/10: Atlanta, GA @ The Basement
1/11: Birmingham, AL @ The Bottletree
1/12: New Orleans, LA @ Triple Six Klubhaus
1/26: Denton, TX @ Rubber Gloves
