BON IVER

First it was For Emma, Forever Ago. The soul in a refraction of icicles. A moment hanging like breath on air. And yet life – even still life – is not still. The story is not a story if it does not unravel. Your eyes you may cast backward, but the heart is locked in the chest and must beat forever forward. Bon Iver, Bon Iver is the frozen beast pressing upward from a loosening earth, one ear cocked to the echo of the ghost choir still singing, the other craving the martial call of drums tumbling, of thrum and wheeze. The desolation smoke has dissipated, cut with strips of brass. Celebration will not be denied, the cabinet cannot contain the rattle, there is meat on the bones.

Bon Iver Announces New U.S. Tour Dates

Today we’re happy to announce new Bon Iver tour dates along the Eastern United States, including two additional dates in New York at Radio City Music Hall. Anais Mitchell will open for most of these shows.

Much has been said of Bon Iver’s transformation into a nine-person live band. The Miami New Times in a recent live review, captures the essence of this magic particularly well: “Often, live music is an attempt to approximate something captured in a studio. As exceptional as Bon Iver’s recordings are, Bon Iver in concert is an entirely different creature. By turns defiant and pliant, pained and triumphant, with Bon Iver, the songs are not merely live but living.” Check out the full list of tour dates below.

Last night, the inaugural Libera Awards took place at New York City’s Le Poisson Rouge. Curated by the American Association of Independent Music, the awards ceremony is held to “recognize the growing support and market share for independent artists by celebrating the accomplishments of independent musicians and the independent labels and services that support them.” We’re honored to announce Jagjaguwar walked away with two Libbies: Record Label of the Year and Bon Iver won Independent Album of the Year!
