THE BLAKES Announce Tour Dates and CMJ

The Blakes are back on the road next month showcasing at CMJ followed by tour dates in Philly, Boston, DC and Chicago with more dates to be added soon.

The Seattle trio released Art of Losses this summer and in 34 minutes, the album zips through dreamy pop, electro-tinged rock, moody post-punk and lo-fi guitars mixed with big harmonies.  Whitney Matheson of USA Today’s “Pop Candy Blog” said, “I've been listening to this album all week long and can't say enough good things about the band...  catchy pop to punk to rockabilly; no matter what genre they tackle, the result is always impressive.”

Accolades continued from KEXP, Consequence of Sound, RCRDLBL, PopMatters, Blurt and more. Emily Zemler at RCRD LBL called Art of Losses, “A terse collection of alt-pop numbers. The title track is a swaggering rocker that pairs grungy guitars with pensively mopey vocals, throwing back to ‘60s-style rock.”  Check out “Art of Losses” at RCRDLBL here.  Grab a taste of The Blakes live from their in-studio performance at KEXP here and stream Art of Losses in full here.
