A Great Big Pile of Leaves, Young Statues & Mansions to Tour Together in 2012

Dates Kick Off March 1 and Include Stops at SXSW and TX’s Never Say Never Festival

A Great Big Piles of Leaves (Topshelf Records) Young Statues (Run for Cover Records) and Mansions (Burning House/King Bones) have announced plans for a 2012 trek that kicks off March 1st in NYC and includes stops at Never Say Never Festival in Mission, TX and appearances at SXSW. The tour winds down on April Fools Day in Boston, MA.

Brooklyn, NY’s A Great Big Pile of Leaves recently released a pair of EP’s, one a live recording titled Live From The Living Room and the other, a studio EP titled Boom! Philadelphia, PA’s Young Statues released their critically acclaimed self-titled debut in November. Last month, both bands opened for The Early November on their sold out reunion show in NJ.  

Praise for A Great Big Pile of Leaves:

“…indie pop with a buttoned-down sophistication and the upright carriage of a chamber-pop act… at once dreamy, delicate and insistent, shuffling seductively in its gentle beauty…. pretty, urbane indie pop… well-crafted and crisply executed.”-Alternative Press

Praise for Young Statues:

“…a cumulative composite of 30 years of indie Americana, weaving a clear thread through Fables of the Reconstruction-era REM, mid-90’s alt-country and the post-millenial roots-pop of groups such as the Shins and Band of Horses…..”Alternative Press

With a sound firmly rooted in Americana, indie-pop and emo-tinged acoustica, it’s a rich palette of sounds that New Jersey / Philadelphia-formed Young Statues draw from on this debut…singer Carmen Cirignano’s vocals wrap a warm embrace around these eleven dreamy tales of lost love and life on the fringes.”- Rock Sound
