Summer Tour Dates Announced

New Orleans indie-punks Donovan Wolfington are gearing up to release their sophomore LP How to Treat the Ones You Love via Topshelf Records on August 21st, 2015.  Noisey has the exclusive premiere of the album’s lead track “Ollie North” today alongside a lengthy interview on the laborious process of writing and recording the record. Singer/guitarist Neil Berthier said in the interview of the recording process “I think we all lost something in one way or another, some more than others… There was a lot of distracting pain involved in making it.”

How to Treat the Ones You Love is available for pre-order beginning today from Topshelf Records and Donovan Wolfington have announced an August US tour in support of the new release (all tour dates below).

Donovan Wolfington’s brand of catchy, yet emotional punk draws from an eclectic group of influences including partying, making friends, traveling, and growing up in general. Guitarists/vocalists Neil Berthier and Matthew Seferian met at their college freshman orientation in 2011, both with the hopes of getting out of college alive and playing some music along the way. Shortly after meeting, they realized that everyone else that they had jammed with was not trying to rock nearly as hard as they were. With different musical ideas in their minds, and the same amount of energy and frustration built up, they decided to form Donovan Wolfington.  The band first garnered attention for their 2013 debut full-length, Stop Breathing which was followed by their 2014 EP Scary Stories You Tell in the Dark on Topshelf Records.
