Mothers are pleased to announce details of a new string of UK live dates, and the release of a deluxe edition of their acclaimed debut, When You Walk A Long Distance You Are Tired, through Wichita.

The Athens, Georgia band will return to the UK in August to play a special PIAS Nites show at London’s Lexington on the 17th August ahead of a slot at the Green Man Festival on the 19th August. The dates continue throughout August, concluding at End of the Road Festival in Dorset, and Electric Picnic in Ireland on the 2nd and 3rd September respectively. See full details below including ticket links to all headline shows.

In anticipation of these forthcoming shows, Mothers will release a digital-only deluxe version of their spellbinding debut album on 29th July 2016, and have unveiled one of the bonus tracks from that release online today.

The new release will feature four, early demo recordings, and Accessory Cloud, previously only available as a digital bonus track upon the LP’s initial release earlier this year. Mothers fans may recognise Mother and Wife as the track vocalist Kristine Leschper performed solo to close their recent Spring live dates. Kristine says of the bonus tracks: “These songs are, for the most part, a collection of early cassettes and home recordings. “Accessory Cloud” is the only studio recording included, which was originally cut from the record because it wouldn’t fit on the vinyl pressing. “Mother And Wife” and “Easy As Possible” are some of my favorite recordings of ours to date, which were tracked at home on a tascam 4-track cassette machine after we had finished “When You Walk A Long Distance You Are Tired” but before we released it.”

Deluxe release, additional tracks: Accessory Cloud/Paradise At Last/Easy As Possible/Get Around/Mother And Wife
