THE ANTLERS

 Surprise release “Losing Light” EP, featuring four reimagined songs from the band’s latest album “Green To Gold”

2022 worldwide tour dates announced

Earlier this year The Antlers – aka Peter Silberman and Michael Lerner – released their first album in seven years titled Green to Gold, a bucolic record which Pitchfork described as “a post-rock orchestra playing around a campfire… the sound of hard-won peace of mind, rendered in the lightest brushstrokes.”

Today the band is releasing Losing Light via Transgressive, a new EP that reimagines four songs from Green to Gold

The Antlers allow this EP to become this magical journey for the audience to embrace. Filled with voyages of escapism, intricate lyrics, and melodies. Bountiful rhythms and picture-esque words. The atmosphere within each track becomes entirely immersive and ever-lasting. Delicate and exuding this ambitious warmth.

Crafting these new tracks, Peter Silberman wondered: “How would these songs sound if they were being reconstituted from memory fifty years from now, after decades of technological evolution, alongside analog and digital degradation? I began to consider how we reconstruct the past once we’re many years removed from it, with only scattered, decaying artifacts to reference.”

Following this premise of Green to Gold as if remembered from the distant future, we began to reassemble pieces of several songs in different iterations— the earliest versions and demos, pieces of the album versions, and newly-created recordings,” he added. “To bring them all into the same world, we processed each of these elements in ways that would repeatedly age them backwards and forwards, as if being blasted into the past, then flung into the future.”

The Antlers have also announced a Spring 2022 tour with a full band, their first set of dates since 2019’s sold-out Hospice 10 Year Anniversary acoustic tour – dates/info below:
