True Widow Signs With Relapse To Release Album This Year

True Widow, the band referred to by Brooklyn Vegan as "reverb-drenched shoegaze," has signed with Relapse Records with an eye towards a late Spring release.

The band is currently recording at the Echo Lab in Argyle, Tex, reuniting with As High As The Highest Heavens And From The Center To The Circumference Of The Earth producer Matt Pence (Yuck, Jay Farrar).

"Returning to the Echo Lab just made sense," explained drummer Slim TX "It's where the previous albums have been recorded and it feels like home. The same goes for working with Matt. He allowed us to stay true to ourselves on our self-titled album and develop the sounds that would become our cornerstone for everything that has followed."

True Widow have released two previous albums: "True Widow" (2008) and "As High As The Highest Heavens And From The Center To The Circumference Of The Earth" (2011). Each release has built on the band's unique approach to the guitar-centric intersection of shoegaze and ambient pop, which the band self-described as "stonegaze," NPR described the band's sophomore release as "a warming headphone album for a bleak snowfall, moody and dreamy chords crushed by a rumbling low-end." Decibel Magazine said the album is "a droning, strung-out record that is, frankly, almost perfect."

The band will take a brief break from recording to head out on a handful of dates this month:

January 9 Baton Rouge, LA Spanish Moon
January 10 Atlanta, GA The Basement
January 11 Birmingham, AL The Bottletree
January 12 New Orleans, LA Triple Six Klubhaus
January 26 Denton, TX Rubber Gloves

True Widow is DH Phillips (guitar/vocals), Nicole Estill (bass/vocals) and Slim TX (drums).
