Kurt Vile announces new album + Australian tour + shares ‘Bassackwards’

Details of the new Kurt Vile album have finally be confirmed, Bottle It In is out on Friday 12 October and now available for pre-order here. Today’s announcement is accompanied by the release of a new single ‘Bassackwards’, an ode to the parking challenges in Vile’s native Philadelphia. Watch the video below!

The epic, loping ‘Bassackwards’ is the album’s beating heart and Vile’s most compelling evocation of how he sees the world: “I was on the ground circa Planet Earth, but out of sorts,” he sings over a gently psychedelic bed of backmasked guitars. “But I snapped back, baby, just in time to jot it down.”

Vile will hit the road in Australia in April 2019 with support from RVG. Catch Kurt Vile and the Violators perform shows in Sydney, Wollongong, Canberra, Melbourne, Adelaide, Perth and Byron Bay Bluesfest. Full tour details and ticket links below.
