Emily Becker I haven't checked yet but if our shows sold out we need to be on the hunt to buy them off someone 👀

Glass Animals Glass Animals I love you as a band! I love all of your songs! But I lost a level of respect for you on what you did for your fans in Portland Oregon on December 14th 2016. There was very dangerous weather conditions that everyone was advised not to drive in and yet you still played your concert. There was no refund or anything to the people who couldn't go because the city of Portland told people not to drive. You said you would make it up to people in Portland who couldn't come. But you knew you where coming back!!! So in the end you just wanted our money and make us pay twice! For a show we didn't see on December 14th and for your new up coming show in Troutdale. I am very disappointed in how you treated this whole situation!! For you to expect your fans to pay twice for a show and not caring about their safety is wrong.

Yay! Been wanting to see them again since they stole the show at Red Rocks last year...can't wait for Chicago with my love Seth 😍

Laura Franzen looks like there might be tickets still in St. Paul!!

Please come to Greece for a concert. Or one thousand concerts! You're my favourite band and love your music so badly. Ι appreciate you in an unlimited way. Thank you <3

hi couldnt help but notice theres only 3 shows in canada and 2 are labelled "US" instead of "CA" im actually pretty disappointed there's no shows near me because i dont think i'll be able to drive all the way to seattle just to see you guys. tbh im a little confused how this is a north america tour when you basically stay in the states and theres over 4x as many shows in the us than in canada and mexico combined

Coming from KS to Colorado to see you 2 more times take care red rock's 2nd time almost exactly 1 year apart and 1 row closer #peanutbuttervibes

Uh, one problem... I don't see Missouri (or Kansas- don't like it but I'd take it) anywhere on that list. 😪🍍 (big pineapple tears)

Can't wait to see you with Little Dragon on Wednesday at Red Rocks!!!

Just got my tickets 👍🏽😁😁 can't wait to see you in September! 💜💜💜

Gloria Djeufa Jennifer Leclerc glass animals au metro polis de montreal 👌 jvous dis ca dememe 🙄

See you at the Shrine, Glass Animals 😍😍 Devlin Perez we'll be in the pit!!

Any chance of some Leaflings making any setlists? Would love to hear Golden Antlers in St Paul! 🍃

AYYYYYYYYYY did you get a tent yet to camp a ommegang I'm bringing s'mores

Flying from San Diego to see you (for the third time this year!) in Red Rocks!! 🤘🏼😎🍍

I am SO excited for this. My heart broke last time you were in town and I couldn't go. 😍❤️

Glass Animals - Agnes
there are varying degrees of autobiography and my own life in each song i write…but for the most part, that stuff is buried and clouded in fiction or blended with other peoples’ lives that i’ve heard about in taxis or at parties or on the street. But there is one song that stands apart from the rest. it is the most truthful, honest, and personal story i have ever written. and that song is ‘Agnes’.

as soon as i started writing it i knew it would be the album closer. the lyrics came out quite quickly and then i spent a while fitting in references to time and life and its natural cycle. weeks, minutes, seconds, birth, breaths, death…etc. I tried to push those themes into the music too…with recurring loops, lullaby melodies, and synths that pull up and down and in all different directions at the same time. it was a tough one to record, and the only way i could get the vocal right was to record it with the vocal mic held close in my hands alone in a small room and finish it just as intimately as it started. i often get asked in interviews “which is your favourite track on the album”….and my reply is always “don’t be ridiculous….i could never choose….that’s like choosing a favourite child.” but i’m not sure that rings true anymore. Agnes is the one. it’s my favourite song on the record, and the saddest song i will ever write. probably. I hope you like it.

Big Love,
Dave

Comment on Facebook

Also waiting for a music video and a mini-website for this song, it's so powerful ^^ Actually it was stuck in my head for weeks so I had to draw something… I thought I could give it to you next time I’ll see you if I had the opportunity but as I don’t know when it will happen… here it is, I don’t know if you’ll read this comment but let’s give it a try ^^

Out of curiosity, did anyone have a moment of...maybe guilt/realization listening to this? To clarify, I listened to "Agnes" and thought, "Is this how sad a loved one feels when I cycle in to a bad mental health spell?" It reminded me that it hurts people to see me hurt and that someone actually cares. My mental health hurdles aren't nearly as severe as the ones covered in the song, but I do relate to Agnes a bit. It reminded me of reaching out to people I care for who need me, but the song also reminded me that someone is reaching out for me when I need them. Let me know!

i think this song is about addiction, depression, possibly suicide, but it definitely struck accord with me with the line "i want to hold you like you're mine". made me think of my son that i placed for adoption a few years ago. knowing that i will only ever get to hold pictures of him but not him. the song almost made me cry at one point...

When I first heard zaba, I couldn't place the genre so i decided it was 'acid rain forest'. Then htbahb smacked me in the face- totally different sound- again couldnt place the genre.. so I decided you were 'genre neutral ' 😂 Agnes is a powerful song and as you can see from the 20 million comments it means a lot to heaps of people. I feel as though I wrote it when I hear it. Please keep being awesome- really enjoying watching the glass animals journey to world domination. 👏👏👏👏

Mahika Banerjee you were right. This was so evident and yet reading it hurts more than the song's ever made me feel (and it's made me feel a fuck ton) Aria Chaturvedi

Seriously, this whole album has become the soundtrack to everything I do. I can't get enough of it. But Agnes....even when it's time to turn off the music I will always listen to that song before I move on. I really wish you guys were touring close to me!

It's one of my favourite songs ever. I went through a similar situation years ago so I take it really personally, if it makes any sense... I was hoping you'd play it here in Chile, but if you feel such a beautiful and sad song, it can't be easy to play. Thank you, Dave, for that incredibly special song 💖 hurts, but also a makes me feel so alive ❤️️

deffo my favourite song. it makes me really really sad but it also comforts me in a really weird way I guess. I can't even imagine how hard it must have been for you to write a song this close to your heart and I only have respect for that and that you actually perform it live. <3 ps if you play it at lowlands I'll bring cookies

i cried my eyes out when i heard Agnes at the Albert Hall in March ❤️ it's a hugely personal song for me also, pretty much a parallel to the last couple of years of a very close friend's life and it meant a great deal to me to see you play it live x

The whole album is brilliant But thank you for the enlightenment... It not only shows the obvious thought you put into the crafting of your songs but also the passion and relevance to yourself and that is always interesting to hear... Looking forward to the next album guys...me and my kids have loved them both... But particularly the last one and anyone I have played your stuff too has always asked who it is... You're infectiously brilliant!!! *smiles*

definitely a favourite of mine as well. it's one of those songs that's capable of moving something deep inside of me which i can't really explain. basically, it just feels like i enter an subconscious enchantment every time i hear this song. it's a thing of beauty.

I love Agnes, such a beautiful song, sometimes i cry by listening it but also imagine how beautiful was her! Dave!! cheers from Colombia, Glass Animals my Favorite band!!!

Agnes is by far my favorite song in general. I've probably listened to it at least once a day since it came out, and I'll never get tired of it ☺❤

Sally Hicks, have you heard this song yet?? It's so good!

I love this song. When I bought the album I listened to it beginning to end and when I got to this song it just hit me. It's by far my favorite, it hits home. I tear up whenever I hear it. Thank you for pouring your heart and soul into your music. I can't wait to see you guys in September!

I still get emotional every time I hear this song, there's just so much raw emotion expressed in every second. It's so deeply personal but so relatable too. Something about the chorus "you're gone but you're on my mind, I'm lost but I don't know why." gets me every time. I guess it perfectly and concisely expresses something that I've felt so many times in life. Thank you guys for the beautiful, intricate music you make, it has been a life changer for me 💜💚💛

This song touches my soul. I had the chance to meet Dave last summer after he performed at buzz Beach ball in Kansas City. I told him that his music and lyrics help get me through both the manic and depression of my bi-polar disorder. He teared up and after this song was released I got some more clarity as to why. Evey day is a struggle but also a blessing. Especially when I can enjoy awesome music like this.

Wow. This song was the anthem of my life last year while I was going through a difficult time. I often push myself to ignore my feelings, and every time I listened to this song I would feel sadness, happiness, or some sort of weird mixture of both. I was mainly just glad to be put in a position where I had to feel and deal with my feelings. Now knowing how close this song was to you makes it that much more special. I don't know if it was the lyrics, or the melody, or both, but I almost always tear up when I hear this song. Now it reminds me of how I was strong enough to get through such a hard time, and that I am a human, and it's ok to feel hurt, and to not be perfect. Thank you for writing and sharing this song. It is beautiful

This song is one of the reasons I'm still alive. Thank you Dave, you'll never know how much I appreciate the music you create. 💜

I happy I caught this post. When I listen to your songs, Anges is the one that always makes me hault after singing it because it truly makes me sad. It makes me feel for the "character" in the story. It makes me wonder if they are doing okay now. Really a great song. Cheers to you and the rest of Glass Animals for creating this song as well as the entire album. Truly a joy. Cannot wait to hear you play again.

Ahh I feel like this song is so underrated, probably because it's the last song on the album (but it fits perfectly there). It's the track I truly look forward to every time I play the album. Agnes is one of the saddest songs I heard last year and yet it bring me such comfort every time

I just listened to Agnes but, I mean, really listening and I'm pretty sure I felt the emotion that flew through you while recording the song. I don't know why but I have listened to Agnes many times and this is the first one that made me feel pure empathy. Also, your voice sounds marshmallow-like. I'm pretty sure I'll never listen to Agnes in the same way

Love all your music. "I'm lost but I don't know why." Is my favorite lyric. Sticks with me as it is part of who I am as a human. Can't wait to see you play in Seattle this September.

I love this song so much. "Guess life is long when soaked in sadness on borrowed time from Mr. Madness" combined with the melody of the song gets me nearly every time. This song makes me so emotional and I can never put my finger on why, but, it also sounds so hopeful too? Idk it's a weird combination of sadness and hope I get when I hear it, love Agnes.

This album got me through some hard times . This song in particular . Seen y'all three times live and your still my favorite band . Dave and co. Thanks for this one .one of the last original groups out there . 🙌

Glass Animals
www.glassanimals.eu/
It’s less than 48 hours after frontman Dave Bayley has applied the finishing touches to Glass Animals’ second album and he’s contemplating where he and his bandmates found themselves only two years ago. “It’s mad, we were in our friend’s basement playing to four people,” he laughs. Fast forward to six months ago and they were rounding off a tour that catapulted Dave and bandmates Drew MacFarlane (guitar), Edmund Irwin-Singer (bass) and Joe Seward (Drums) around the world and back; climaxing in sold-out shows at The Wiltern in LA and Terminal 5 in New York, via huge festival slots in Australia, the US and - of course - Glastonbury. Have they been able to gain any perspective on all this worldwide success? “I don’t know if I have!” Dave wonders. “It’s such a strange position to be in. I always thought Glass Animals would just be a fun thing to do with my friends. To be able to do it as a career is totally mental. I haven’t had time to think about it. I’d probably go crazy if I did.” Indeed, given the successes, Glass Animals would be ripe for the cliched ‘difficult second album’ experience. Every tour has sold out, they’ve hit 200 million streams and debut album ‘Zaba’ shifted over 500,000 records. For a band on a label backed by legendary producer Paul Epworth no less - the pressure to up the ante had potential crippling side-effects. Dave doesn’t bat an eyelid when it comes to the mention of the sophomore slump phenomenon at all, though. He simply didn’t have time to get himself in a pickle. Instead, only six months after getting off the road he’s already plotting what the stage sets are going to look like, how the artwork will take shape, and so on. The new LP - titled ‘How To Be A Human Being’ - has come together so fast you’d assume they wrote it on the road. “No! We didn’t have time,” says Dave. “It happened as soon as we came off the tourbus.” Before his suitcase was even on the ground, Dave was setting up shop in their small studio space in Hornsey, North London by himself. Writing the skeleton of the album in a week and a half over Christmas, he was desperate to put the experiences of the last two years onto paper before he forgot them. “I had the most successful time I’ve ever had writing,” he says humbly. “I had all of these stories in my head.” Mapping out the skeletons of the songs proved to be an entirely different process from that taken on ‘Zaba’. “Last time, I started with beats and electronic soundscapes, and this time I started mainly with chords, vocal lines... sometimes even lyrics. I tried to invert the whole process,” he explains. The majority of the writing, sonics and production was taken care of in an intense 10-day period. Then in January, Dave began polish out the stories, lyrics, and music, perfecting
the parts.​

He would send the bear bones of each song to the band. He would bring the demos to the band, and as a group they would develop the music

further, experimenting with the arrangements and instrumentation. As indicated by lead single ‘Life Itself’, the new sound is bigger, bolder and far more ambitious. Dave makes a point of not listening to his contemporaries when making music, preferring to look inwards to the world Glass Animals have built. In crafting this record, his thoughts returned to one factor he couldn’t even dream of on ‘Zaba’ - the huge live audiences they’d been drawing. “You sense what the crowds react to: big drums, bass, high tempo.” As Glass Animals’ live set evolved, so did their sonic aspirations. Dave himself is like an electro Einstein, forever pursuing his next lightbulb moment. “That instant when a melody pops into your head and you know that’s the one, or you sit down at a piano, hit four strange chords in a row and think - ooh that works! There was a conscious effort to make this record harder, angular and in-your-face. I started appreciating rawness.” The band would use first takes, shabby recordings, and sounds that resonated with soul, despite their technical imperfections. Much of this proved to be a punk-like reaction to the high-polished nature of pop Dave was hearing on the radio. “I was paranoid that’s what we sounded like,” he says. “On the last record I had the opposite mentality. Everything had to be perfect. This is more gritty. We’ve shaken that mentality now.” ‘How To Be A Human Being’ is about people. Many of his lyrical ideas came from live recordings of people saved on Dave’s phone, as though he’d been operating as some sort of roaming journalist all this time. “I try to sneakily record people, and I have hours and hours of these amazing rants from taxi drivers, people we met outside of shows, people at parties. People say the strangest shit when they don’t think they’re ever gonna see you again...and sometimes they’ll break your heart with the saddest, most touching stories.” The voice notes sparked ideas for characters that Dave developed, writing an album like a TV screenwriter might approach a script. “I’d obsess over what they ate, where they lived, what their furniture looked like, what they wore,” he laughs. “Some of it’s quite autobiographical but said through the eyes of someone else.” Their fascination with the human condition is understandable given their relative isolation a few years ago. Back in Oxford, studying medicine at university, the thought of being a real-life viable band wasn’t something that crossed their mind. They were living in a bubble. “We spent those years really isolated, just making our own noise. Then all of a sudden we crashed into this place where we were in a different city every day, meeting so many characters every day.” From the depths of ‘Agnes’ to the danceable humour of ‘Life Itself’, this second album is a zeitgeist-leaning, intrepid exploration into what makes us all tick, told from the viewpoint of four guys who have experienced life in its most extreme and unexpected form for the past two years. It doesn’t just connect with your feet - it connects with your brain, your heart, your soul. ‘How To Be A Human Being’ is a multi-layered, nuanced album that uniquely splices together 40 years of sonic history in a way that’s emphatically

forward-sounding. In the characters and themes explored, the record creates a world for fans to inhabit. With every listen comes further insight, not just into Glass Animals’ universe but the human condition itself.

Little Dragon
little-dragon.net/
"Nabuma Rubberband gamely wrestles with soul, R&B, and electronic music in a way that feels both rigorously road tested
and coolly self-possessed." - Interview Magazine
"[Nabuma Rubberband] is the kind of artistic leap every band hopes to make." - The Boston Globe
Gothenburg's Little Dragon has steadily grown from being the biggest underground secret to international acclaim after four successful albums and touring all over the world. Their energetic live set and unique recording process has made fans out of some of the biggest names in music including Pharrell Williams, Questlove, and OutKast. Gaining popularity among such tastemakers led to collaborations with artists like Big Boi, The Gorillaz, Future, and SBTRKT and more recently with Mac Miller, Kaytranada,Flume and De La Soul. The release of Little Dragon's fourth album, Nabuma Rubberband was a culminating moment in their career after years of building a grassroots fan-base. Musically inspired by the more experimental pockets of Prince's back catalogue, club culture and the vintage Janet Jackson slow jams Yukimi used to listen to wandering around Gothenburg during the unrelenting winter, Nabuma Rubberband has a different feel to previous Little Dragon albums. "When you put some of Janet's really slow stuff on you feel like you're floating," Yukimi explains. "That feeling really influenced me and maybe that's why there are quite a lot of slow jams on the record. In the past we've been a bit self-conscious about making slow jams after 'Twice'. Then we wanted to make dance music which we did with Machine Dreams and then Ritual Union still had a dance vibe, but with this album it wasn't about that. The intention was about whatever we felt strongly about." Yukimi Nagano, Erik Bodin, Fred Wallin and Håkan Wirenstrand make up Little Dragon, the zeitgeist band that blend strands of R&B, electronic and indie into beautifully and meaningfully crafted songs. Over the course of four critically-lauded albums, Little Dragon have established themselves as a band keen to never rest on their laurels - constantly prodding and playing with the boundaries of their sound. The bands fifth album is currently in the making and tentatively planned for 2017.

Combo Chimbita
www.combochimbita.com/
Rooted in Colombia and based in New York, Combo Chimbita lives in the future. After playing together for years, these first-generation New Yorkers—powerhouse vocalist Carolina Oliveros, synth and bassist Prince of Queens, guitarist Niño Lento, and drummer Dilemastronauta—began experimenting with different traditional musical styles during their late night residencies at Barbès in Brooklyn. Exploring the connections between visual identity and improvisational long-form trips, Combo Chimbita came together as a four-piece band after they started encouraging more vocals by Carolina Oliveros, who tightens the rhythm with her guacharaca. “Her voice is so powerful that it leads us in that direction,” says Prince of Queens. Their thunderous first EP, El Corredor del Jaguar, was released in October 2016 on Names You Can Trust and recorded in Combo Chimbita’s DIY studio, El Bunker.

Inspired by Sun Ra’s Afrofuturism, Combo Chimbita champions Tropical Futurism, “the idea that the future doesn’t necessarily have to be this super white Western high-tech Star Wars stuff; that the indigenous ideas and culture of people of color, people of Latin America, can also represent a magical and substantial future. It’s a vision that maybe a lot of people don’t necessarily think about often. The old and deep knowledge that indigenous people have of the land has been neglected for many years as part of capitalism and colonization.”

On the first day of summer, June 21, 2017, Figure & Ground releases Abya Yala, a full-length sonic journey through Tropical Futurism comprised of eight original tracks by Combo Chimbita. Produced by Lily Wen, the band recorded the album live in the same room downstairs at Shahzad Ismaily’s new studio in Brooklyn. Limited to 500 vinyl copies, the 12-inch LP release features a hand-drawn insert with the Abya Yala story and a download card. It is available for pre-order at fgrecords.com.

Glass Animals announced their third North American headline tour of 2017. The band’s riveting live shows have contributed to its incredible global growth, resulting in sold-out excursions throughout the U.K., Europe and Australia. Even a broken ankle couldn’t keep lead singer Dave Bayley from crowd surfing during the band’s Coachella set, cited as a festival highlight by Billboard, which praised Glass Animals’ “dynamic rendition” of “Gooey.” Reviewing the band’s recent sold-out show at London’s Brixton Academy, The Telegraph said, “To watch Glass Animals is to get sucked into a musical maelstrom: they pull you in, fill your head with opalescent oddities, then spit you out, woozy.” Glass Animals’ Spotify Live + Tumblr IRL session is out now. The EP was recorded during a one-of-a-kind Tumblr IRL event at The Village in Los Angeles, which featured not only a performance by the band, but also an immersive collaboration between Glass Animals, multimedia designer Ashten “Whoopi” Winger and Ukrainian Pixel artist Mykola “Myk” Dosenko. This collaboration brought to life the diverse group of fictional characters featured on the new album, How To Be A Human Being, which was inspired by real people the band encountered while touring over the past two years. Glass Animals have continued to bring these characters to life with interactive sites for "Life Itself,” "Youth" and “Pork Soda,” as well as a video game app for "Season 2 Episode 3." How To Be A Human Being (Harvest Records) debuted in the Top 20 of the Billboard 200 and topped the iTunes Alternative Albums chart in the U.S. and Australia. Named as one of the “10 Best Albums of 2016” by USA Today, it has racked up more than 60 million Spotify streams in the U.S. The Associated Press hailed it as “a complex, exciting tapestry of a CD which switches musical styles and reveals new things each time it's played.” Glass Animals’ new single, “Pork Soda,” recently impacted Alternative radio in the U.S., and has already amassed more than eight million streams on Spotify worldwide. NPR Music placed “Life Itself” on its list of “Songs We Love” while “Youth” appeared on their “10 Songs Public Radio Can’t Stop Playing” list. How To Be A Human Being is the follow-up to Glass Animals’ 2014 debut, ZABA, which contained the hits “Gooey” and “Black Mambo.” General admission/standing only. Just added.
