Let's Listen To That Awesome New Calexico Single

Posted By on Tue, Oct 17, 2017 at 11:00 AM


Calexico has a new album, The Thread That Keeps Us, coming out in January, which makes us even more excited to travel to Phoenix for this week's Lost Lake Festival so we can hear some of the new material live.

Bandleader Joey Burns says The first single, "End of the World With You," is "sort of a love song set in troubled times."

Here's the bulletin from Joey:

We have some exciting news to share. This past spring and summer of 2017, the band and I have been busy working on a new album that's taken us to the Pacific coast of Marin, California and to John's hometown of El Paso, Texas; we also did some work in Tucson. Today we are excited to announce the release of the new album. It's titled The Thread That Keeps Us and is set to be released on January 26, 2018.

The first song we are sharing is called "End of the World with You." Inspired musically by some of my favorite indie rock bands when growing up in California (such as Pavement, Sebadoh, and The Replacements), the track is sort of a love song set in troubled times. We've made a lyric video with aerial footage from our travels from El Paso to Northern California filmed by Craig Schumacher and edited by Jonny Sanders. If you look real close you can see John, Craig and I at the very end waving hello.

You can pre-order the album from all the normal places here. We are also partnering with PledgeMusic this time around to come up with some special exclusive items like handwritten lyrics, personalized postcards from the road and signed test pressing copies that we will offer in addition to signed copies of the new album, hats, tees, and more. Make sure to check it out as some of these items are very limited!

We're going to start the tour for The Thread That Keeps Us in March with European and UK dates followed by shows in North America in April to be announced soon. The European dates will go on sale beginning Friday, and you can purchase tickets here. We're really looking forward to seeing you all and playing these new songs for you. Thanks again for all your years of love and support.
