Rogue Wave Release New Track "Siren's Song", Nightingale Floors Now Available for Pre-Order
Stereogum has just premiered Rogue Wave's new track "Siren's Song"! Click
HERE to give it a listen. "Siren's Song" appears on the band's upcoming fifth studio album Nightingale Floors out June 4th via Vagrant.
Nightingale Floors is now available for pre-order on iTunes. Click HERE to pre-order and you’ll receive “College” instantly and four bonus tracks on release day.
The upcoming 10-track effort captures a newly reignited energy from frontman Zach Rogue and primary creative collaborator Pat Spurgeon. The songs recall the band's indie-rock and folk-like tendencies from its first three albums-2003's Out Of The Shadow (re-released in 2004), 2005's Descended Like Vultures, and 2007's Asleep At Heaven's Gate-but also included an experimental edge that the members have always been interested in but never really explored on record. Rogue Wave's Nightingale Floors is secure in its sound and brimming with confidence.
Rogue Wave previously announced a summer tour in support of the new album that kicks off June 12th in Salt Lake City. Supporting the band will be New York's Caveman and Seattle's Hey, Marseilles on select dates. Click HERE for all dates and ticket links.

Fossil Collective Sign to Vagrant, Debut Album Tell Where I Lie Out Now
We are very excited to welcome Yorkshire, UK's Fossil Collective to the Vagrant roster! The band’s debut album Tell Where I Lie is now available in the US through a partnership between Vagrant and Dirty Hit Records. The album was released on April 8, 2013 and debuted at #1 on Billboard’s New Artist chart as well as at #2 on Billboard’s Heatseekers chart. Tell Where I Lie has received international critical acclaim for the group’s layers of rich harmonies and delicately melodic contemporary sounds. Listen to the single "Let It Go" below and click HERE to purchase the album on iTunes.
Fossil Collective formed in 2011 and consists of multi-instrumentalists David Fendick and Jonny Hooker. "We were listening to the kind of music we grew up with (Neil Young, Fleetwood Mac, The Beach Boys, Simon & Garfunkel, James Taylor)," Jonny reminisces. "We decided there and then to try and capture the essence of that traditional song craft, to strip everything back to the song, lyrics and melody." Added Dave, "it was actually very liberating to be able to do that."
Fossil Collective will be touring throughout North America beginning in late May supporting The Boxer Rebellion. Dates begin in Montreal on May 23 and currently wrap in Cambridge, Mass. on June 22. The band is currently wrapping up a 21-date UK tour with festival appearances scheduled for later this summer.
