Montclair, NJ based midwest emos Pinegrove are streaming a live collection of songs under the title “Elsewhere.” You can listen to it below.
The album was recorded during their tour with Kevin Devine, Petal and Julien Baker, and was released on January 20. The album is available for pay-what-you-want, and all profits will be donated to the Southern Poverty Law Center. On the release, Evan Stephens Hall said: We recorded these songs towards the end of our tour with Kevin Devine, Petal, & Julien Baker—the last run of a year in which we played almost 200 shows! This release is intended as a thank you letter to everybody who supported us in any way. It was a challenging year, but So rewarding to meet so many wonderful people, & to learn a little more about what this good country is really like. We have found it to be beautiful the whole way through, populated by excellent people everywhere. We thank you sincerely for your help, your love, & your generosity. This tour took us across the United States through the days leading up to the 2016 US election, election day, & the aftermath. We felt consequently that it’s an especially good time to do what we can to promote love & equality. As a small gesture of commitment to the cause, this album is available for free or donation, & all profits will be donated to the Southern Poverty Law Center. Thanks again.
The band has also announced a run of shows in the coming months, and you can find tour dates and locations below the stream.
