Evangelicals

The Evening Descends... and worlds collide. First you hear the prodigious musical skill: the deft guitar work, the clever pop sensibility, the wild arrangements. But then on other end of the spectrum there is the innocent and youthful charm of a trio of lost boys who seem to have no business making music with such maturity and sophistication. Taken together, you have Evangelicals, a wholly demented ensemble from Norman, OK. Dabbling in glam, slipping in a little funk and soul, drinking the psychedelic Kool-aid, blasting the synths, cranking up the guitars, and wrapping it all up with a dose of pop smarts, The Evening Descends is the first great album of 2008.

Evangelicals Announce Seven Week Tour with Headlights, Digital Single for “Skeleton Man”

Following the January 22nd release of The Evening Descends, Norman, OK’s Evangelicals are headed out on a seven week cross country trek with Headlights. Playing towns big and small, Evangelicals are bringing their unforgettable psychedelic joyride to a club near you very soon. Taking the prodigious musical skill and clever pop sensibility of their recorded work and pushing it into overdrive, Evangelicals live is not just something to listen to, but to fully experience.

We are also pleased to announce that Other Music’s digital store is exclusively selling the single for “Skeleton Man,” which features two non-album b-sides that will not appear on The Evening Descends. Evangelicals revisit themes from The Evening Descends, lifting a melody here, a lyric there, giving away just enough to wet your appetite for the main course.

Skeleton Man track list:
1. Skeleton Man
2. Skeleton Man’s Bone Crushing Depression (If I Get Well)
3. Strange Visions

Evangelicals on Spin.com and Pitchfork

Spin.com had the following to say today when featuring Evangelicals as the “Band of the Day”: “Tearing down the day song-by-song as The Evening Descends, Evangelicals draw from their Okie idols the Flaming Lips, using everything from pop, soul, prog, and psychedelia to create arrangements that bleed into open skies, sounding like the weird uncanny cousins of Band of Horses.” Read the rest at the link below. They also included a link to “Skeleton Man” which is the first single from the Evangelicals January 22nd release, The Evening Descends.

Pitchfork also posted “Skeleton Man,” calling it “a big, memorable, and slightly strange rock anthem.” More kind words and the MP3 are available at the link below.
