ALBUM RELEASE // Califone’s ‘Stitches’ Out Today, Touring Through October

After playing a fantastic Labor Day in-store at Nashville‘s iconic record store Grimey’s yesterday, Califone‘s new album, Stitches, is finally out today in stores and online!

Stitches is the band’s 7th album, a followup to 2009′s All My Friends Are Funeral Singers, and the band’s first completely made outside Chicago. Califone’s Tim Rutili explains that the writing and recording began in Southern California and then finished the album in Arizona and Texas saying “those dry landscapes and beaches and hills and shopping malls all made it into the music”. Enchanting, complex, and emotionally driven songs will satisfy diehard fans while bringing new fans to Califone’s established sound and storied history.

You can get Stitches on iTunes, Amazon, your local record store, and from SC Distribution.

WATCH // Califone Debut Interactive Video for “Stitches” on Tumblr, Start Living Room Tour August 21st

In a unique approach to a music video, Califone worked with filmmaker Braden King and programmer Jeff Garneau using Tumblr to debut a beautiful and haunting interactive video of the new album’s title track “Stitches”. Garneau programmed the video to randomly pull images and animated GIFs from a previously selected set of Tumblr sites to provide a truly distinctive experience every time the viewer watches the video. Head over to Califone’s Tumblr HERE to find and experience the hidden video that Nate Auerbach, Tumblr’s Music Evangelist, calls, “deeper than an album jacket and more intense than a music video, because it is living and breathing.”

Read more about the video below with links to preorder the new album, Stitches, and upcoming tour dates.
