WATCH // Strand of Oaks Shares Summer Tour Dates, Watch Session At Ace Hotel in New York City

Strand of Oaks : 5 at 5 : Ace Hotel New York from Ace Hotel on Vimeo.

Strand of Oaks wants to spend time with you this summer. Every one of you. Starting this month the band will make their way across the country in continued support of last year’s highly-acclaimed, HEAL. Strand of Oaks’ already exhilirating live show will add decibels in the form of a guitar helmed by eastcoaster (and new band member) Carter Tanton. The band’s spring tour resumes in Chattanooga, TN on April 16 with a handful of dates in support of Jason Isbell. Notable festival stops on their route include Middle of the Map, Hangout, Sasquatch, Governors Ball, Bonnaroo, Lollapallooza, Osheaga, and Outside Lands – so almost all of ‘em. Strand of Oaks will also play support to Alabama Shakes and Ryan Adams.

Since we last spoke, frontman Tim Showalter coaxed some truth from Father John Misty’s I Love You, Honeybear for The Talkhouse and paid a visit to NYC’s Ace Hotel for their 5 at 5 series. Catch a glimpse of his inner Viking on the road, full list of dates below.

ALBUM RELEASE // Strand of Oaks ‘HEAL’ Out Now Worldwide, On Tour Now



The new Strand of Oaks album HEAL is out now.

On previous Strand of Oaks albums, Tim Showalter displayed his knack for moving and dark folk and now on HEAL we see growth and change into an immersive sound with loud, punching guitar riffs and synth-heavy hooks akin to his recent touring show. This is rock in its most raw form, unapologetic and full of deep emotion. Showalter says “I’m inspired by bands that go the distance, to a dangerous place…there’s an uncertainty to ‘HEAL’ that makes me nervous and excited at the same time. It’s sad, but it sounds like a celebration, like I’m crying and laughing and sticking both middle fingers in the air all at the same time.”

Get the new album now via iTunes, Amazon, SC Distribution, and your local record store.

Critics praise the new album:

“Folk songwriter Strand Of Oaks heals on rock ‘n’ roll masterpiece”

- A.V. CLUB | A

“overwhelmingly epic and unashamedly ambitious”

- UNCUT | ★★★★

“Epic…it’s easy to hear how it might serve as curative to a new generation of songwriters.”

- NPR

“Glorious…matches Springsteen’s phrasing with the Replacements’ wounded alt-rock.”

- SPIN

See Tim and the band on tour starting this this Thursday in NYC at Mercury Lounge with tickets here. See the rest of the tour dates below.
