The Head and the Heart have announced that the release date of their sophomore album Let’s Be Still will be October 15th. Let’s Be Still is the follow-up to the band’s 2011 self-titled debut released on SubPop Records. That album peaked at #109 on the Billboard 200 album chart.
The album was recorded at Seattle’s Studio Litho with assistance from prior production collaborator Shawn Simmons. Later, the band traversed the country to mix the album in Bridgeport, CT, with Peter Katis, revered for his work with bands such as the National, Interpol, and the Swell Season.
The band will also be taking their brand of folk-rock out on the road, with the announced dates so far beginning on October 21st in Asheville, NC, with more to be announced soon.
