February 10, 2014 EISLEY ANNOUNCES SPRING HEADLINE TOUR WITH MERRIMENT
This Spring, Eisley will hit the road in support of their fourth full-length album, Currents.
Joining the band on the road will be Rory Records’Merriment, who recently released a two-song digital single of new songs – and will next release their debut full-length album this Spring.
Along with the tour announcement, the two Tyler, TX-based bands are also offering a free tour sampler via Bandcamp, which includes recordings from Eisley’s Pandora Whiteboard Session. A tracklisting is available below, and the sampler can be downloaded HERE.
Currents was released in May 2013, as the band’s follow-up to their Equal Vision debut The Valley, released in 2011 and a five track EP, Deep Space, released in 2012.
Eisley also recently released a music video, directed by Mutemath’s Darren King, for the album’s title track, which can be viewed on Youtube.
Eisley is comprised of Sherri DuPree-Bemis (vocals, guitar), Stacy DuPree-King (vocals, keys), Chauntelle DuPree-D’Agostino (vocals, guitar), Weston DuPree (drums) and Garron DuPree (bass). Merriment is comprised of the DuPrees’ youngest siblings, Collin (guitar) and Christie DuPree (vocals, guitar).
