The Long Winters are pleased to announce more tour dates in celebration of the 10th anniversary of their indie rock cornerstone When I Pretend To Fall. As previously announced The Long Winters, comprised of the original 2003 touring members John Roderick, Sean Nelson, Eric Corson and Michael Schilling, will headline the second show in the Barsuk Records four-day 15th Anniversary celebration on Friday, November 8th at The Neptune Theatre. However, fans of the band in New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco and Portland won't need to make the trip to Seattle to see this special performance, as the band has announced a short run of dates around the Barsuk 15th Anniversary celebration, with Seattle song-writer Andy Fitts filling in for Corson. In addition to The Long Winters' When I Pretend To Fall dates, Roderick will be opening a select few west coast dates on The Decemberists front-man Colin Meloy's recently announced solo tour. ·read less·

The Long Winters have definitely put the 'long' back in 'taking a long time to make a new album', and we're not complaining (too much) because we know that whenever it's done it'll be great. However, we were very excited to learn that John Roderick recently recorded a very special acoustic version of not moving to portland with his and our friend, the amazing and talented Kathleen Edwards, and that he has donated the recording to the excellent and worthy local charity project GIVE Seattle. You can watch a charming video that John made for the song and learn more about the project on the GIVE Seattle site, but basically, for a very reasonable price, you can get exclusive songs from a ton of Seattle bands and songwriters, including Barsuk family like Pearly Gate Music, David Bazan, and Ben Gibbard. ·read less·
