Now Now Soon To Be Now On Tour

Trans- Records and Now, Now are happy to announce dates for a month long tour this spring with The Naked And Famous. The tour will come on the heels of the release of Threads March 6th, and an appearance at SXSW 2012.

This past June, Now, Now, composed of Cacie Dalager (Vocals, Guitar), Jess Abbott (Vocals, Guitar), and Brad Hale (Drums, Synth) packed up their van and drove 1800 miles across North America to record with Redekopp in Vancouver, BC. During the recording the band could tell they were hitting their stride for the first time. "We killed ourselves over Threads," notes Dalager. "That sounds dramatic, but everything about it was excruciating in a good way. Every little idea was worked to its best." It was earlier that spring that they'd begun to solidify a relationship with Trans- Records founder and Death Cab For Cutie guitarist/producer Chris Walla, who had become a fan of the band through their earlier releases after San Francisco's John Vanderslice recommended he listen to the band's debut album Cars.

With the help of Trans- Now, Now are excited for excited at the prospects of reaching new fans and new heights in 2012.
