The Higher State: album and live dates

by Modculture 14 March, 2008

Fine purveyors of West Coast-style garage folk-rock The Higher State are set to release their second long player Darker By The Day.

The Folkestone band, featuring ex-members of The Embrooks and The Mystreated, continue to be the best writers of authentic Byrds-esque, mid-’60s San-Francisco-scene rock around today. They have always drawn quite a live following, and are regularly invited to play ’60s festivals around the world. Hear the band play out material from the new album at these upcoming UK and European shows:

London George Tavern (April 5th)
Rennes France ‘Mondo Bizaaro’ (17th)
Le Harve France The Greenish Pub (18th)
Darmstadt Germany ‘Beat Explosion’ (19th)
Krefeld Germany Kulturrampe (20th)
Liverpool ‘International Pop Overthrow’ (24th May)
Rotterdam Holland ‘Primitive Festival’ (27th June)

Darker By The Day is released next month on Greek label Dr. Mushroom’s Optical Illusion. Pre-order your copy via their website here. To hear The Higher State visit their Myspace page here.
