After playing over 140 shows to support their 2012 release, Dye It Blonde, the members of Smith Westerns returned to their hometown of Chicago, IL to write and record the material that wound up comprising Dye it Blonde’s follow up, Soft Will which Mom & Pop Records released over the summer to early critical praise. 

The band will be hitting the road during November, and the tour will include stops at Webster Hall on November 11th; Boston, MA; Syracuse, NY; Philadelphia, PA; Washington, DC; Detroit, MI; Columbus, OH; Madison, WI; and Chicago, IL with Sky Ferreira. And just in time for their tour, they’ll be releasing a special 7" single which features “3am Spiritual (Basement Recording). Interestingly, the single reminds me quite a bit of the Stone Roses – thanks in part to the guitars fed through copious amount of reverb, and the dreamy psychedelic reverie feel of the song.
