These United States debut, Stage Mass Live Experiment

The opening pulses of “First Sight,” may fool you into thinking you are floating in oblivion, but soon vertigo will set in as the shimmering cymbals, acoustic plucks, and well-in-gear phrasing take this shaker somewhere else entirely. The song is from These United States debut release A Picture of the Three of us at the Gate to the Garden of Eden, coming out March 4th. In support of the new record, the band will set off on a nationwide tour playing 33 shows in 33 cities…as 33 different line-ups. These United States will meet with a different collaborating band the afternoon of every show, work and re-work their set according to the host band’s sonic desires, and perform for each audience a one-of-a-kind set. The kick-off show will feature DC psych-folk collective The Federal Reserve playing host to the first of These United States’ 33 collisions.
