The Low Anthem prepare Oh My God, Charlie Darwin

Providence, Rhode Island trio The Low Anthem will release upcoming album, Oh My God, Charlie Darwin, comes on June 9th. The album had a limited independent release last year, and now has an updated track sequence and packaging, with remastering by Gateway’s Bob Ludwig. Oh My God, Charlie Darwin was co-produced by The Low Anthem and Jesse Lauter. The band, Lauter, and several friends went to Block Island, RI, for ten days in January 2008. They brought recording equipment along on the ferry ride and made the album in an empty summer cabin. Among the 27 instruments on the record are zither, pump organ, Tibetan singing bowl, and an oil drum. The Low Anthem comprises Jocie Adams, Ben Knox Miller, and Jeff Prystowsky; Adams plays clarinet, Miller plays guitar and sings (and is the group’s principle songwriter), and Prystowsky plays bass. The three met while studying at Brown University in Providence, RI, and have been playing together for nearly two years. (Before Adams joined the group, an earlier incarnation of The Low Anthem released What the Crow Brings in 2007.)

The Low Anthem spends the rest of this month playing the northeastern seaboard with Ray Lamontagne and Elvis Perkins before performing at this year’s Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival. A headlining show at New York City’s Bowery Ballroom in has just been added for Monday, June 15. Tickets are $13/$15 (day of show) and are on sale today.
