2016 has been a busy year for Dear Blanca. Between opening gigs for Bernie Sanders and Delta Spirit’s Matthew Logan Vasquez, the band has embarked on two national tours, traded Instagram shout-outs with Killer Mike, and just performed at Birmingham’s Secret Stages Festival, all before heading west later this year for a run of fall tour dates. This flurry of activity follows the release of March’s widely-praised EP, I Don’t Mean to Dwell – recorded with N.C. producer Scott Solter (St. Vincent, Spoon, the Mountain Goats).
If that weren’t enough – earlier this spring, the trio returned to the studio with Charleston’s Wolfgang Zimmerman to record their second album of 2016, To Tell A Half-Truth. A stunningly poignant collection of music unlike anything the band has yet produced, you can now stream To Tell A Half-Truth‘s lead single, “Out Of View” below – premiered today via MySpace.
Dear Blanca’s To Tell A Half-Truth is out September 16th.
