Rogue Wave is making their live return after three years and will be headlining at Mr. Small’s Theatre onJune 23. They’re on tour June/July supporting their new LP Nightingale Floors (out June 4th via Vagrant Records). Nightingale Floors is the fifth studio album from the band, who formed in Oakland in 2002. It’s full of the melodic indie-pop that Rogue Wave does best, and sees them exploring meditations on live and death – largely influenced by the loss of frontman Zach Schwartz’s father during the writing of the LP. May sound heavy, but it’s not at all: Zach used the experience to more deeply appreciate life, and Rogue Wave is sounding more confident than ever.
