Daughn Gibson Heading Out on Tour This Fall

TOUR DATES

Oct. 29 – Chicago, IL – The Empty Bottle
Oct. 31 – St Louis, MO – Apop Records
Nov. 01 – Lawrence, KS – Replay Lounge
Nov. 03 – Austin, TX – Fun Fun Fun Fest
Nov. 04 – Austin, TX – Fun Fun Fun Fest

Nov. 06 – Oxford, MS – Lamar Lounge
Nov. 07 – Atlanta, GA – The Earl (w/ Earth)

Daughn Gibson’s debut album, All Hell, earned praise from Pitchfork, SPIN, FILTER, Austin Chronicle, Baltimore City Paper, Philadelphia Weekly, San Francisco Bay Guardian, Brooklyn Vegan, Tiny Mix Tapes, The Needle Drop, and more. All Hell is out now on White Denim Records.

Pitchfork included All Hell in its “Overlooked Albums of 2012” feature, and said: “Gibson’s excellent debut heavily relies on crackly samples of old country and Christian gospel records, and he borrows from those musical forms’ history of storytelling, too, a narrative gift most directly channeled on the father-daughter-episode-of-“COPS” lament “Tiffany Lou.” None of these elements would carry as much haunting emotional resonance without the presence of Gibson’s voice, a deep, cavernous instrument that draws flashpoint comparisons in sound to both Scott Walker and James Blake. More than anything, Gibson’s debut sounds warm, fully realized, and lived-in. It’s as if he’s been doing this for years, and it inspires hope that he continues to do so for years to come.”

Meanwhile SPIN included All Hell in their “40 Best Albums of the Year…So Far.” SPIN says, “On his solo debut, All Hell, he’s able to work all sorts of dark magic, uncovering a lonesome, nocturnal space that’s shared by tears-in-your-beer, end-of-the-world jukebox country and sample-based, post-Burial electronic pop. He’s a honky-tonk spaceman who, at one time, earned his daily wage as a truck driver. He sounds like it.”

Daughn Gibson will tour in support of All Hell for the remainder of 2012. On October 29, he will hit the road for a short tour, which begins in Chicago, IL at the Empty Bottle and ends on November 7 in Atlanta, GA at the Earl. The latter trek also includes a performance in Austin, TX at Fun Fun Fun Fest (Nov. 3-4).

Daughn Gibson Signs to Sub Pop

Sub Pop are absolutely thrilled to announce that Daughn Gibson has joined their label roster. The charismatic crooner and sound sculptor, will release his label debut worldwide on Sub Pop in 2013. To commemorate the occasion Gibson has recorded a new song that demonstrates his striking and deft facility with sample-based music. Daughn’s new “Reach Into the Fire” samples the Shabazz Palaces track “An echo from the hosts that profess infinitum” and the Tiny Vipers songs “Slow Motion” and “Life on Earth” to create something wholly his own. You should download that track now.

More on Daughn Gibson:
Daughn Gibson hails from the Cumberland Valley town of Carlisle, Pennsylvania. The charismatic crooner and sound sculptor’s music sets his subversively witty and colorful tales against an engaging blend of electronic, country and blues. Gibson’s spirited, DIY approach is informed by his time spent playing in punk and metal bands and stints as a cross-country truck driver. His deep baritone adds to the allure, which posits the handsome balladeer in territory explored by the greats. He’s earned comparisons to the likes of Lee Hazelwood, Scott Walker and Arthur Russell, and contemporary artists like Nicolas Jaar, Magnetic Fields and James Blake (read more at Sub Pop).
