Kurt Vile Announces Tour and New Album b’lieve i’m goin down

Philly native and indie rock musician Kurt Vile has created a sixth studio album, titled b’lieve i’m goin down. This album will be a follow-up to his critically acclaimed Wakin on a Pretty Daze. His record label, Matador Records, released a promo video for the new album (shown below). Only a minute long, the video shows Vile walking alone in a southwestern desert, with a jazzy sax sound in the background. Perhaps this is a hint of what influences will appear on the album?

Vile is already heralded as a Philly superstar, even having his own holiday. The anticipation for his new material has only intensified now. While there is no formal release date yet, Kurt Vile told Rolling Stone in April that he wants to release some new music this Fall.

Vile will also launch a world tour starting in October. He is scheduled to play an all ages show at the Union Transfer in Philadelphia on October 9. Tickets go on sale this Friday 6/19 here!
