TEEN shares second single “Tokyo” and announce tour dates

January 5, 2016 10:24 am

Happy New Year! TEEN is starting the year off the right way with their second single, “Tokyo.” You can stream it now via NPR. The track is from their forthcoming album Love Yes, pre-orders available on the Carpark shop & iTunes.

“The chirping sounds and sterling voices on “Tokyo” disguise an all-too-real story about a crumbling marriage and infidelity. Teeny Lieberson’s lyrics take a dramatic leap forward as she analyzes the complexities of aging relationships, sensuality, and misogyny that all too often goes unchecked.”

The band will also be hitting the road this winter in support of the new album. Full list of dates and ticket links can be found here.
February 14th – Brooklyn, NY – Union Pool
February 16th – Philadelphia, PA – Ortlieb’s
February 17th – Baltimore, MD – Metro Gallery
February 18th – Pittsburgh, PA – Club Cafe
February 19th – Louisville, KY – Zanzabar
February 20th – Lakewood, OH – Mahall’s
February 21st – Chicago, IL – Hideout Inn
February 22nd – Cincinnati, OH – Monday Night at the Comet

TEEN announces new album + shares first single

November 16, 2015 11:46 am

TEEN has announced the release of their third full-length album Love Yes. The record will be out February 19th, 2016. Stream the first single from the album, “All About Us,” via Noisey.

Pre-orders are now available on the Carpark shop & iTunes. An instant download of “All About Us” is available when you pre-order the record. The first 40 physical orders will receive an autographed lyric poster.

With Love Yes, the band explores the disharmony and empowerment that both sexuality and spirituality can create within the modern woman’s psyche. Universal ideas of loyalty, pleasure, purity, power, aging, and love are confronted with a knowable specificity. There is a quality of wholesomeness, but also an edge—a kind of wise anger and electricity.

Thanks to our friends at Madewell who recently profiled teen. Find the feature on their blog.
