Hiatus Kaiyote Announces New Album and Tour Dates

Hiatus Kaiyote has announced their North American tour for their new album, Choose Your Weapon, which comes out May 5th. Kicking off at New York's Gramercy Theatre, the tour will circle around to venues such as The Roxy Theater in Los Angeles and The Double Door in Chicago. The band will also be performing at SXSW later this month.

Their first single, "Breathing Underwater," is already available. On the album, front woman Nai Palm says:
"'Breathing Underwater' is homage to the different examples of love and compassion in the world that are beyond the limitation of romance. I used are imagery to depict this - for example, the Jericho rose (African resurrection plant) can survive dormant without water for over a hundred years. If it rains, it can bloom within minutes showcasing the immense power of nurture. It's also a tribute to my musical hero Stevie Wonder."

About Choose Your Weapon:

Choose Your Weapon is an 18-track album about the band's self-created ecosystem, containing songs that embody the mini-cinematic soundscape. The album was conceived on stages worldwide, compared to their first album, Tawk Tomahawk, which was made in a studio with musicians who were just getting to know each other.
