It’s been over five years since Brooklyn-based indie-pop band Bishop Allen have dropped a record, so Lights Out, set to be released on August 15, is being welcomed by fans. The band let us listen to “Start Again” (see that one below) and “Why I Had To Go”, so we’re thinking that this album is the perfect return to the indie scene. To support the new record, Bishop Allen is hitting the road—they’ll start off in Kingston, NY on August 16 at the Chronogram Block Party. From New York, they’ll move to Boston, MA; Brooklyn, NY (at The Glasslands); Philadelphia, PA; Washington, DC; Atlanta, GA; Jacksonville, FL; Austin, TX; Dallas, TX; Norman, OK; St. Louis, MO; Champaign, IL (for the Pygmalion Festival); Seattle, WA; Los Angeles, CA; Phoenix, AZ; and Denver, CO for a final show at Hi-Dive on October 10. For more information about ticketing, visit the band’s website.

Hailing from the city that never sleeps, Bishop Allen is comprised of core members (and Harvard roommates) Justin Rice and Christian Rudder, along with Darbie Rice, Keith Poulson, and Michael Tapper. Formed in 2003, the band has released three full-length albums and 12 EPs.
