Dry The River
Critically acclaimed UK band, Dry the River, are touring in support of their debut album, Shallow Bed, which was released on RCA Records earlier this year. The album was produced by Peter Katis (Interpol and The National) and recorded in Connecticut.

The band has spent the first half of 2012 touring all over the US alongside acts such as Bowerbirds and Alabama Shakes and also headlining their own largely sold-out US tour. Festival appearances so far include Lollapalooza, SXSW, and Sasquatch, with more to come including Austin City Limits in October.

Billboard.Biz claimed, “Eyes were glued to the band during their doo-wop moments when Liddle, Taylor and Miller sang harmonies,” while The Village Voice stated, “openers Dry The River brought their more-rock-than-folk to the table and almost upstaged the headliners.” They were recently featured on NPR's nationally-syndicated All Things Considered and were voted one of Rolling Stone’s “Top 25 acts to see at SXSW”.

Dry the River has been enjoying an incredible run of critical success in their native UK by landing on the super exclusive BBC Sound of 2012 list, hitting #1 on the NME Chart and being named one of British GQ’s “100 Best Things in the World Right Now” and Q Magazine’s “Faces of 2012.”

The latest US single "The Chambers & The Valves" is accompanied by a whimsical video that has resulted in another flurry on online activity for the band. They return to our shores this fall for another headlining tour.
