Car Seat Headrest release Matador debut, tour (2015, 2016)

Car Seat Headrest’s Matador Records debut, Teens Of Style is out today, following a recent run of highly acclaimed shows at CMJ Music Marathon (see: The Guardian, Newsweek, Flavorwire).  In addition to previously announced East Coast and Midwest tour dates in 2015, Car Seat Headrest will now bring its confident, charming, dynamic performances to West Coast audiences in 2016, having announced a new run of dates today.

Car Seat Headrest began in 2010 in Will Toledo’s hometown of Leesburg, Virginia. Needing a place of solitude (and soundproofing) where he could record vocals undisturbed, a 17-year-old Toledo set up shop in the family car.   Toledo’s catalogue is sharp, literary, and culturally omnivorous as it touches upon youth and death, love and depression, drunken parties and 2nd century theologians. Ever surprising, his lyrical imagery ranges from playful to sexually frank to sorrowful, often within the same song.
