Curtail (ex-Annabel, Parting, etc.) Announce Tour Dates

Akron, Ohio’s Curtail released their When The Sway Sets (Friend Club Records) album earlier this Summer (order the album here). Now the band have have announced a run of tour dates that begin next week (see below). The band set in their ways. After forming in 2015, the group continue to evolve, exploring new sonic territory with each release. Curtail are veterans of the DIY-indie/emo community and features Jesse Sloan (Cherry Cola Champions), Ben Hendricks (Annabel, Parting), Eric Sandt (The Ground is Lava), and Dan Corby (Bethesda). It’s the unique combination of experiences that helps inform its work.

While their 2018 Skeletal Lighting debut, All Your Luck, was described as “if Sheryl Crow wrote songs for Archers of Loaf,” their upcoming release, When The Sway Sets, takes things to another dimension. The album builds on the groundwork of its grunge-pop predecessor by adding new layers of atmosphere and fuzzed-out bliss.

Songs like “I.D.K.” and “Through The Gleam” burst with distorted fury, while “Into The Particle” and “Other Plane” draw elements from dream pop and shoegaze. It’s a sound that would make bands like Hum, Smashing Pumpkins, and Jimmy Eat World proud. Classic while current. Stadium rock for 2022.
