Petal share "Sooner," tour (2015)

Run For Cover Records announced today that they will release Shame, the debut LP from Pennsylvania’s Petal on October 23.  Noisey is streaming “Sooner”, the first track off the album today, saying of singer/songwriter Kiley Lotz, “Petal sounds like the space where Lemuria and Waxahatchee would meet; the crossroads between listlessness, earnestness and endurance.” Shame is currently available for pre-order via Run For Cover, and Petal will embark on tours this fall with labelmates Tigers Jaw and Captain We’re Sinking.

Written over the course of the past three years, the songs on Shame were written with the underlying theme of dealing with mental illness and its effects on others.  Discovering through her writing that everyone has shame and guilt, Lotz began to wonder if the world might be different if everyone were more open and willing to accept help.
