Pillars and Tongues – New Single, New Video, New Tour

Pillars and Tongues find peace in change – constantly in motion and thoughtfully redirecting their sonic trajectory. Even songs that have been recorded and released are not safe from their restless deconstructionist tendencies. In this spirit we are pleased to present the reworked “Palms To Tell.” Now entitled “(Laid) Palms To Tell,” this re-envisioning of The Pass and Crossings standout track showcases the mercurial nature of their songwriting. Though it is most definitely the same song, the new instrumentation brings to light new interpretations and provokes new emotions. Alongside the reworked track is a new music video (their second video from The Pass and Crossings – watch the first one here) directed by Alex Babbit. Babbit has created a seriously beautiful and nostalgic pairing for the new arrangement, which No Fear of Pop described as, “gorgeously colorful and aptly arcane.”

As a companion to the new video and a preview for their tour, Pillars and Tongues has also released a free three-song digital single also titled (Laid) Palms to Tell.  The new single includes the reworked track along with two others, all previously unreleased. The single is available for download at the their bandcamp.
