Bishop Allen Shares "Start Again" Video & Announces U.S. Tour Dates

Only two weeks ago, Bishop Allen shared the announcement of their first new album in five years, Lights Out (out August 19th on Dead Oceans), and the stellar first single, "Start Again." Today, they're back with the excellent video for "Start Again," which takes place in the band's hometown of Kingston, NY. Lead singer Justin Rice describes the video as a "Situationist map of Kingston." The band relocated to the Northern locale from Brooklyn four years ago and recorded and mixed all of Lights Out there. Bishop Allen will return to Brooklyn for their record release show at Glasslands on Thursday, August 21st, before embarking on a fall tour in support of Lights Out.
