Stream Twin Peaks' New Record, Wild Onion, On Pitchfork Advance; New Tour Dates Added!

The time has come to peel back the layers of this Wild Onion! That's right, the new record from Chicago youth brigade Twin Peaks is now available to hear at Pitchfork Advance.  Coming off a talk-of-the-town level performance at the Pitchfork Music Festival and inventing new ways of rocking out in a wheelchair, the boys are excited to share their latest recorded endeavor, which will see release on August 5th via Grand Jury. It is a fully formed artistic statement by the talented foursome, who we witness grow as young men and songwriters before our eyes. It's an album with blitzkrieg rockers and restrained, soulful croons. Growing up doesn't mean losing a bit of the band's anarchic nature, though, as witnessed throughout this revelatory sophomore effort. Listen up and become a believer.


Twin Peaks will be taking to the road to celebrate the release of Wild Onion, with a headline tour that begins this month and now includes dates through November.  Tour highlights include the band's largest show to date at Lincoln Hall in Chicago, as well as festival stops at FYF FestivalPygmalion Festival and Fun Fun Fun Fest.  Check out this video from Pitchfork Festival for a glimpse into what a Twin Peaks show is all about.

"If you were wondering what the most badass set at Pitchfork Music Fest was, I have the answer...Twin Peaks. Hands down. Everyone else could be petting kittens and playing the uke for all I care." - MTV News
