“Tennis have broadened their horizons just the right amount, adding rock’n’roll muscle and
a more purely pop clarity.”—Pitchfork
“Bold, bluesy, and instantly unmistakable.”—Esquire 
Pitchfork Advance is now exclusively streaming Tennis’ highly-anticipated upcoming album Ritual In Repeat, due out September 9 on Communion Records. NPR’s “All Songs Considered” recently premiered new track “Night Vision” declaring that the album is the, “best record Tennis has done so far.” Additionally, Time just premiered the acoustic video for “Bad Girls” saying, “the LP blends catchy classic rock riffs with an indie pop sensibility and a dreamy lo-fi disco sound. Think: Haim’s Days Are Gone or Fleet Foxes covering ABBA.” Stream the full album via Pitchfork Advance HERE, watch the video for “Bad Girls” HERE and listen to “Night Vision” HERE.  The band is set to tour North America this fall in support of the new LP kicking off September 18 with dates in major markets including New York and Los Angeles. See full tour dates below.
The band worked in three seperate cities with three well-known producers on the new album. They returned to Nashville to work withPat Carney (The Black Keys) on five of the album’s tracks including “Never Work For Free.”  They also worked with Jim Eno(Spoon) in his Austin Studio on “Bad Girls”and lastly Richard Swift (The Shins) in Portland, who collaborated with the band on four songs including “Timothy.” The band told Relix, “as we’ve grown, we are trying to challenge ourselves and transform musically.” See full track listing below.
Tennis is Denver couple Alaina Moore and Patrick Riley. The duo began writing music together as a way to document the history of their time living aboard a sailboat. The result was their first release, Cape Dory. Moore and Riley followed Cape Dory with Young and Old, which The New Yorker described as “winsome as it is ebullient,” and debuted #1 on Billboard’s Heatseeker Chart and #1 on CMJTop 200, where it remained for three straight weeks The album also debuted on Soundscan’s “New Artist Chart” at #1 remaining there for nine consecutive weeks. The band performed on “The Late Show with David Letterman,” “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno,” “Conan” and “Last Call with Carson Daly.” Twenty thirteen brought Small Sound EP and the band’s Spring tour with Haim.
