If youâ€™ve somehow missed out on Twin Peaksâ€™ banner year, then youâ€™re cruisinâ€™ for a bruisinâ€™! This year saw them release the absolutely killer Wild Onion (out now on Grand Jury), play festivals galore (Pitchfork, Fun Fun Fun, FYF, and more), and make quite the impression at the CMJ Music Marathon.
Maybe thatâ€™s why the Peak dudes are rollinâ€™ out this excellent road-dog video for album closer â€œMind Frame.â€ Or perhaps itâ€™s because the guys have been tirelessly touring the country since May, never letting up for a moment, and all they know now is the open road.
Today, theyâ€™ve also announced European tour dates, and, upon selling out their largest hometown show to date (Chicagoâ€™s Lincoln Hall), theyâ€™ve decided to one-up themselves by announcing a headlining show at The Metro, a Chicago institution (and also twice the size of Lincoln Hall!), in January, 2015.
Next year has a ton in store for the young foursome, with more festivals and more new music (!!!), so get on those hogs, throw on those leather jackets, rev those engines, and join the Peaks gang [cue â€œBorn To Be Wildâ€].
