A Hawk and A Hacksaw
A Hawk and A Hacksaw
Following their extensive European tour, A Hawk And A Hacksaw has announced a North American tour this fall. The shows will be promoting the release of AHAAH’s fourth album, Délivrance, which was released August 25. The band already created a buzz in the US earlier this year with support slots for Wilco and Andrew Bird and appearances at SXSW, we are keen to see how the 15 dates they have lined up will build on this!

Support comes from Damon & Naomi who are celebrating their release, The Sub Pop Years, a compilation of their records over the course of four albums on the venerable Sub Pop label.

See below for details on the dates…

AHAAH’s core duo of Jeremy Barnes and Heather Trost have also made videos to accompany tracks from Délivrance. The videos were filmed by James Longmire in the band’s native New Mexico earlier this year. The live tracks recorded include ‘I Am Not A Gambling Man’ and ‘The Man Who Sold His Beard’, the former can be found here: http://www.vimeo.com/4571124

On Délivrance:

**** The Guardian

**** Uncut

“one hell of a street party” **** Top Of The World, Songlines

“A Hawk And A Hacksaw are doing entirely their own thing, and that should be applauded, loudly” 9/10 Clash

“underneath all the noise and frenetic cross-fertilising of old and new, East and West, an obvious musical intelligence is at work. Happily, it also clearly recognises the value of fun. As riots go, this is one you’ll enjoy finding yourself caught in the middle of.” BBC Music

“Délivrance is a booze-stained postcard with unusual postmarks and “wish you were here” written in bold on the back” 8/10 NME

“The gloriously sprightly energy of Délivrance is so ebullient and full of character that by the time it’s over you feel like you’ve caught a glimpse of the type of joyful festivity that always feels most rewarding after a long journey.” 7.8 Pitchfork

“Drawing on various Balkan strains the results blend klezmer, polka, gipsy folk music and various forms into a dizzy whirlwind of dance music” The Independent

“evocative, aromatic delights. A triumph of ensemble playing” The Wire

“their most confident yet…rich, hugely rewarding” Metro
