The Twilight Sad Share New Song ‘I/m Not Here [missing face]’ And Announce 2018 Tour

Scottish post-punk outfit The Twilight Sad have been busy playing festivals in the UK, including the Robert Smith-curated Meltdown Festival. Now, the band returns with their new single “I/m Not Here [missing face].” It’s their first new music since signing to Mogwai’s label, Rock Action. Speaking about the song, Andy MacFarlane said:

“I was attempting to play ‘Ogives’ by Erik Satie, but I’m really shit at the piano so it didn’t happen, but I came up with the music using those chord shapes. So from my perspective, it’s a bad cover version of that piece of music.”

Check out the song below.

The band also revealed dates for their fall tour. North American shows kick off October 9 in Los Angeles, CA and wrap up November 3 in Washington, DC. After these dates, the band will play Europe starting November 10 in Paris and finishing up November 29 in Edinburgh, UK. Tickets go on sale Thursday, July 12. Those who sign up for the band’s mailing list will have access to an exclusive pre-sale on Wednesday, July 11. Sign up here.
