Smith Westerns Announce New Single 'Idol' Released September 16th 2013

This summer has already seen the release of Soft Will, the lushly realized third album from Chicago rockersSmith Westerns, and their best and most accomplished record to date.

A gorgeous leap forward from the stomping glam rock landscape established in both their self-titled debut and breakthrough album "Dye it Blonde", the Chris Coady produced record is crammed full of skyscraping choruses, chest-bursting melodies and swoonsome hooks, both a nostalgic celebration of youth and all its flaws and foibles. "Idol", the gorgeous new single from the album, encapsulates this perfectly, being a gently lilting and instantly infectious paean to fruitless hero worship, as Cullen Omori sadly sings, "I held you up to the light/ to see if you had a summer night". The Sandy Kim directed video only serves to heighten these sensations of distance and alienation.

Now, following appearances at the likes of Coachella and so on this year, Smith Westerns will finally be making their way to the UK and Europe for a string of highly anticipated headline shows, beginning with a gig at the legendary 100 Club in London before going on to take in shows in Manchester, Paris and more. Make sure not to miss what are sure to be stellar gigs by one of the best and brightest new bands around right now.
