With their latest album ‘Civilian’ released to widespread applaud earlier this year, their latest single ‘Holy Holy’ currently in heavy radio rotation and having recently sold out their second ever London headline show in the blink of an eye, Baltimore’s WYE OAK have just confirmed lots more European tour dates and are giving ‘Holy Holy’ away for free.

This will be their fourth trip to the UK this year, having tour with Johnny, Cold War Kids and most recently flying by London for an avid, packed out London crowd which marked just how far the duo of Jenn Wasner and Andy Stack have come in 2011.

To celebrate, the band are giving away single & current hit at radio, ‘Holy Holy’.

‘Civilian’, released earlier this year through City Slang, is Wye Oak’s third. Just as good writing has meaning between the lines, Civilian attempts meaning between the sounds: the combinations of harmonies, timbres, and words try to summon vivid and ineffable associations just beyond reach.

Jenn sums up the meaning of the album saying, “this collection of songs is called Civilian because I believe everyone wants to be normal, but no one truly is.”
