Lily And Madeleine Announce Headlining U.S. Dates

Lily And Madeleine - Best New Bands

Nashville – Following an extensive U.S. tour supporting Brett Dennen last Fall and a successful UK run with Dawes in November, Indianapolis-based sister duo Lily And Madeleine have announced an upcoming headlining tour in select U.S. cities beginning in Chicago, IL on February 15. They will be joined by bandmates Shannon Hayden and Kate Siefker for the nine-show run, which also includes dates in Milwaukee, Minneapolis, St. Louis, and Indianapolis. Please see below for full tour details. All shows are on sale now and ticket links can be found HERE.

These full-band shows will feature songs from Lily & Madeleine’s critically acclaimed third LP Keep It Together, which released last February on New West Records, as well as fan favorites from their debut and sophomore albums. Keep It Together received rave reviews as critics took note of the sisters’ refreshing and mature new direction. NPR Music praised, “The harmonies from these Indiana-based sisters have always been outstanding. But now on their third album, Keep It Together, Lily and Madeleine have added more texture to their songs,” adding, “What are they going to be doing in 10 years if this is where they are already. That’s incredible.” Additionally, Uncut enthused, “Lily and Madeleine Jurkiewicz’s exquisite harmonies and gentle melodies are still present and correct, though here they venture beyond their initial ‘70s folk sound. ‘Not Gonna,’ ‘Westfield,’ and ‘Hourglass’ shimmer with gentle orchestral soul, while the guitar-driven ‘For The Weak’ is both laconic and robust, like Sleater-Kinney without the spikes. The added muscle suits them…Keep It Together is a work of serious, subtle beauty.”

Lily & Madeleine have also gained considerable attention for the creative and inventive music videos that accompanied the album’s standout tracks. Their recent video for “Westfield” (above) showed the duo as stars in a thrilling musical horror flick and was featured by NPR’s All Songs TV. Previously, the video for the album’s first single “Hourglass” premiered at Entertainment Weekly, which hailed the song and complementing visuals as a “musical dreamscape”; while Paste lauded the “dreamy pop video” orchestrated by director George Salisbury (The Flaming Lips) in the guitar-heavy “For The Weak,” and NPR Music called the enchanting video for “Hotel Pool” “pure beauty.”
