Run for Cover Records signs PINEGROVE

2 mins read

Run For Cover Records is excited to announce the latest addition to their label today, Montclair, New Jersey band PINEGROVE. The label will re-issue the band’s retrospective cassette Everything So Far this Friday, October 9th with the addition of a brand new track, “New Friends” which premiered today on SPIN. The site said of the single, “[Songwriter Evan Stephens] Hall’s condensing his talents to one universal microcosm, a new single called “New Friends” which rides sunny-eyed electric guitars and a distant banjo sound tracking Hall’s post-collegiate insecurities.” Everything So Far is available beginning today for pre-order from Run For Cover.

Existing in various forms over the past several years with a rotating cast of members, songwriter Evan Stephens Hall and drummer Zack Levine are the core of Pinegrove.  The two have played music together since the age of seven, following in the footsteps of their fathers who also play in a band together.  When Hall arrived at Kenyon College in rural Ohio, he began to read and write more, thinking about how the two worked together, or as he puts it “how language is melodic and everything actually is rhythmic; that just as literature lives inside its own world, music can make an inviting, emotional, smart world with tradition and community too.”  The earliest Pinegrove songs began to take shape at this point; the band’s moniker is actually derived from a pinegrove at the edge of Kenyon’s campus where Hall would often go to write.

The band have garnered a loyal following for their idiosyncratic indie rock which demonstrates a deep interest in the twangier reaches of American rock, as clearly evidenced on “New Friends”.  Everything So Far is a compilation of Pinegrove’s early EPs and first LP, 2012’s Meridian.  They will embark on a month-long US tour this month, all tour dates can be found below.
