WET PREMIERES TWO NEW SONGS IN LIGHT OF ONGOING NORTH AMERICAN TOUR

f880b8f3-a462-4fb7-b86d-ea7027a0c398

 

Last week, Wet premiered two new songs on The Fader – the melodic ballad “The Middle” and the arresting, alluring “Turn Away.” The new songs are the band’s first unveiling of new music since their Columbia Records’ debut album Don’t You, which was released in January of this year. Wet also kicked off their North American fall tour  in Philadelphia, PA. Atlanta artist Demo Taped opens for the band on the 20 city trek with performances in major cities including Boston (10/21), Toronto (10/23) Seattle (10/31) and Los Angeles (11/5) before closing out the tour at New York City’s Webster Hall on November 19th.

Wet shared with The Fader,

“These songs are about being stuck in in-between places on a few levels. Being in the ambiguous place between the end of a relationship and whatever is next. Our country being between presidents and feeling the collective anxiety while everyone waits to see what kind of place this is going to be in the next few years. Being between album cycles right now but still touring on Don’t You. Everything feels very up in the air. The thought of doing another tour with no new music to play seemed really unappealing to us, so we spent the last two months working on getting these songs together and out into the world as soon as possible. Working within album cycles and sticking to traditional ways of releasing music seem like less and less relevant every day. These songs are especially exciting for us because they were written, produced, and now are being released all within a couple of months. That’s not something we’ve been able to do in a long time.”

Wet is recognized for their deeply-hued emotional pop well documented by the New York Times, Spin, NPR and others. Rolling Stone included them in their 10 New Artists Defining The Sound Of Now this past spring, noting the band has set themselves apart with music that combines the elegant ache of Nineties R&B with the raw honesty of indie pop…” Crediting Wet’s confessional lyrical style, Don’t You was embraced by critics and music fans alike with the album’s opening track, “It’s All in Vain,” soaring to #1 on Hype Machine and cracking the upper tier of the Spotify Viral 50 chart. Pandora also forecasted them as an ‘Artist To Watch in 2016’ and Consequence Of Sound included Don’t You in their ‘50 Most Anticipated Albums’ of the year list. The band’s previous U.S. tour established them as a breakthrough live act, which continued with a slew of summer festival appearances including Bonnaroo, Firefly and Outside Lands. Wet is comprised of the enigmatic Kelly Zutrau and multi-instrumentalists Joe Valle and Marty Sulkow.
