Fat Possum couldn’t be more excited to announce the signing of Austin, TX-based singer-songwriter Adam Torres, whose new album will be released this coming fall.
Torres’ debut album Nostra Nova was initially self-released in 2006, and over the years grew from being a closely-held, sleeper f favorite in the close-knit music scene of Athens, OH (where he lived at the time), to earning “cult classic” status. Upon its 2015 re-release, the album received praise from outlets including The A.V. Club, Stereogum (“a stunner”), VICE (“beautiful, melancholy tunes”), Popmatters, All Music Guide, and Flavorwire, among others. “Alone Together” from Nostra Nova can be streamed here: https://soundcloud.com/adamtorres/alone-together.
Torres and his band – comprised of Thor Harris (of Swans), Aisha Burns, and Dailey Toliver – will head out on a run of U.S. dates in June. Beginning with a Daytrotter session in Davenport, IA on June 2nd, the tour will wind through the midwest and southeast before wrapping up on June 11th in Lafayette, LA. A current itinerary is below.
More information on Torres’ new album will be announced soon.
