The New Vetiver Album Will Be On A (Major) Indie Label

Okay, don't get too freaked out - we're just trying to mess you around with that title. The reality is that SF locals Vetiver have signed with Sub Pop, one of the indie record industry's longest running and most successful labels. Having loved the band's last record of originals, To Find Me Gone, we've been looking forward to the delivery of some new original material in the wake of their covers record and EP that came out this year. Apparently the band's latest, Tight Knit, is finished and ready to go, and will see a street date of February 3rd. Keep an eye out for that. In the meantime, Vetiver is wrapping up the tail end of their winter tour, some dates with The Black Crowes. Unfortunately there are no SF dates, but holiday season is all about travel anyway, right?
