Balance and Composure Announce Spring US Tour

Today, Doylestown, PA’s own Balance and Composure announced that they will be back on the road this spring, headlining shows across the U.S. in support of their third studio album, Light We Made. After a trek across Australia and a performance at Santa Ana’s When We Were Young Festival, the band will head up to Amityville, NY on April 20th to kick off this leg of dates. The tour ends in Pittsburgh, PA on May 21st and features From Indian Lakes and Queen of Jeans as the support acts.



Light We Made, produced by Will Yip (Nothing, Pity Sex), showcases Balance and Composure toning down their hardcore, punk-rock roots and presenting a record dominated by soothing, harmonic tracks. Lauded as “catchy, groovy and pensively melodic” (Exclaim!), as well as their “most dynamic and ambitious release to date” (The Prelude Press), the album fulfills “its mission to broaden the band’s sound and discard any notions of close-mindedness” (Alternative Press).

Balance and Composure Share New Video for "Afterparty"

Balance and Composure have partnered with Clash Magazine to release the highly-anticipated video for “Afterparty,” the second single from their forthcoming new album Light We Made. “Afterparty” is the sister video to “Postcard,” which premiered previously on Pitchfork. The two videos take Balance and Composure fans through a hallucinogenic safari – the first video is the band within a mind-altering, psychedelic realm, and the second video picks up where the band starts to wake up from their trip.





Both “Postcard” and “Afterparty” appear on Light We Made which is set for release this Friday, October 7th. Balance and Composure will celebrate the release of Light We Made with a pair of intimate CD release shows. Boot and Saddle will host the Philadelphia gathering on Friday, October 7th while Rough Trade NYC will congregate on Saturday, October 8th. The former sold it in less than a few hours and fans who purchase the new album at Rough Trade in Brooklyn will be treated to a full set on Saturday afternoon at 2 PM.

Additionally, as a thank you to fans who purchase an LP or CD of Light We Made, Balance and Composure have supplied a handful of independent record stores across the United States with a free, limited-edition “Postcard” 7” featuring an exclusive, non-album b-side track called “Revelation” (while supplies last).

Balance and Composure Premieres New Video for "Postcard" via Pitchfork

Balance and Composure have released a new video for "Postcard," the first single from their third album, Light We Made (out October 7th). The video was directed by Jason Michael Roberts who created an interesting visual concept utilizing special effects, which he explains:

"Working with Balance and Composure was an amazing experience. They had a pretty broad idea for 'Postcard,' but I want the audience to feel like tourists on a hallucinogenic, safari floating ride from room-to-room in an surreal world, observing the exotic imagery."



Light We Made, which was produced by Will Yip (Nothing, Pity Sex), marks a celebration of growth for the band, with a new ebb and flow sound dominated by soothing, harmonic tracks, which complements their previous body of work.

Balance and Composure will bring their live set on the road this fall for a North American headline tour, plus will make an appearance at this year's Riot Fest in Chicago, and will open for Hum on September 24th in Pomona, CA. All tour dates listed HERE.

Balance and Composure Sign to Vagrant, Announce New Album Light We Made

We’re stoked to welcome Balance and Composure to the Vagrant family. Today the band has announced their third album, Light We Made, will be released on October 7th. Fans who pre-order the album now will instantly receive the project's lead track "Postcard". Special pre-order bundles of Light We Made will also launch today (July 25th) at 3pm ET with multiple limited-edition color variations of the LP artwork and merch.



Light We Made, which was produced by Will Yip (Nothing, Pity Sex), marks a milestone for the band, as this time around they've toned down their hardcore and punk-rock roots, to present a body of work that is dominated by soothing, harmonic tracks. The LP's coherent mood of transcendent moments are driven by the band experimenting with new sonic elements - weaving in dreamy synth chords, melodic guitar riffs, and atmospheric bass grooves and drum beats to hit home the delivery of the songs' emotional lyrics.

"This album is the culmination of the last 3 years, and how musically the band wanted to be more creative than ever before. We took time off to experience life, pushing ourselves to try things that we previously hadn't, which in return inspired us to record something that would stand out. This LP is a sonic progression for us, and we're excited to share it with everyone."

In support of the new LP, Balance and Composure will bring their live set on the road this Fall for a North American headline tour, plus will make an appearance at this year's Riot Fest in Chicago, and will open for Hum on September 24th in Pomona, CA. Tickets for the Balance and Composure headline tour go on sale this Friday, July 29th. Head HERE for more information, and see all tour dates.
