The Skinny: Today Northern Faces unveil their plan to release their self-titled debut full-length album through Equal Vision Records on April 21st. Accompanying the announcement is the stream of album track, “Cops Come,” a driving rock track wrought with vocal hooks and searing guitar solos. Northern Faces will be the follow-up to their impressive debut EP Southern Places, which was released in March 2013.

Northern Faces are looking forward to an extensive touring schedule lined up to and through the release of their new record. They will be making their way down from their hometown of Albany, NY to play shows with The Vinyl Thief on their way to Austin, TX to perform at SXSW Music Festival later this month. They will also be joining The Dear Hunter on the road in May including multiple nights in Boston and New York before heading out West to play iconic clubs such as the Troubadour in LA and The Independent in San Francisco.
