VOLORES consisting of Nathen Maxwell, the longtime bassist and backing vocalist of distinguished Celtic punk outfit Flogging Molly and his singer-songwriter wife Shelby, has announced a summer headline tour supporting their debut album Ages. The husband and wife duo will cover ground throughout the Pacific Northwest, Mountain West, and California. Advance tickets are now available here.
The album explores universal themes of life, love, and death through dark Americana, stylish post-punk motifs, and disarmingly frank lyricism. Also, it celebrates the shared musical passions that brought the Maxwells together – from Leonard Cohen and Elliot Smith to The Cure and Interpol – through unfiltered expressions that cast deeply personal shadows in plain sight, coated only in intuitive melody and elegant songcraft.
Organic, haunting, and relentlessly authentic, Volores’ broad appeal lies in its raw channelling of the mortal condition, including mental health struggles, that they’ve not only experienced but experienced together. Ages was recorded over five days at Sonic Ranch, the world’s largest residential recording studio complex, where countless popular artists have recorded.
