The Suffers have broken out of their native Houston in a big way over the past year or so. 2016 is lining up to be a big year as well, from the looks of it. NPR Music added their new album to their "First Listen" series, so you can get an early listen here. The band also landed a plum spot opening the Lake Street Dive tour....find info on where they'll be at the band's official tour page.
M. Ward is about to release "Like Rain", his first album since 2012. He dropped by Colbert to play "Confession". Like Rain is out 3/4 via Merge.
