Retribution Gospel Choir, the side project of Low frontman Alan Sparhawk, has announced its third record, and the details make it sound like a doozy. The not-so-creatively titled 3 features just two songs—“Can’t Walk Out” and “Seven”—each of which clocks in at about 20 minutes long. “Can’t Walk Out” has been a staple of the band’s live show for some time now, and “Seven” features guest guitarist Nils Cline of Wilco.
The band is playing one show this month and several in February 2013. Dates are below.
December 20—Turf Club—St. Paul, Minnesota
Feb. 9—Schubas Tavern—Chicago, Illinois
Feb. 12—Knitting Factory—Brooklyn, New York (with Nels Cline’s BB&C)
Feb. 13—BAR—New Haven, Connecticut
Feb. 14—DC9—Washington, DC
Feb. 15—Beachland Tavern—Cleveland, Ohio
Feb. 16—Cactus Club—Milwaukee, Wisconsin
