Run For Cover Records Signs The Tower and The Fool
Providence, RI band The Tower and The Fool was recently signed to Run for Cover records.
The band originally started as a songwriting project for two friends Alex Correia and Chris Rosenquest. Once they realized they had something the friends added drummer/producer/friend Mike Poorman (Hot Rod Circuit), Jon Tucker on bass, Zac Clark on keys, and long time friend Chris Capaldi on lead and slide guitars.
According to the press release the band's sound is "Twangy guitars, warm organ swells and a steady Americana backbeat swirl together behind the duo’s acoustic guitars and raspy lovelorn confessionals, calling to mind alt-country staples like Ryan Adams, Bruce Springsteen and Wilco."
The Tower and The Fool will release their Run For Cover debut, XIII, this September on 7” vinyl and digital formats.
The Tower and The Fool will also appear on Run For Cover Records’ upcoming Mixed Signals compilation, commemorating the label’s 50th release. The comp. will be out August 30th and also features such acts as Polar Bear Club, Balance and Composure,Tigers Jaw, Hostage Calm, The Menzingers, Make Do and Mend and many others.
