Julia Holter released a new album, Aviary, last fall via Domino. It was our Album of the Week and made the Top 10 in our Top 100 Albums of 2018 list. Now she has announced some more summer tour dates for this July. Some of them are cities she's never performed in before and the shows will feature a six-piece band. Check the dates out below, followed by the video for Aviary's "Les Jeux to You."

Pick up our current print issue (Issue 66) to read our interview with Julia Holter on Aviary.

Previously Holter shared a video for Aviary's first single, "I Shall Love 2" (which was our #1 Song of the Week). Then she shared another new song from the album, "Words I Heard," also via a video (and it was also our #1 Song of the Week). Once the album was released, album track "I Shall Love 1" also made our Songs of the Week list. She also shared a making of documentary about the creation of the album. Then she shared a video from "Whether." Then she shared a video for "Les Jeux to You" directed by Geneva Jacuzzi.

Aviary was initially inspired by a line from a 2009 short story by writer Etel Adnan: "I found myself in an aviary full of shrieking birds." A previous press release pointed out that it's a good metaphor for the daily bad news cycle we currently find ourselves in, especially in the modern political climate. "Amidst all the internal and external babble we experience daily, it's hard to find one's foundation," Holter elaborated in the press release. "I think this album is reflecting that feeling of cacophony and how one responds to it as a person - how one behaves, how one looks for love, for solace. Maybe it's a matter of listening to and gathering the seeming madness, of forming something out of it and envisioning a future."

Holter later added: "In a lot of the songs, when I mention love, it's about a seeking for compassion and humility in a world where it feels like empathy is always being tested."
