Lower Dens (which is led by singer/songwriter Jana Hunter) released a new album, The Competition, in September via Ribbon Music. Now they have announced some new 2020 tour dates and shared a new documentary, You Belong Here, that features the band going to Moog Music’s headquarters in Asheville, NC. Check out the tour dates and documentary below.

Pick up Under the Radar‘s current print issue (the My Favorite Album Issue) to read our interview with Jana Hunter on their all-time favorite album.

Previously Lower Dens shared a video for The Competition‘s first single, “Young Republicans” (which was one of our Songs of the Week). Then they shared another song from the album, “I Drive,” also via a video for the track (it was also one of our Songs of the Week). Then they shared another song from the album, “Galapagos,” via a lyric video for the track (which was one of our Songs of the Week).

The Competition is the follow-up to 2015’s Escape From Evil. A previous press release said The Competition “might be Hunter’s most vulnerable, hook-filled album yet, a leftfield, resistance pop record that could only be released in 2019.”

Hunter had this to say about the album in the previous press release: “The issues that have shaped my life, for better or for worse, have to do with coming from a family and a culture that totally bought into this competitive mindset. I was wild and in a lot of pain as a kid; home life was very bleak, and pop songs were a guaranteed escape to a mental space where beauty, wonder, and love were possible. I wanted to write songs that might have the potential to do that.”
