The Features

 

The Features will tour this spring and summer in support of the new album The Features.

With their fourth full-length album, the band look to build upon the success of their most recent record Wilderness, which earned them their late night TV debut on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, and won praise from the likes of Time Magazine, Bust, American Songwriter, and SPIN who described the record as “commanding, spewing volcanic rock with a dramatic flourish, then holding your attention by revealing a deceptively sophisticated wit.”

The band took a dramatic change of pace when it came to recording The Features, spending a spontaneous few weeks in Vancouver, WA outside of Portland at the cabin-esque confines of Ripcord Studios. Unlike on past albums where songs had been worked out on the road in front of crowds, the few of songs pegged for The Features had been played live, and several were still works-in-progress when the band arrived in Canada. “I don’t think we really had any expectations,” says band frontman Matthew Pelham, “we just thought, ‘lets do it differently.’” He and his band mates – keyboardist Mark Bond, bassist Roger Dabbs, and drummer Rollum Haas – were game to shake things up. The result is The Features most inventive and assured album to date. You can listen to more of their new music here.
