Snowden Signs to Serpents & Snakes Records, Premieres New Video with Stereogum + Summer Tour Dates
Kings of Leon’s Serpents & Snakes Records are excited to announce that they have signed Snowden, the moniker of Austin, TX-based Jordan Jeffares. Formed in Atlanta in 2003, Snowden released its first full-length album, Anti-Anti, in 2006 via Jade Tree, which was praised by Pitchfork for its “crisply efficient songcraft” and “stylish post-punk.” In February 2012, Jordan recorded his much delayed sophomore album, No One In Control, in the Benton Harbor, MI-studio of Bill Skibbe (The Kills, Jacuzzi Boys). The record is slated for a Fall 2012 release. Snowden will play a run of East Coast tour dates this summer, kicking off at New York’s Mercury Lounge today (July 24th), and culminating at The Garrison in Toronto on August 2nd. The full list of tour dates is below.
