Iron & Wine

Iron & Wine have announced their new EP titled Weed Garden will drop on Aug. 31, and released the tender first single Tuesday (July 24) called "What Hurts Worse."

Weed Garden follows the band's 2018 Grammy-nominated album Beast Epic, and features material that went unfinished during the Beast Epic writing phase. Principal songwriter Sam Beam says the six-song release required going “into the weeds” during the creative process, in order to bring the narrative of Beast Epic full circle.

The band has also added more dates in Sept. and Nov. to the Beast Epic world tour, featuring support from Erin Rae, Carl Broemel and Ohmme. Tickets can be purchased here
