Gardens & Villa to Tour this Spring with Four Festival Stops in the Mix

In a matter of days, Gardens & Villa will embark on a North American tour, sharing dates with both The Shins and Fanfarlo. Not only will be you be able to see the boys in various venues across the country, but also at some of the major festivals happening this year. After a stint at the Snowball Music Festival, the boys will head to perform at 35 Denton Festival, SXSW, Coachella, and finally end their tour with Sasquatch!

Holed up in Portland, OR for the last month, Gardens & Villa just finished recording their new EP with label-mate, Richard Swift. “‘I feel like we’re in some kind of Lost Boys hideout,’ says vocalist/guitarist Chris Lynch.” You can read more about their Portland stay in Sunlight through the Blinds: Gardens & Villa Heed Bridgetown’s Beckon.

Gardens & Villa Compose Film Score & Set to Play at Coachella? It’s True!

Gardens & Villa is the gift that keeps on giving. Just when we thought we’d have to wait for the EP to hear anything new from Santa Barara’s loveliest gang, G&V throws us a bone. And believe me, it’s a pretty cool bone. As part of the 27th Santa Barbara International Film Festival, the boys are composing an original film score to F.W. Murnau’s silent film, “Faust.” G & V will perform the music live on February 4th at Lobero Theatre. The event is co-presented by the New Noise Music Foundation and falls under the festival’s new Cinesonic facet. You can get your tickets HERE.

In other awesome news, GARDENS & VILLA ARE PLAYING THIS YEAR’S COACHELLA. Please try to contain your excitement; it’s been extremely difficult to do so over here. You can see them on both weekends of the festival. Checkout the LINEUP.
