Two Tongues is back. The duo, featuring Max Bemis of Say Anything and Chris Conley of Saves The Day, has announced their first tour ever as Two Tongues. In addition to a headlining full band set, the show will also feature a special collaborative set where Bemis and Conley will share the stage to trade off playing songs from their respective band’s collection (including some performed as duets). Also performing on the full US tour is Worcester, MA-based newcomers Backwards Dancer. The four-piece outfit will also serve as the backing band for Two Tongues. Backwards Dancer’s debut EP, New Life In Old Shoes, is out now and is available at BackwardsDancer.Bandcamp.com, and can be streamed below.
“Our first record was a life changing event and making album two was the most emotionally involved process I’ve ever been a part of musically,” notes Bemis. Two Tongues was lying dormant, ready to come out and kick ass when the time was right, and that time is now. Playing all these songs, some of which are almost ten years old, as well as those from our new album and our individual bands, is going to be a special, special experience, not to mention the dynamic of singing to each other live the way we do on the record. I love our new album and I can’t wait for this tour!”
Conley adds, “Ditto! So Way Psyched!! Long Live Two Tongues!!! #AllOurLove.”
Two Tongues formed in 2008 and released their debut full-length in 2009. They will release their long-awaited full-length later this year via Equal Vision Records, with details to be announced soon. A clip of a new song can be heard now below.
