The Antlers give a delicate and captivating performance of “Hospice” for it’s 10-year anniversary in Brooklyn

The Antlers performance of Hospice at First Unitarian Congregational Society was emotional, haunting and precise, at times so quiet that footsteps of those going up to the balcony for a better view could be heard from the main floor pews. Celebrating the ten-year anniversary of the critically acclaimed album, the Brooklyn-based band reworked an already emotional album to make it even more so, in all the best ways possible.

The Antlers announce a tour and reissue of “Hospice” in honor of the album’s 10th anniversary

The Antlers recently announced the reissue of their seminal album Hospice on March 8 via Frenchkiss Records / Transgressive. The reissue will mark a decade since the band first released the album that Robin Hilton @ NPR called “one of the most beautiful and moving works I’ve heard in a long, long time. Just astonishing.”

To celebrate the reissue, Antlers will be playing a handful of intimate shows in the US and Europe. This will be the first time the band will be playing together since 2015. They’ll perform at First Unitarian Congregational Society on March 30 & 31.

In their 13 year history Antlers have released 5 full-length albums, received world-wide critical acclaim and have appeared on The Tonight Show twice. Their most recent album was 2014’s Familiars, so this tour will be their first full set of shows in quite some time.

The reissue of Hospice is to be pressed on double white vinyl and will come with deluxe art and packaging from the original artist behind the artwork, Zan Goodman.

About the reissue and the tour, vocalist Peter Silberman says, “I’m truly looking forward to revisiting these old songs in a new light and seeing your friendly faces again. Your patience and support means so much.” He also indicated that the shows will feature the album in full, including songs like “Sylvia,” “Kettering” and “Bear.” There is no word yet on if the band will debut any new music at the shows, but fingers are of course crossed.
