Jennifer Castle to Make Five Northwest Appearances on Forthcoming Tour

Ontario songwriter Jennifer Castle is announcing her first tour in support of new album, Angels of Death, out now on Paradise of Bachelors and Idée Fixe (Canada). It follows performances at select North American festivals, including Hopscotch Music Festival and Arboretum Music & Arts Festival. Most dates are with The Weather Station. In tandem with today’s announcement and Toronto’s historic Massey Hall celebrating 124 years, Castle is presenting a Live at Massey Hall video, featuring interview and performance footage, including a brand new, otherwise unrecorded song, “Please Take Me, I’m Broken.”

As Castle’s third full-length album, Angels of Death is a sublime meditation on mortality and memory, ghosts and grief. Castle casts a series of spells against forgetting and finality via her mystic-minimalist country-soul torch songs. The album was written and recorded in a 19th century church near the shores of Lake Erie, where her family also lived and experienced losses, struggles, and hard-won growth. The residue of those changes inhabits these bruised musings.

A full list of tour dates can be found below.
