Now, Now made NPR’s top 50 releases of the year

nownow_threads_hiresAfter making NNPR’s Top 50, Minneapolis trio Now, Now are starting 2013 strong. The band are excited to announce extensive winter/spring tour dates, including stints on the road with Minus The Bear and Circa Survive, as well select dates opening for Bob Mould as his personally invited guests.

Now, Now have won a steady stream of praise since the Spring 2012 North American release of Threads on Chris Walla‘s (Death Cab For Cutie) Trans- Records. Along the way a growing number of vocal fans have unfailingly showed up to support and sing along with the band as they crisscrossed the continent on separate tours with Fun. and The Naked and Famous.

Up and coming artist “Now, Now” shares a slice of their adventures through Windows 8. A widely circulating commercial for the new operating system features the band and their music, and showcases moments from their tour dates this past summer.
