Last month, vibey Americana outfit Hiss Golden Messenger shared the track “Standing in the Doorway,” a leftover from the Heart Like a Levee sessions, and now they’re one-upping that gift by announcing a fall tour and new album titled, Hallelujah Anyhow — which will be out on September 22nd via Merge Records.

Hallelujah Anyhow will breathe as a hopeful ten-song journey that travels both the light and dark sides to the spectrum of life. Frontman M.C. Taylor offers in a press release:

“I see the dark clouds. I was designed to see them. They’re the same clouds of fear and destruction that have darkened the world since Revelations, just different actors. But this music is for hope. That’s the only thing I want to say about it. Love is the only way out. I’ve never been afraid of the darkness; it’s just a different kind of light. And if some days that belief comes harder than others, hallelujah anyhow.”

Save the date for the September 22nd release of the album, and then catch Hiss Golden Messenger when their tour saves the best for last with a show at World Cafe Live on December 9th. Find more info on tickets here. Listen to “Standing in the Doorway,” below.
