serpentwithfeet announces a 2022 tour (features a Valentine’s Day gig at Union Transfer), and new EP ‘DEACON’S GROVE’
Regardless of whether you love or loathe Valentine’s Day, serpentwithfeet will make you think twice when you roll your eyes at the mention of it. The Philly-schooled, Los-Angeles based singer-songwriter announced he will be embarking on a tour in support of his latest full-length album, DEACON, kicking off in February 2022. He will make a stop at Union Transfer on February 14, perfectly aligning with the albums central theme of love.
DEACON is “‘a study rather than a story,’ delving into Black, gay love and the tenderness present in the best companionships, romantic or otherwise,” according to his Spotify artists page. It’s clear through the warm synthesizers and pop influence that the various forms of love are something to be celebrated.
serpentwithfeet also announced DEACON’S GROVE, a companion EP to DEACON, which will be out on Friday via Secretly Canadian. He released a remix of “Fellowship,” with additional verses from Ambré and Alex Isley. The song maintains its original warmth, but the addition of the other vocals feeds into that sense of community he stresses. Tickets for the Union Transfer show go on sale this Friday — more information can be found at the XPN Concert Calendar — and you can stream “Fellowship (Remix)” below.
