Outfit are excited to announce a full UK & EU tour in support of their forthcoming second album Slowness. In addition to previously announced festival dates – including a performance at Field Day this Sunday – they’ll be playing headline shows across the country and continent in September, culminating in a show at London’s Electrowerkz on the 21st.
To celebrate, Outfit have shared a brand new song in the shame of ‘Framed’ via The Line Of Best Fit. Premiering it as their Song Of The Day, they praised the way it “levitates in a harmonious, dreamlike state.” ‘Framed’ is taken from Outfit’s new album Slowness, released 15th June on Memphis Industries.

At the beginning of last year, Outfit found themselves scattered across two countries and three cities, separated by life and love from each other and from those closest to them. Slowness, their second record, is the sound of its five members snatching intensive weeks to plant themselves in one place, with the tensions of touring, moving, and transatlantic relationships still weighing heavy in mind, to create an album with bold presence.
Slowness paints a portrait of distance using haunting piano, piercing synthesizers and guitars, all underpinned by Outfit’s trademark rhythm section. It dwells on physical distance between lovers, the emotional distance when we return, and the ways in which we imagine each other thousands of miles apart.
The album is available for order on limited edition blue/white swirl colour gatefold vinyl (with download) exclusively from www.outfit.band and select indie stores plus CD and download. All orders from www.outfit.band and iTunes come with instant downloads of ‘Genderless,’ ‘New Air,’ ‘On The Water On The Way,’ ‘Swam Out’ and ‘Framed.’
