Video: The Old Ceremony plays new tunes at The Pour House

Posted by on Thu, Feb 16, 2012 at 2:35 PM

"It's been a long long time since we've been here," explained The Old Ceremony frontman Django Haskins at The Pour House last week. Accordingly, Haskins and his band came prepared with a handful of new songs from an upcoming untitled album. Of them, a menacing new number, “Beebe, Arkansas," explored the strange New Year's occurrence in 2010 and 2011 of black birds falling from the sky by the thousands. One of the strongest fresh selections of the evening, “Elsinore,” is an absolutely wonderful song about losing one’s love to the sea. In between the new numbers, they also worked through several numbers of what is becoming an extensive back catalog to an enthusiastic crowd. Check the new gems below.
